Star Gophers WR Bateman opts out again

November 25, 2020

Star Gophers WR Bateman opts out again … Minnesota WR Rashod Bateman, who was one of the first players to opt out of the 2020 season back in the summer when the option was first made available, but then opted back in when the Big Ten got going, has formally opted out again and will begin preparations for the 2021 draft where he is projected to be a mid-to-late first round selection. Bateman is currently the 4th ranked WR on our positional listing and #25 on the GBN Big Board. The 6-2, 210-pound Bateman was on pace to catch close to 90 passes this fall for the 2-3 Gophers.
