The Gophers will have the services of their graduate transfer defensive tackle for a bonus season.

Micah Dew-Treadway found out Thursday he earned an extra year of eligibility, a team spokesman confirmed, and will play for the Gophers this upcoming season as well as 2020-21. The 6-4, 300-pound lineman joined the Gophers this past winter after graduating from Notre Dame.



This will give Dew-Treadway six years of eligibility, after the NCAA granted him a medical hardship waiver from a broken foot that kept him out of the 2016 season. He redshirted his freshman year in 2015.

In his two playing seasons at Notre Dame, Dew-Treadway appeared in 21 games with two tackles. The Bolingbrook, Ill., native participated in spring football and could be a veteran leader on the defensive line, especially at his much-turned-over position. 

The Gophers also recently announced their 2022 schedule, most notably playing the first five games at home. Check out the full slate here.
