Lipscomb Excited for Gopher Days

Hasan Lipscomb, a JUCO running back coming to Minnesota, talked about his rehab from an ACL injury and is excited to be a "big shock to Gopher nation." See what else the Binn Junior College transfer had to say about his progress and future.

Hasan Lipscomb has been spending the last year rehabbing his knee at Binn Junior College in Houston Texas. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound running back from Cypress Ridge in Houston, Texas, has been working hard prepare himself for his transfer to Minnesota this summer.

"I'm just rehabbing my ACL, getting a lot of things situated so I can try to be up there in Minnesota by the summer. I am also preparing to take my ACT. I'm having private tutoring for that so that I can get that adjusted." Lipscomb said, stating that his test date is June 12.

Lipscomb did not participate in football last season as he was rehabbing his knee.

"I had to take a medical redshirt because of my ACL injury," he said.

The rehab has been positive and is ahead of schedule.

"The rehabbing is going good, man. My last visit with my doctor he said that it was more than perfect. The doctor that did the surgery said, ‘You're ready to go.' The main thing is just keeping it steady, just constantly try to get it stronger," Lipscomb said. "That's what I'm doing at the moment, just working on my speed—trying to get that 4.3 back."

"I already started running and cutting. I was already ahead of the game, so basically through the month of May, that's what I'm going to be working on—full explosion and cutting hard on it."

So it comes down to the ACT?

"Yeah, that's what it's coming down to. That's why I'm getting a private tutor," he answered.

Lipscomb is very excited to get to Minnesota and help the team in any way he can.

"I know a lot of people are still waiting to see my next move, but I'm just really trying to stay focused and make sure that I have everything squared away so it can be a big shock to Gopher nation, because I'm really working to make this thing happen."

"Tell Gopher nation that there's bigger and brighter things gonna be happening!"
