In search of playing time, Gopher DT transfers to North Dakota

Jordan Hinojosa

Minnesota defensive tackle Jordan Hinojosa has left the program and transferred to North Dakota, an FCS program not to be confused with North Dakota State. The University of North Dakota announced the new addition Thursday.

“Jordan will bring a hard-work ethic along with explosive play to our defensive line,” North Dakota head coach Bubba Schweigert said in a released statement. “He played against some of the top high school teams in the country down in Miami, then signed with a Big Ten school, so that shows you his ability and potential. We’re excited to add him to our defensive front and see what he can do for us this season.”

Hinojosa redshirted last season for the Gophers but is coming off a solid spring, but a logjam in front of him on the defensive line helped lead to a search for more playing time this fall. He will have three years of eligibility remaining at North Dakota and because he is transferring to an FCS program he will be able to play immediately for North Dakota.

    Yea not to be confused with NDSU. Don’t worry, they are the polar opposite of NDSU
    But their recruits still all have to fly into fargo!
