2019 Minnesota Football Redshirt Tracker - Week 2

New, 1 comment

Tracking the freshmen who retain redshirt eligibility for Gopher football through 2 games

NCAA Football: Minnesota at Fresno State Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Week 2 of the redshirt tracker. I am using the participation report on GopherSports.com. Any changes from the game’s participation report will need to be noted and changed here eventually, but for today that is what I am using.

For those unaware, the NCAA changed their redshirt rule in 2018 to allow players to participate in up to 4 games and retain their redshirt status. Once a player hits 5 games, he is going to be a sophomore the following season.

This is a very different year with only 2 defensive and 2 special team’s freshmen seeing action so far this year.

Participated in at Least One Game

  • DB - Tyler Nubin (2)
  • LB - Donald Willis (1) - the only new name added to this list after Willis saw time against Fresno and recorded 1 tackle

  • LS - Brady Weeks (2) - just a matter of 4 games before Weeks moves to the next section below.
  • K - Michael Lantz (2) - your starting kicker

Has Exceeded 4 Games

  • None yet, we are only 2 games into the season

Has Not Yet Participated (only scholarship players listed)

  • QB - Cole Kramer
  • QB - Jacob Clark

  • DE - MJ Anderson
  • DL - D’Vion Harris
  • DL - Rashad Cheney Jr.
  • DL - Logan Richter
  • DL - DeAngelo Carter

  • QB - Zack Annexstad - injured, if he plays 4 or fewer games he will come into next season as a redshirt sophomore.
