Minnesota received some great news from the NCAA this week regarding the eligibility of defensive tackle Micah Dew-Treadway.

According to Ryan Burns of GopherIllustrated, Dew-Treadway has been granted a sixth year of eligibility, meaning he still has two years to play at Minnesota. He joined the Gophers as a graduate transfer out of Notre Dame.

Dew-Treadway was approved for a medical hardship waiver from 2016 when he suffered a broken foot and missed the season. The defensive tackle has been starting on the front line for the Gophers throughout the spring.

Dew-Treadway didn’t see the field in his first two seasons at Notre Dame, using his freshman year in 2015 as a redshirt season. He then suffered the broken foot the following year. The defensive tackle first saw action in 2017, playing in nine games for the Irish.

Last fall, Dew-Treadway made an appearance in 11 games and made two tackles. Notre Dame finished the year 12-1 and lost in the College Football Playoff semifinals to Clemson. Dew-Treadway transferred at the end of the season.

Dew-Treadway is immediately eligible to play in 2019 as a graduate transfer.
