The Minnesota Gophers do not appear to be done spinning the transfer carousel this offseason as former Eastern Tennessee State guard Bo Hodges listed the Gophers as one of his final five transfer choices on Sunday evening.

Hodges is a 6-foot-5 guard that spent the first three seasons of his collegiate career with the Buccaneers. During that time, Hodges averaged 12.7 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists while helping lead the Buccaneers to a 30-4 record last season but decided to transfer after head coach Steve Forbes left for Wake Forest.

The Gophers will battle with Tennessee State, Arkansas, Butler and Eastern Michigan for Hodges' services. 

Richard Pitino has already added a pair of transfers for the upcoming season with Liam Robbins and Brandon Johnson making their plans to come to Minnesota official. The Gophers almost had a third transfer, but Drew Peterson opted to head to USC after originally committing to Minnesota.
