Wildcats or Pirates

NCAA Football: Holiday Bowl-Minnesota vs Washington State Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Originally, Minnesota Golden Gophers grad transfer Gaelin Elmore was going to decide on where he would play football next year on Friday.

Early in the day, he said he would just announce his top two “because of some complications”.

Those top two? The Arizona Wildcats and East Carolina Pirates.

As we wrote on Wednesday, Elmore would be a very welcome addition to the Arizona defensive line. He would be the tallest lineman, standing at 6-foot-6, and he brings in plenty of high-level experience with him, having played in 38 games the past three years at Minnesota.

It appears the final decision is coming next Friday, but Arizona should feel good that it beat out the likes of South Carolina and Houston, schools that Elmore has visited already. Elmore also held offers from places like Oregon, Texas Tech, and West Virginia.

The addition of Elmore would be a huge boost for this team as it heads into the summer months.
