"Minnesota had everything I want," two star offensive guard Joe Ainslie said when asked about his commitment to the Gophers. "It's close to home and they have good football."
"And Minnesota has my major. I want to go into architecture and not all schools offer that."
Ainslie, 6-foot-7 and 285 pounds, is playing offensive guard for Minnetonka (Minn.) Hopkins. He may move to tackle at Minnesota.
Pitt was the other school who had offered Ainslie a scholarship, but he said Virginia was his second choice.
