Two Minnesota offensive linemen hop into NCAA transfer portal
Two Minnesota offensive lineman have leaped into the NCAA transfer portal and will explore other opportunities to continue their college football careers.
According to 247Sports, redshirt junior Ben Davis and redshirt sophomore Nate Ulmor have both entered the transfer portal to explore options outside Minnesota. The report comes after the Golden Gophers closed out their 2019 season with a 38-17 loss to Wisconsin at TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday.
Minnesota finished the year with a 10-2 record.
Ulmor, 6-foot-5, 300 pounds, started his career at Minnesota as a defensive lineman and played in 11 games as a true freshman. He recorded 11 tackles that year. He used the 2018 season as a redshirt and appeared in just one game, Minnesota’s Quick Lane Bowl victory over Georgia Tech, making one tackle.
This season, Ulmor made the switch to offensive line in the offseason and played in four games on either offense or special teams.
Davis, a 6-foot-4, 305-pound lineman, redshirted in 2017 and made his first appearance with the Gophers in 2018. He played in eight games, mostly on special teams. This season, Davis appeared in one game.
Both Ulmor and Davis have the opportunity to return to Minnesota if it’s in their best interest.
