Gophers RB Mohamed Ibrahim will return for 2022 season

University of Minnesota Gophers running back Mohamed Ibrahim announced Wednesday he will be back with the team in 2022.

Ibrahim announced the news via a Twitter video.

The announcement comes amid speculation Ibrahim might enter the NFL Draft.

"I want to take the time to thank everybody that has supported me, from my teammates, my family, the coaching staff," Ibrahim said in the video, in part. "With that being said, I’m excited to announce that I will be coming back for the 2022 season."

Ibrahim suffered a season-ending injury in the third quarter of Minnesota’s first game of the season against Ohio State on Sept. 2. He holds several school records and was named the 2020 Big Ten Running Back of the Year.
