GRAND FORKS, N.D. – First-year head coach Bubba Schweigert announced the addition of another four-year transfer on Thursday as former Minnesota defensive tackle Jordan Hinojosa (hin-oh-HOE-suh) has decided to join the North Dakota football program. Hinojosa is the second student-athlete from a Football Bowl Subdivision program to make the decision to continue his playing career at UND this week.

He joins Alex Tillman, a defensive back from the University of Houston, who signed to play for UND on Monday.

Originally from Miami, Fla., Hinojosa spent one season at Coffeyville Community College before redshirting for the Gophers and head coach Jerry Kill last season. He will have three seasons of eligibility to play for UND and that will begin with the upcoming 2014 campaign.

“Jordan will bring a hard-work ethic along with explosive play to our defensive line,” Schweigert said. “He played against some of the top high school teams in the country down in Miami, then signed with a Big Ten school, so that shows you his ability and potential. We’re excited to add him to our defensive front and see what he can do for us this season.”

During the 2012 season at Coffeyville, Hinojosa collected 12 tackles and a sack in seven games for the Red Ravens. The 2012 high school graduate from Miami Central High School was the No. 4 rated defensive tackle in the Sunshine State. He helped lead his team to a 13-1 overall record and runner-up finish in the Florida Class 6A State Championship Game as a senior.
