Defensive end Michael Amaefula topped the list of five Arlington Bowie signees on Wednesday when he inked a letter of intent with the Minnesota Golden Gophers on a very Minnesota-like weather day in Texas.

“Michael is a very smart kid,’’ said Bowie coach Kenny Perry of the 6-2, 240-pound two-year starter.

“He was choosing between the top pre-med schools that were recruiting him, and Minnesota has a new coaching staff looking to get a foothold in Texas. "

The Gophers also plucked Denton Guyer receiver Quint Gardner from the state.
