Benjamin St-Juste decided against continuing his college career at Michigan, but he will remain in the B1G.
Late Tuesday night, St-Juste announced that he would be committing to Minnesota to complete his academic and athletic career. His decision comes after spending two seasons in Ann Arbor. He announced earlier this spring that he would be moving on from the Wolverines.
“Told my family be patient watch me go get it #RowTheBoat #Committed,” St-Juste wrote on Twitter. He also posted photos in Minnesota apparel.

It was initially rumored that St-Juste was retiring from football, but the cornerback shot down those ideas and said he was looking for another home to continue his career. He’ll remain in the B1G but will swap the East Division for the West.
St-Juste is a recent graduate and receive an extra year eligibility waiver from the NCAA while at Michigan. He will be immediately eligible to participate for the Golden Gophers in 2019 and will have three years left in his college career.
As a recruit, St-Juste was a four-star member of the 2017 recruiting class and was one of the top 400 players in his cycle.
