Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Big news in the recruiting world. Perham senior Payton Jordahl has verbally committed to the University of Minnesota.

Jordahl will long snap for the Golden Gophers.

In addition to long snapping for the Yellowjackets,

He played fullback and linebacker, Leading the team in rushing this past year.

Jordahl had offers from NDSU, UND and South Dakota. But in the end he knew Minnesota was the right fit.

Payton Jordahl/Verbally Commited to U of M: “Ultimately it came down to the great relationships that I had with the coaches at the U of M. I am going to be playing college football but ultimately I am going there to get an education and that part really is important to me and I could see the importance that Coach Kill and his staff put in that. That was real exciting and real important for me to know. That included with the great success that this Gopher program has shown in the turnaround the last two three years here and also it's Big Ten football which is also exciting to think about.”

Jordahl tells me there is a possibility to play right away with the current long snapper just graduating.
