The Gophers will open three spring football practices to the public once it starts March 12. 

The sessions March 15, March 26 and April 2, all at 4:45 p.m. will be a chance for fans to observe what coach P.J. Fleck has in the works for 2019. The location is to be announced.

The program also announced the time of the spring game as 11 a.m. April 13 at TCF Bank Stadium.

We'll get some more updates from Fleck ahead of spring ball at his press conference this Thursday. As I noted in an earlier blog, he already said on the radio that defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr., will participate after his left foot injury this past season. But running backs Rodney Smith (left ACL) and Shannon Brooks (knee) are not ready yet.
