Wide receiver Rashod Bateman is a 4-star recruit out of Tifton, Georgia. The 6'2" wide receiver is kind of a big deal. He's the kind of player that you might have heard of even if you don't pay the closest attention to the Gophers football team.
After receiving offers from Texas A&M, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, UCF, Virginia Tech, Ole Miss and Minnesota. On December 20th, 2017 he signed a letter of intent to attend the University of Minnesota and play for the Gophers. Still, you never really know what's in the back of a kid's mind with the opportunity to transfer throughout his college career.
Well, I'm not sure we have to worry about that anymore.
Bateman went out and got himself a Row the Boat tattoo fresh with the University of Minnesota "M" insignia and the phrase "Ski-U-Mah" and this thing ain't small either.
Bateman tweeted a picture of the tattoo on Sunday night that spans from the wrist up to the elbow his right arm.
I think this is the confirmation that we all needed to tell us that Bateman has fully bought into the University and Coach Fleck's football team. I also think I say this for the lot of us...
ROW THE BOAT!
