A Minnesota offensive lineman will look at continuing his college football career elsewhere after 4 seasons with PJ Fleck’s Golden Gophers.

Austin Beier has reportedly entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

As the Rivals Transfer Portal report notes, Beier made just one appearance during 4 seasons. He redshirted in 2018, made his collegiate debut against Maryland in 2019 and did not see action the past 2 seasons.

Sunday, May 1 was the deadline for players to enter the NCAA transfer portal and play in the 2022 college football season without a waiver. Names continue to trickle out as schools are catching up on entering those players’ names into the portal database. Entering the portal does not bind a player to transfer, but after 4 years and not seeing the field the last 2 seasons, it’s likely Beier will be leaving the program.

Beier will be considered a redshirt senior in 2022. He can use the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver to also play in 2023.
