There is no one on the Gophers’ current roster who can do what Adim-Madumere can do. With his frame, he could easily play tight end at the college level, but both he and the coaching staff (with the exception of tight ends coach Clay Patterson) are set on a future at wide receiver.
Imagine a bigger and faster Tyler Johnson. His combination of size and speed is absurd. Adim-Madumere has the speed to get downfield and behind the defense, and possesses the size and physicality to make a play for the ball. I’ve also heard his hands described as catcher’s mitts.
Adim-Madumere is a pass catcher with the speed of a wide receiver and the build of a tight end. In other words, a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. I think offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca will find a way to utilize him in the passing game this fall.
