Hometown: Perham, Minn.

Position: Long Snapper

Height: 6-2

Weight: 210

My Assessment: The Gophers need a long snapper with Jake Filkins graduating and hoping to get a crack at the NFL. Jordahl can come in and compete for the job from day 1. It is hard to get a read on a long snapper from video, but the snaps appear tight and accurate. Overview: Signed Acceptance of Admission - plans to join the Gopher football program in the fall - ranked as a two-star recruit by 247Sports, the 15th best prospect in Minnesota.

High School: Attends Perham High School - served as the team’s long snapper and also played fullback and linebacker - rushed 82 times for 608 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior, while also making 30 tackles - rushed for 1,605 yards and 19 touchdowns during his high school career, while also making 265 tackles - broke up seven passes, forced four fumbles, recovered five fumble and made two interceptions in 39 career games - coached by his father, Mike Jordahl.
