Both Gach is coming home.
The 6-foot-6 guard, an Austin, Minn., native, is transferring from Utah to Minnesota, the Golden Gophers announced officially on Wednesday. Gach had tweeted his planned move on Monday.
"We are very excited to welcome Both back to his home state and into our program," Minnesota coach Richard Pitino said in a statement. "He has great length and versatility on the perimeter."
Gach has two years of eligibility remaining, but he would have to sit out a year unless he can get an NCAA waiver.
As a sophomore for Utah in 2019-20, Gach finished second on the team with an average of 10.7 points per game, and he also contributed 3.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists per contest.
Gach made Utes history on Nov. 8 against Mississippi Valley State, becoming the third Utah player to record a triple-double. He wound up with 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
In the regular-season finale, he scored a career-high 28 points in Utah's overtime win against Colorado.
As a freshman, he averaged 7.7 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists.
"He improved every year at Utah because of how much time he put in the gym," Pitino said. "Gopher basketball just got a lot better. Both is a great addition to our basketball program."
Gach joins a group of Minnesota newcomers that includes forward Brandon Johnson (transfer from Western Michigan) and center Liam Robbins (transfer from Drake) plus freshman signees Jamal Mashburn Jr., Martice Mitchell and David Mutaf.
