The Gophers men’s basketball program called on the university’s top official to award its newest scholarship on Tuesday.

In a video posted on social media, head coach Ben Johnson introduced University of Minnesota president Joan Gabel, who then asked Will Ramberg to read a statement.

In front of teammates, Ramberg read an introduction to the new season and then read he was being put on scholarship. Fellow Gophers shouted and mobbed Ramberg in congratulations. Gable got a follow-up hug.

Ramberg, a junior from Grand Marais, Minn., appeared in 13 games last season, averaging 3.7 minutes per game. He totaled five points and four rebounds.

“From Day 1, there was no expectations and he just kept grinding and grinding and grinding and is a big part of what we are doing,” head coach Ben Johnson said in the video.
