Minnesota has lost its second player in as many days to transfer.

On Monday, redshirt sophomore Hunter Register announced his intentions to transfer from the Gophers football program and look for a new home for next season. He released a statement on Twitter regarding his decision.


Register joins former Minnesota quarterback Demry Croft, who announced he would be moving on from the program on Sunday night.

Register did not see much time on the field in three seasons with the Gophers. He was redshirted in 2015 and played in just one game in 2016, catching one pass for six yards. Last fall, he played in nine games on special teams.

A Lafayette, Louisiana native, Register was a former three-star recruit and was ranked as a top 60 player from the state. He received offers from four B1G programs, as well as nearly every school in Louisiana.

No potential landing spot was named in Register’s statement.
