Minnesota OL, member of 2021 recruiting class, latest to announce decision on transfer portal
The transfer portal continues to turn in the world of college football. The latest occurrence comes out of Minnesota. Offensive lineman Cameron James announced his intentions to leave the Golden Gophers and head coach P.J. Fleck.
James was a part of Minnesota’s 2021 recruiting class. The 6-foot-8, 305-pound offensive lineman did not appear in a game in two seasons with the program.
I want to thank The University of Minnesota, Coach fleck and the entire staff, and my teammates for making my experience as a gopher one to remember. I am truly grateful. With that being said, I have decided to enter the transfer portal with 4 years of eligibility left. pic.twitter.com/PGpjjXjtMf

James is the fourth Golden Gopher to announce his intentions to leave the program. The others are defensive tackle Gage Keys, defensive back Jalen Glaze, and defensive back Steven Ortiz.
Minnesota’s depth on the offensive line could be one reason for James looking to move on. The Golden Gophers will return both of their starting tackles (Aireontae Ersery/Quinn Carroll) and have insurance with younger players at the position.
Minnesota finished the year 8-4 in the B1G West. James will have all four years of eligibility remaining at his new school.
