Keelon Brookins decommits from Gophers to Badgers
The first Gopher commitment of the 2013 Class has just decommitted from the Gophers today and sadly committed to the Badgers. TheBadgerNation broke the news and Star Tribune picked up on it soon after. Keelon is a native Minnesotan that is playing his high school football at Tartan, so losing him to the Badgers is a tough blow to Jerry Kill's attempts to solidify the Minnesota border. Keelon is a solid 3 star defensive back recruit that would be a valuable addition to the Gophers. The good news is signing day is still roughly 7 months away, so who knows what will happen between now and then. Remember that last year highly regarded Andre McDonald decommitted from the Gophers, but ultimately signed his letter of intent to play with the hometown Gophers.
