Oswego three-star ranked defensive tackle Noah Shannon (6-foot-2, 290 pounds) this past weekend announced that he was backing off his earlier verbal commitment to Minnesota and has reopened his recruiting process.
"I wanted to go on a few more college visits to make sure I did make the right decision," Shannon said. "I didn't want to have any regrets about rushing into a decision. I also want to see more schools in person and learn more about them."
Shannon is still very interested in Minnesota and according will "stay in touch with the Minnesota coaches and head coach PJ Fleck almost daily." Shannon also plans to visit Iowa this week and has plans to visit Indiana, Missouri and Arkansas sometime this summer.
