Minnesota lands a commitment from 6-foot-10 transfer


Minnesota added some depth to their front court on Tuesday as Reggie Lynch, a transfer from Illinois State, committed to the Gophers.

A source confirmed the news to NBCSports.com.

Lynch is a 6-foot-10 center from Edina, Minnesota. He averaged 9.5 points and 5.4 boards as a sophomore with the Redbirds. He is the nephew of former Minnesota big man Kevin Lynch.

Reggie will join a recruiting class that includes Dupree McBrayer, Kevin Dorsey, Jarvis Johnson and Jonathan Nwankwo, and while he has two seasons of eligibility remaining, he will have to sit out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
