  08/05/19 - Tanner MorganrSo/2022, Minnesota, 6-2, 210 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  The foot injury that Zack Annexstad suffered last week removed all suspense from the Gophers' starting quarterback battle. With Annexstad out indefinitely, Tanner Morgan is written in as the starter for the Aug. 29 opener against South Dakota State and possibly for the rest of the season. "Tanner's played a lot of football for us," coach P.J. Fleck said last weekend, adding that both Morgan and Annexstad are starting caliber. "Tanner's won some huge games for us."

Morgan opened last year as the backup but started the final six games when injuries forced Annexstad to the sideline. Morgan went 4-2, including big victories at Wisconsin and in the Quick Lane Bowl against Georgia Tech. He completed 58.6% of his passes for 1,401 yards, with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2018. - Minneapolis Star Tribune

  08/03/19 - Zack AnnexstadSo/2022, Minnesota, 6-2, 215 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  University of Minnesota head football coach P.J. Fleck announced today that sophomore quarterback Zack Annexstad suffered a foot injury in practice yesterday and will be out indefinitely. "Injuries are an unfortunate part of the game, and we feel terrible for Zack," Fleck said. "He worked extremely hard in the spring and summer to put himself in position to compete for the starting job, and I know he will recover from this setback to be even stronger. Zack is an elite teammate and person, and I look forward to him being an important part of the team as a leader while he is recovering."

Annexstad started the first seven games of the 2018 season and played in eight total. He was hampered by injuries during the second part of the year and ended his true freshman season with 97 completions for 1,277 yards and nine touchdowns. - Minnesota Football

  2019 PRESEASON WUERFFEL TROPHY WATCH LIST: Winston DeLattiboudere, Minnesota, Senior, DL,...DeLattiboudere, a three year starter at defensive end, is passionate about community service. In less than a year span, he put in over 65 documented hours of community service in local schools around the metro area. He frequently visits elementary or middle schools where he speaks and leads reading and game sessions.

The 65 hours doesn't even count his routine visits to the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital and other one-off opportunities that DeLattiboudere participates in. One thing that DeLattiboudere is most excited for as he enters his senior season is a school supply project that he will be putting on to send school supplies to a primary school in Jamaica and Hmong International in Minneapolis. DeLattiboudere has family connections in Clarendon, Jamaica and still has cousins at the school he plans to send supplies to. - Minnesota Football

  07/29/19 - Rodney SmithrSr/2020, Minnesota, 5-10, 210 (DS#17 RB) + More +

  The Gophers' plans to expand the role of Rodney Smith last season were foiled when the standout running back suffered a season-ending knee injury in the second game. Those plans are now back in play. Head coach P.J. Fleck told WCCO-AM on Sunday he hopes to get Smith more involved in the passing game when the season starts Aug. 29 against South Dakota State at TCF Bank Stadium. "Rodney Smith has worked really hard in terms of not just the running back position, but he's also worked really hard at playing wide receiver," Fleck said on the radio." ...Last year he got hurt, so we weren't able to show it, but he can really do a lot of things in the slot." Smith tore his left anterior cruciate ligament after catching a screen pass on the opening drive of a 21-14 win over Fresno State last September. The Gophers are expected to field a stable of running backs who can contribute this fall. Minnesota will host a local media day Tuesday and hold its first closed practice Wednesday. The first open-to-the-pubic practice will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium. - Pioneer Press

Ron Johnson (no relation) is first with 31 and is followed by Ernie Wheelwright (26) and Decker (24). If Johnson were to duplicate his 2018 season (78 catches, 1,169 yards and 12 touchdowns) in 2019, he would leave Minnesota as the program holder in receiving yards (3,156) and touchdowns (32) and would rank second all-time in catches (205). - Minnesota Football

  2019 PRESEASON MAXWELL AWARD CANDIDATE: WR Tyler Johnson, Minnesota,...Johnson, who was named First Team All-Big Ten (first Gopher receiver to receiver that honor since 2009), is back in Dinkytown for his senior season. Johnson put the Big Ten on notice last year when he made 78 catches (second most in a season) for 1,169 yards (single-season school record) and 12 touchdowns (single-season school record).

He had six 100-yard games, which tied for first in school history in a season and became the first Gopher ever to have four straight 100-yard games in Big Ten play. Johnson's legacy as one of the best to ever wear the Maroon and Gold is already established, but he has a chance to leave as the school's most productive receiver ever. Johnson enters 2019 ranked all-time in career receiving yards with 1,987. Decker is the school record holder with 3,119 career yards and is the only Gopher ever to eclipse 3,000 yards. - Minnesota Football

  2019 PRESEASON DOAK WALKER AWARD CANDIDATE: Mohamed Ibrahim (So.), Minnesota,...Ibrahim rushed 202 times for 1,160 yards and nine touchdowns as a freshman last year. His 1,160 yards were the second most in in the NCAA by a freshman in 2018 and trailed only Oregon State's Jermar Jefferson who totaled 1,380 yards. Ibrahim's 1,160 yards also ranked 30th in the nation last season and were the second most ever by a Gopher freshman.

Ibrahim played in only 10 games last season, which means he averaged 116 yards per contest. He rushed for more than 100 yards in five games to become the first Gopher freshman to do so since Laurence Maroney (five 100-yard games) in 2003 and he set a freshman single-game record with 224 yards against Georgia Tech (most by a Gopher in a single game since Maroney ran for 258 yards against Wisconsin in 2005) in the Quick Lane Bowl (12th-best rushing game in school history). - Minnesota Football

  07/16/19 - Nolan EdmondsrFr/2023, Minnesota, 5-11, 200 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  The Gophers have lost a second player to medical retirement this offseason. Redshirt freshman running back Nolan Edmonds medically retired, a source confirmed Tuesday. He is no longer listed on the Gophers online roster. The 5-11, 200-pound Georgia native was a three-star recruit. He had yet to play for the Gophers and was injured during spring football. Edmonds follows defensive lineman Alexander Reigelsperger in stepping away from the game in the past week. The fellow redshirt freshman endured a concussion and C4 vertebra fracture during spring football. Just like Reigelsperger, Edmonds will be a medical non-counter, which allows the Gophers to keep his scholarship going without it impacting the the total allotment. - Minneapolis Star Tribune
