Bison get commitment from LB with Kansas State, Cincinnati offers

Nice commit for next years recruiting class. Not often do the Bison get a 3 Star recruit that has offers from several FBS schools.

FARGO -- The North Dakota State football program got its first verbal commitment for the 2019 recruiting class. It appears to be a leadoff home run.

Middle linebacker Luke Weerts from Batavia, Ill., held scholarship offers from the likes of Division I FBS schools Kansas State, Rice, Cincinnati, Northern Illinois, Air Force and Ball State, but on Wednesday announced he was going with the FCS Bison.

For a change, the FBS trend of not scheduling NDSU caught the attention of a recruit.

“Honestly, all the FBS teams don’t want to face NDSU,” Weerts said. “It’s a cool place and I don’t see the culture changing at all. I see them staying the way they are and that’s what drew me toward them over those FBS schools.”

he 6-foot-2, 230-pound Weerts is a three-star recruit in Rivals.com’s five-star system. The online website lists him as having 17 scholarship offers including Missouri Valley Football Conference schools Southern Illinois, Northern Iowa, Indiana State and Illinois State and future league member North Dakota. Weerts said NDSU was his third offer.

I would have thought NDSU got several of those level recruits every year...

28-2, 27-1 vs IAA, 17-0 at Bridgeforth, 17-0 vs the CAA.
1st Yankee/A-10/CAA team ever to go undefeated in league play in back to back seasons.

K-State and Cincinnati have ZERO shot at a title....

JMU just got a commit from a 247 3 star/Rivals 2 star RB with 16 offers. Half of them are IA, 1 being Purdue.

That said, I dont get excited at 3 star recruits with a slew of I-A offers. Like I pointed out on the JMU board:
-Of the five 3 star (by at least 1 recruit service) recruits signed 2014-2015 under Withers, only 1 panned out.
-Of the three 3 star signed by MH 2017, 1 looks great so far, 1 jury still out on, 1 didn't last a season.
