The commitments came fast and furious Sunday evening for North Dakota State as the number of verbals doubled for the Class of 2019, all in the same position group; defensive back.
Julian Wlodarczyk – 6’3, 190 pounds, defensive back, Aurora, IL – Wlodarczyk was in Fargo this weekend for NDSU’s camp, he received an offer on Saturday and committed Sunday. He was in demand from other Valley schools, SDSU, Southern Illinois, Western Illinois and UND had all offered him. Wlodarczyk’s high school team, Metea Valley, struggled in 2017 to a 1-8 record.
Anthony Coleman – 5’10, 170 pounds, cornerback, Johnston, IA – Coleman as well was offered Saturday and verbally committed Sunday. Coleman hasn’t played defensive back for a while, he was a running back in middle school, switching to cornerback before his freshman year of high school. He has a great nose for the football, his dad played at D-2 powerhouse NW Missouri State, which also offered Coleman. He is considered one of the top prospects in the state of Iowa, he had an impressive five interceptions halfway thru his senior season, which is a high amount considering how few high school teams actually throw.
Terrell Hall – 5’11, 175 pounds, cornerback, Winona, MN – Hall is a two-way standout for the Winhawks, who posted a 11-1 record in 2017, falling in the 4A semifinals at US Bank Stadium. Hall racked up 1,215 all purpose yards to go along with six interceptions last fall. Hall had offers from South Dakota State and South Dakota, and was receiving interest from Iowa. Winona has reached US Bank Stadium each of the last two years and Halls is a big reason why. He’s projected to be a cornerback in college, he had one game against Red Wing this past season where he returned two punts for touchdowns in the first quarter.
This brings NDSU’s total to six verbal commitments for the Class of 2019 with perhaps more coming later today. Fargo’s Jaden Klabo received an offer this weekend, the senior to be at Davies is one of the standout players in the EDC, he along with South’s Dawson Weisenberger, are two of the top players in the state, each have offers from NDSU.
