The Gopher men's basketball team has reportedly added a transfer from Illinois State.  He is 6'10 257 pound Edina, Minnesota native Reggie Lynch.  Lynch averaged 9.5 points and 5.4 rebounds and 2.8 blocks a game as a sophomore at Illinois State.  He'll need to sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules but can resume playing in the 2016-2017 season.

Lynch is a nephew of former Gopher standout, Kevin Lynch.  Head Coach Richard Pitino still has 2 scholarships available that he can use during the late signing period.  Minnesota has been in pursuit of a shooting guard/small forward.
