Wally Ellenson Commits to Minnesota

The Minnesota Gophers received their first commitment in the class of 2012 when they landed Wally Ellenson (Rice Lake, WI) earlier today.

Ellenson, a 6-4 wing, held offers from five high-major offers with many mid-majors offering as well.

He had previously taken an unofficial to Minnesota before but after returning from the previous visit he decided to end his recruitment.

"Tubby Smith is a great coach, with a great program and it's close to home" Ellenson said.

"It's close to home, so all my family and friends can come to my games."

Ellenson had planned on taking an unofficial to West Virginia on the 3rd of September and even had a visit planned with the Jayhawks.

Colorado, Nebraska and Oregon State were the latest programs to try to get in the mix with the talented wing.

Danuel House trims list to 10 

Things for Danuel House (Hightower, TX) are becoming a little clearer these days. The five-star small forward recently narrowed down his list to 10 schools.

Arizona, Baylor, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Houston, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio State, Oregon and Texas are the teams still in the mix.

He hasn't scheduled any visits as of yet but according to a source, his first in-home visit will be with the University of Missouri.
