I agree with both considerations; the defender's commitment BEFORE the runner changed his profile, and the fact the runner, dramatically, changed his target profile. Although, it wouldn't be a bad idea for the Minnesota coaching staff to hold a really in-depth discussion about the "Targeting" rule with the ENTIRE team.
