Leaving home: Columbia native flips his commitment from Missouri to Minnesota
About three months after a defensive lineman prospect from Columbia, Missouri committed to Missouri, he’s reportedly de-committed from the hometown team and committed to Minnesota.
Gopher Illustrated reported that 3-star DE Jalen Logan-Redding flipped to the Gophers. Logan-Redding, a 6-foot-4 235-pound edge defender, had other offers from programs such as Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State and Nebraska. He is Missouri’s fifth de-commit since the end of November when Missouri fired Barry Odom. The program subsequently hired former App State coach Eliah Drinkwitz.
Logan-Redding reportedly had 15 offers before the commitment. He is ranked the No. 34 weakside defensive end in the country, and the No. 15 player in Missouri, according to the 247Sports Composite.
When Logan-Redding committed to Missouri, the Tigers’ class was ranked No. 13 in the SEC, and No. 47 in the country, according to 247Sports. The Tigers now have 11 commits, and the class is ranked No. 12 in the SEC, and No. 64 in the country.
