The Alabama teams generally do a good job of keeping top talent in-state, but it looks like one four-star safety escaped the grasp of Auburn and Alabama.

On Saturday, Scout reported that four-star Kendarian Handy-Holly (6-foot-3, 201 pounds, Jackson, Al.) would be heading to Minnesota with his commitment.

New Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck had done a good job at flipping some of his Western Michigan commits, but this might be a much bigger get for him; securing out-of-state commits is going to be a major part of recruiting for Fleck in his new position, and grabbing a top recruit from Alabama is a good start for that.

Minnesota now has 22 commitments for their 2017 recruiting class. Handy-Holy is their second-highest rated commitment, per 247Sports.
