Minnesota adds dynamic Ohio RB to 2025 recruiting class

St. Ignatius Prep (Cleveland, Ohio) running back Grant Washington committed to the Gophers football program on Thursday, reversing his previous commitment from Central Michigan.

Washington had been committed to Central Michigan since May 21, but after the Gophers’ first prospect camp of the summer, he was offered by coach P.J. Fleck and his staff before transferring to the Maroon & Gold on Thursday.

At 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds, he had an impressive junior campaign for St. Ignatius Prep, the same high school as former Gophers kicker Matthew Trickett. He received a total of 15 Division I offers, but the Gophers were his first from a major conference.

The Gophers now have 11 players committed to their 2025 recruiting class and Washington is their first running back. It’s a very big weekend for Fleck and his staff, with more than two dozen official visitors on campus for their annual “Summer Splash” event, so keep your eyes peeled for more All Gophers news.
