Minnesota football gained a new fan on Wednesday in Grammy award winning singer John Legend. The talented artist happens to be the uncle of Minnesota recruit Michael Brown-Stephens, who signed his national letter of intent on the first day of the early signing period.
The three-star wide receiver attended Springfield High School and is one of Minnesota’s 24 commitments in the 2019 recruiting class.
His uncle noted in his tweet recognizing Brown-Stephens’ accomplishment that he might pose a problem if the Gophers play Ohio State in the future, as Legend is a Buckeyes fan. Legend also tweeted that Brown-Stephens was the same nephew who broke his Grammy award in 2010.
The signing day proved to be fruitful for Minnesota as they landed a new wide receiver and potentially a new, very famous, fan.
