As the FCS Playoffs kicked off this afternoon, NDSU recruiting will also head into high gear shortly, trouble is the Bison don’t have many scholarships to play with this season, and they already have 7 locked in. But today’s verbal is a big get
for NDSU, in 6’5, 280 pound offensive tackle Zach Ziemer (pronounced Zeemer) from Lakeville North in the Twin Cities. Ziemer had offers from all 4 of the Dakota Schools, both Montana schools and the biggest came from Miami of Ohio. According to Brian Vossen, head coach at Lakeville North told me it was between the Bison and Miami of Ohio, and NDSU won out because the chance to play and the chance to win. Ziemer is a multi-sport athlete who plays lacrosse and according to Vossen is very athletic for a big man and has gigantic feet. Vossen told me that Ziemer is very similar to Zach Johnson, the true freshman for NDSU out of Eastview who has played some spot duty, including a start at South Dakota earlier this year. This is Lakeville North’s 1st Division 1 recruit after their split, the Panthers lost in the 6A title game last night to Eden Prairie, Ziemer is the 2nd giant of this recruiting class, joining with Sioux Falls product Austin Kuhnert, here’s Ziemer’s recruiting video.
