Tommy Becker and Sean McWhirter Leave Team

Redshirt freshmen Tommy Becker and Sean McWhirter have left the Minnesota Gophers football team and will transfer at the end of the semester, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Wide receiver Mike Chambers left the team last week.

Tommy Becker helped lead Wayzata to a 13-1 record and state championship in his senior season as he was a 2005 Star Tribune and KARE-11 All-Metro choice. Becker redshirted last season and played in four of six games this season at the fullback spot. He was recruited as a linebacker who moved to defensive end before switching to the offensive side of the field.
Sean McWhirter played at Orono and signed with Minnesota as a defensive end. He redshirted his freshman season and had played in just one season this year.
