Columbus (Ohio) Brookhaven defensive back Dominic Jones, who orginally committed to Pitt, and his brother Keith Massey committed to Minnesota minutes ago.
"I'm a Gopher," Jones said late Wednesday night. "And so is my brother. Coach Mason and coach Browning are sitting right here. We just committed.
"Minnesota was the first school to recruit me. Then when we went down there on our official visit every defensive back there showed love. They all wanted us to come there. That's what got me.
"And all the players there from Columbus. And the opportunity to play early. We'll both be defensive backs. And Keith might play some wide receiver."
The 5-foot-8, 177 pound Jones intercepted nine passes as Brookhaven won all 15 of it's games in route to a state championship. He set a school record with 28 interceptions.
The 6-foot-0, 195 pound Massey intercepted seven passes. He is the No. 57 'athlete' prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings.
