Moments after the Minnesota Gophers football team announced they’d deny any bowl invitations for the 2020-21 season, junior cornerback Benjamin St-Juste declared for the NFL Draft.

Thank you Minnesota! I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to represent The University of Minnesota. Thank you to Coach Fleck for giving me a chance to reach my dreams on and off the field.

Thank you to every single coach and staff member that pushed me to become a better player and man. Huge thank you to the state of Minnesota and the Gopher fans for the incredible memories.

Last but not least, thank you to my teammates that I now call brothers for life!

With that being said, I am officially declaring for the 2021 NFL draft

Row The Boat


Go Gophers!

St-Juste started his career in Michigan but after some injury issues, he fell out of favor with Jim Harbaugh, who tried to get him to medically retire. Instead, he finished his degree in two seasons and graduate transferred to Minnesota with three years of eligibility remaining.

After two ELITE seasons in maroon and gold, he is now going to the NFL.
