New Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck has barely had time to get settled on Minnesota’s campus, but he already has three commitments in the class of 2017.
And, not surprisingly, all three are former Western Michigan commits.
3-star LB Trenton Guthrie announced Friday night on Twitter that he’d be heading to Minnesota.

Less than 10 minutes later, 3-star QB Tanner Morgan, too, announced he’d be a Gopher.

And 30 minutes later, commitment No. 3 came from Chris Bell, a 3-star receiver out of Bishop McNamara in Illinois.

A fourth 3-star former WMU commit, TE Esezi Otomewo of Indianapolis’ Ben Davis, has also flipped his commitment, according to 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong.
Again, this doesn’t come as a surprise, and the trio admitted they’re making the change to follow Fleck. Expect more in the coming days.
