Gophers football: Prior Lake defensive lineman Jide Abasiri decommits after USC visit

posted in: News | 0

The second shoe has dropped on one of three high school players with questionable commitments to the Gophers football program.

Prior Lake defensive lineman Jide Abasiri said Monday he has de-committed from the Gophers recruiting class for 2024. The three-star prospect is coming off a visit to USC last weekend.

Abasiri, who is listed at 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, committed to Minnesota in March. He was set to follow two Prior Lake players to Dinkytown, until the Trojans started showing interest, including a scholarship offer in November.

After Abasiri made the announcement, fellow Prior Lake alums turned Gophers, Greg Johnson and Martin Owusu, posted emoji faces with questioning expressions on the social media site X.

Minnesota has had five total de-commitments from next year’s class. Two more are feared by the U to be coming down the pike.

Esko, Minn., safety Koi Perich visited Ohio State this weekend, while Gaylord, Mich., linebacker Brady Pretzlaff took a trip to Michigan State. Former U defensive coordinator Joe Rossi, who recruited Pretzlaff to Minnesota, is now set to be the Spartans’ new DC.
