Minnesota Golden Gophers head coach P.J. Fleck has not been shy about his desire to bolster the talent on the defensive line, which was a priority in the Gophers’ most recent recruiting class. Well, more help is on the way, as Notre Dame defensive tackle Micah Drew-Treadway has announced his plans to grad transfer to Minnesota after visiting campus over the weekend.
Dew-Treadway redshirted as a true freshman at Notre Dame in 2015 before being sidelined as a redshirt freshman in 2016 due to a broken foot. In his last two seasons with the Fighting Irish, the 6’4’’, 300-lb. defensive lineman saw action in a combined 20 games, recording two tackles.
Coming out of high school, Dew-Treadway elected to sign with Notre Dame over Power 5 scholarship offers from Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, Purdue, Syracuse, Virginia, and Wisconsin. You can check out his full recruiting profile here.
Dew-Treadway will enroll in the spring and be immediately eligible to play in the fall.
Since Fleck was first hired back in 2017, Minnesota has been able to draw transfers from Florida, Alabama, USC, and now Notre Dame.
