MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Gopher wide receiver Antoine Burns has been cleared to practice after sitting out while the University of Minnesota admissions office waited for official certification of his degree from Rochester Community College.
Burns went through his first workout as a Gopher on Thursday afternoon.
"It was really a tough day, but it was fun, a good experience," said Burns, who completed his final summer school course on Aug. 4.
Burns, who caught 58 passes for 1,100 yards last season at Rochester, worked with the second unit for most of the afternoon. Gophers coach Glen Mason said that after missing 10 full squad practices, Burns' preparation is behind.
