 Mohamed Ibrahim, Minnesota, Player News

  11/24/21 - RB Mohamed IbrahimrSr/2023, Minnesota, 5-09, 210 (DS#6 RB) + More +

  Minnesota running back Mohamed Ibrahim will return for a sixth year in 2022, after suffering a season-ending lower leg injury in the first game this year. Ibrahim revealed his decision Wednesday on Twitter, which the university confirmed with a subsequent announcement. Ibrahim was picked as a preseason Associated Press second team All-American for 2021, before getting hurt in the third quarter against Ohio State on Sept. 2. He had 163 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries in that game before the injury.

The Gophers also lost running backs Trey Potts and Bryce Williams to season-ending injuries. Ibrahim won the 2020 Big Ten Running Back of the Year award. The native of Baltimore redshirted in 2017 before accumulating 1,160 rushing yards in 2018, the second-most in Gophers history for a player in his freshman season behind Darrell Thompson (1,376). Ibrahim is eighth on Minnesota's career rushing list with 3,003 yards in 29 games. He'll have an opportunity next year to catch Thompson (4,654) for the all-time lead. - AP College Football

  With a senior-laden lineup led by running back Mo Ibrahim, Minnesota entered the season with a prime opportunity to bounce back from a rough year and compete with rivals Wisconsin and Iowa for the West Division title. One week in, the Gophers have already been handed a major setback. Ibrahim will miss the rest of the season because of a lower left leg injury, coach P.J. Fleck announced Monday.

The fifth-year player from Baltimore will have surgery Tuesday and need four to six months to recover. He was a second-team preseason Associated Press All-America selection. "This isn't like you can just say, 'OK, we'll just put the next guy in." You can't do that. He's such a special player, and I think he's the best back in the country for a lot of reasons. One of the biggest reasons is he's an unbelievable person, the hardest worker on this team, the heartbeat of the team," said Fleck, who declined to specify the injury but said Ibrahim sustained a tear. The severity suggested an Achilles tendon. Ibrahim was hurt on the second-to-last play of the third quarter Thursday against fourth-ranked Ohio State, when he ran to the right side for 1 yard and tried to escape a tackle by safety Ronnie Hickman. After Ibrahim planted his left foot, slow-motion replays on the Fox broadcast showed his leg react as if something had popped inside. - AP College Football

  The difference between instinct and learned behavior is hard to define. It's a gray area between the limits of innate ability and where quick-trigger responses from countless repetitions start to kick in. Gophers running back Mo Ibrahim's skills are an example in the difficulty of defining what is given and what is earned. "He is one of the most instinctual players I've had in a long time," U running back coach Kenni Burns said. "He can really feel things and see things and progress through things the right way." But the next thing Burns said dove straight into the gray area. "That comes with years of practice, sitting back and watching, taking his scars, know where he's failed and grown, failed and grown," He said. "I think he's just become this consistent (tailback)."

Ibrahim pointed to the work. He said one day this summer he and backup running back Trey Potts on their own talked about Minnesota's outside-zone running scheme for five hours. Wait, five hours? "Five. Hours." Ibrahim confirmed. "We were just sitting there talking about film and just going back and forth on different things we would do," Ibrahim added. "We couldn't do that (in person due to the pandemic) last year, so now we are happy to do it and just capitalizing on every moment." - Pioneer Press

  The subject came up at times in talks with Gophers football coach P.J. Fleck and running backs coach Kenni Burns during the summer. Mohamed Ibrahim is going to get plenty of attention from opposing defenses this season. "Just talking about what to expect. It's not going to be like last year or like two years ago when nobody knew who I was," said Ibrahim, the reigning Big Ten running back of the year. "People know who I am now. People know I need to take that next big step. They are going to want to stop me this year." Tyler Johnson and Rashod Bateman have moved on to the NFL in recent seasons. Ibrahim headlines the offense now. And he's preparing to handle anything defenses throw at him.

Ibrahim gained 1,076 yards in only seven games last season, a school-record average of 153.7 yards a game. Math can be hard, which is why some of us are writers, but this is fun math. Over a 12-game season, that's a whopping 1,844 yards. He has 2,840 yards in 28 career games. But Ibrahim, a graduate student with a degree in business and marketing, is looking for more while helping the Gophers move on from a 3-4 season. "He's workedhis tail off to transform his body even more," offensive coordinator Mike Sanford Jr. said. "Even more stronger. Even more compact. Even more powerful. Even more twitchy. You're seeing a really, really good version ofMo." - Minneapolis Star Tribune

  There isn't much more the Gophers football team could ask Mo Ibrahim to do in the ground game after he led the Big Ten in rushing last season. Ibrahim, though, has been working extra hard on improving his pass catching this summer. So much so that one teammate jokingly hinted at a position switch for the All-America tailback as the Gophers open training camp this week. "I just want to first start out by saying, 'Shout out, Mo. One of the newest members of the wideouts," senior wide receiver Chris Autman-Bell said at Tuesday's news conference. Without a primary target like NFL first-round pick Rashod Bateman this year, the Gophers are looking to spread the wealth around in the passing game. That means arguably the nation's best running back could be used even more as a receiver.

Ibrahim, a 5-10, 210-pound senior, ranked second in the nation with 153.7 yards rushing per game in 2020, but he caught only eight passes for 56 yards in seven games. "Mo's not just a ground and pounder," Autman-Bell said. "Mo is everything. I believe he's going to show that this year coming up. So, he's been working on nothing but his hands this whole offseason. His routes and his break points. So, I think he's going to show you guys he can be more of a receiver this year." Gophers quarterback Tanner Morgan smiled when asked about Ibrahim as a receiving threat to potentially make the offense more explosive. "Definitely," Morgan said. "Obviously, he's a special running back, but he's even more than that. He's got great hands, and he can run routes at a high level. He's definitely more unique than a lot of people have seen.He can do a lot of things; he's very talented. He's obviously, I think, the best running back in the country. He can catch - for real. He's got really good hands." - Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Mo Money joined the family," the agency said. "Time to hit the ground running #TeamIFA." The Minneapolis-based agency has a few recent Gophers players under its roof, including Rashod Bateman, Tyler Johnson and Blake Cashman. Ibrahim was one of five players named to the Big Ten West honor roll Thursday. - Pioneer Press

  Gophers running back Mohamed Ibrahim, who has rushed for more than 2,800 yards in his collegiate career, on Thursday was named to the Walter Camp Preseason All-America first team. Ibrahim, a redshirt senior from Baltimore, was the Big Ten running back of the year and a third-team Associated Press All-America selection in 2020 after rushing 201 times for 1,076 yards and 15 touchdowns in seven games, averaging 153.7 yards per contest. All of those figures led the Big Ten, as did his 90 points, 12.9 points per game and 168.4 all-purpose yards per game. - Minneapolis Star Tribune

  Gophers star running back Mohamed Ibrahim joked around during the U's spring game May 1 by dressing up as head coach P.J. Fleck. Instead of pads and a helmet, he took on Fleck's semi-formal attire on game days: a necktie and a quarter-length zip-up and accessory of sunglasses. Minnesota's fourth-year running back was out for the game as he observed Ramadan, and the reigning Big Ten running back of the year has little to prove on the field in an intra-squad setup anyway. Plus, given how Fleck plans to liberally use Ibrahim again in the 2021 season, the less wear and tear the better. In previous years at Minnesota, Fleck has prescribed to the theory of having a "pair and a spare" in the backfield, and fostering that depth served him well with combinations of Rodney Smith, Shannon Brooks, Kobe McCrary, then Bryce Williams and Ibrahim entering the mix.

Fleck didn't spread the workload around in 2020 and won't plan on doing that much of it again in 2021. "I've gotten that question a few times," Fleck said Tuesday about a query on Ibrahim's workload. "Mo's going to play. It's not like, 'All right, Mo. Now that you've done all this stuff, it's your last year and we're only going to give you so many carries.' That's not going to happen. He's going to carry the load." Ibrahim led the nation with 28.7 carries per game in 2020. In a shortened seven-game season, he had a staggering 201 rushes for 1,076 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also had eight receptions for 56 yards. "He's one of the best players in college football, and you want him to continue to be one of the best players in college football," Fleck said. "He's what makes your team really good, and your best players when they're on the field make you better. So, he's going to play." - Pioneer Press

  Gophers running back Mo Ibrahim's social-media message Monday followed his consistent theme: Put others first. The reigning Big Ten running back of the year said every yard gained and honor received wouldn't be possible without his teammates, coaches and staff at the U. Then he put his own rising NFL draft stock on the back burner. "I am looking forward to coming back and making more memories in 2021 - which also includes getting my degree," Ibrahim wrote. Next season will be Ibrahim's fifth at Minnesota; last year was his best yet. In 2020, Ibrahim rushed for 153 yards per game, which ranked third in the nation and set a school record. He had 201 carries for 1,076 yards and 15 rushing touchdowns in only seven games. - Pioneer Press

  2020 BIG TEN AMECHE-DAYNE RUNNING BACK OF THE YEAR: Mohamed Ibrahim, Minnesota,...Ibrhaim was also named All-Big Ten First Team by both the coaches and the media. He was the media's lone unanimous player to be named All-Big Ten First Team. Ibrahim is one of 10 semifinalists for the Doak Walker Award, which is presented to the top running back in the country, and is the lone Big Ten back on the list.

Despite playing in only six games, Ibrahim leads the Big Ten in rushing attempts (175), rushing yards (925), rushing touchdowns (15), average rushing yards per game (154.2), all-purpose yards (1,028), scoring (90 points) and points per game (15.0).

  Mohamed Ibrahim ran for two touchdowns following Nebraska turnovers, and a Minnesota team missing nearly three dozen players to COVID-19 protocols or injuries left Memorial Stadium with a stunning 24-17 win on Saturday after being idle three weeks. Ibrahim scored on fourth-and-goal from the 1 to give Minnesota a 10-point lead early in the fourth quarter after Adrian Martinez fumbled at the Nebraska 39. Connor Culp's 30-yard field goal cut it to 24-17 with 4:42 left. The Gophers then called on Ibrahim to finish off the game, having him carry six straight times for 59 yards before they went into victory formation at the Nebraska 6. The Gophers (3-3, 3-3 Big Ten) had their last two games canceled because of a COVID-19 outbreak on the team, and most of their missing 33 players were in the conference's 21-day return to play protocol. It also was Minnesota's first game without star wide receiver Rashod Bateman, who opted out Nov. 25. Nebraska (2-5, 2-5), which beat Purdue on the road last week, hasn't won back-to-back Big Ten games since 2018. Ibrahim finished with 108 yards on 20 carries and Tanner Morgan was 17 of 30 for 181 yards. - Minnesota/AP College Football

  Josh Aune's interception with 44 seconds left at the Minnesota 13-yard line after a disputed penalty on Purdue gave the beleaguered Gophers defense a big lift and preserved a 34-31 victory over the Boilermakers on Friday night. Jack Plummer completed 35 of 42 passes for 367 yards and three scores in his first start of the season for Purdue, which took the ball with 2:01 left at its 39. The Boilermakers, boosted by a career-high 15 receptions for 116 yards from Rondale Moore in his long-awaited return, moved in position for what they believed was a 19-yard touchdown catch by tight end Payne Durham in the final minute. Durham was flagged for offensive pass interference, angering the Purdue sideline after replays revealed scant evidence of a foul. Aune picked Plummer off on the next play. Mohamed Ibrahim, the FBS leader in rushing yards per game, scored his third touchdown of the game - and 13th of the season - early in the fourth quarter to give Minnesota a 34-24 lead before a missed extra point. - AP College Football

  More and more Mo Ibrahim has been a great thing for the Gophers offense in the last two weeks. After a 41-carry, 202-yard and four-touchdown performance in the loss to Maryland last Friday, Ibrahim did more on fewer carries in a 41-14 win over Illinois at Memorial Stadium. Mo Ibrahim again tied a program record with four rushing touchdowns and tied his person best with 224 yards and did it on a relatively light load of 30 carries. With two touchdowns in the opener against Michigan, Ibrahim is the only Big Ten running back with 10 TDs in three games in the past 20 years, according to ESPN. And Ibrahim is first Big Ten player with at least 140 yards and two TDs in three games since Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott in 2014. "I think he's one of the most special backs in America," Gophers head coach P.J. Fleck said. - Pioneer Press

  Mohamed Ibrahim rushed for four touchdowns and Tanner Morgan threw for one more and Minnesota beat depleted Illinois 41-14 on Saturday. Ibrahim now has back-to-back games in which he has scored four rushing touchdowns for Minnesota (1-2, 1-2 Big Ten). Illinois (0-3, 0-3) had 12 players out due to COVID-19 protocols and was down to fourth-string QB Coran Taylor. Starter Brandon Peters and backup Isaiah Washington are out, and third-string QB Matt Robinson remains unavailable after suffering a leg injury early in the Purdue game last week.

Taylor wasn't awful, going 6 of 17 through the air for a touchdown and no interceptions. He suffered what appeared to be a hand injury on his throwing arm early in the second half but remained in the game despite obvious throwing difficulties. One bright spot for Illinois was often-injured running back Mike Epstein, who rushed for 108 yards on 11 carries with one touchdown. - AP College Football

  Don't tell coach P.J. Fleck that Minnesota's narrow win against FCS South Dakota State on Tuesday wasn't good enough. The Big Ten Gophers were double-digit favorites for the season's first game against their neighbors from the southwest, who nearly beat Minnesota in 2009, long before Fleck joined the Gophers. So, when Mohamed Ibrahim finally put the Gophers ahead late in the fourth quarter, Fleck was ready to enjoy a win no matter how others perceive the narrow victory.

"There's hard wins, there are no bad wins, and that is my message to the football team today," Fleck said. "There are no bad wins. That's a really good football team out there." Ibrahim plunged up the middle for a 1-yard touchdown run with 5:39 remaining and Minnesota avoided an upset with a 28-21 win at home against South Dakota State on Thursday night. Winston DeLattiboudere recovered a fumbled exchange between Jackrabbits quarterback J'Bore Gibbs and running back Pierre Strong with South Dakota State holding a 21-20 lead in the fourth quarter. Minnesota capped a five-play, 34-yard drive with Ibrahim's touchdown to pull ahead and extend the nation's longest winning streak of nonconference games to 16 in a row. - AP College 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
