The University of Minnesota signed it's top class ever in the internet era, head coach P.J. Fleck announced Wednesday.

The Gophers recruiting class consists of 15 offensive players and 11 players on defense. Of the 26 signees, seven will enroll at the University in January.

According to 247Sports, Minnesota's class ranks No. 22 in the country giving them the highest ranked class in the Big Ten West for the first time in program history during the internet era.

Minnesota signed six four-star recruits as well as two players in the ESPN300 and ESPN JC50 rankings. That marks the most players the Gophers have ever signed in the ESPN300. The Maroon and Gold also signed two top-25 running backs.

The Maroon and Gold recruited out of nine states and two different countries. They signed five players from both Georgia and Florida, four from both Minnesota and Ohio, two from California and Illinois and one each from Michigan, Missouri, Texas and Australia.

Offensive line was the most heavily recruited group with seven signees. Minnesota also bulked up the trenches on the defensive side signing six defensive linemen. The Gophers also added four defensive backs, three linebackers, three wide receivers, two running backs, two quarterbacks and one tight end.
