Gophers cornerback Benny Sapp III has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

The Eden Prairie native announced his decision Thursday on Twitter, writing he is open to recruitment. He is a former three-star recruit.

Sapp played in all 13 games as a freshman and appeared in 11 as a sophomore. The son of former Vikings player Benjamin Sapp II mostly contributed to the Gophers special teams. He did not play in this past Saturday's 49-24 loss to Michigan.
