Minnesota is adding a veteran defensive piece via the transfer portal for 2023.

Sunday evening, linebacker Ryan Selig out of Western Michigan revealed his commitment to the Golden Gophers on social media. Selig was a key piece for the Broncos over the past two seasons.

During the 2021 season, Selig produced 63 total tackles with 7 TFL and 3.5 sacks. In 2022, Selig compiled 72 tackles with 5.5 for loss and 1.5 sacks.

For his career, Selig has tallied 153 total tackles, 13.5 TFL and 6 sacks with an interception and a forced fumble. He brings a lot of experience with him to Minneapolis to try and plug a hole for the Minnesota defense.

Selig is the second player out of Western Michigan to select the Gophers as a transfer destination. Wide receiver Corey Crooms also committed via the portal over the weekend.
