P.J. Fleck and Minnesota have added yet another player to an already-deep recruiting class.
Cornerback Shamaur McDowell committed to the Golden Gophers on Sunday, a day after visiting campus. He becomes the 15th member of Minnesota’s 2018 class.

McDowell, who attends Wiregrass Ranch High School in Zephyrhills, Fla., is a 3-star recruit rated the No. 144 cornerback in his class by the 247Sports composite rankings. In addition to Minnesota, he has offers from Cincinnati, Iowa State, Purdue, North Carolina State and more than a dozen others.
Even before McDowell’s commitment, Minnesota’s 2018 recruiting class ranked No. 20 in the nation and No. 6 in the Big Ten. It moved up one spot in the national rankings following the commitment. McDowell becomes the fourth cornerback in the class, joining fellow 3-star prospects Tyrik Henderson, Benjamin Sapp III and Terell Smith.
