Eric and I visited with Chris Klieman after practice this morning, NDSU has another practice later today in the heat, which the head coach was not upset about as he believes this will be the perfect prep for Missoula on August 29th. NDSU will hold a closed scrimamge tomorrow. Some other updates from today:
- Ben LeCompte continues to get work as both kicker and punter, Klieman believes his range to about 45 yards out and in, Big E will have more on that in tomorrow’s paper.
- A kick/punt returner hasn’t been determined yet, Klieman hoping a younger player stands out there.
- Looking for depth at every position, mentioned offensive line, wide receivers, defensive backs.
- On the injury front; Jordan Champion is battling a hamstring injury, Darrius Shepherd has a hip pointer, Andrew Smith has been out the most with a concussion but the hopes are they all will return next week.
