Frank Ragnow will strap on the shoulder pads for Arkansas, not the Gophers, next season.
Ragnow, a three-star offensive lineman recruit, announced his decision Friday afternoon at Chanhassen High School.
Ragnow was the third-best recruit in the state, according to Rivals.com, and was a priority on Minnesota's recruiting board this season. He had 17 offers from all across the nation but in the end it came down to three schools: Arkansas, Florida State, and the Gophers.
A chance to play in the SEC was too much to pass up.
The four-star recruit announced his decision Friday at Chanhassen High School.
Gophers football coaches spent the entire season trying to corral the team’s quarterback situation.
And despite an 8-5 season, they never quite figured it out.
So Philip Nelson took matters into his own hands.
The sophomore signal caller, who led the Gophers on their first four-game Big Ten winning streak in a single season in 40 years, announced his decision to transfer last week — a synergic move that will benefit both parties.
Mitch Leidner is now the odds-on favorite to call the shots next season.
