Atlantic LB Jephete Matilus changes commitment from Marshall to Minnesota 

By Post Staff

Atlantic linebacker Jephete Matilus (No. 13 on the Big Board) has changed his commitment from Marshall to Minnesota. Matilus (6-foot, 220) said he had been talking to Minnesota since the Gophers were recruiting his former teammate at Atlantic, running back Donnell Kirkwood. He committed to Marshall because he hadn’t received an offer from Minnesota but when it came, he made the switch.

“I always wanted to go there (Minnesota) but I didn’t have the offer,” said Matilus, who added his commitment is solid and won’t be changing.
