FARGO - Truman Werremeyer made his mark on the local sports scene last February at the Fargodome when he won a state wrestling championship.

As it turns out, he's hoping to make more impressions in that building. Werremeyer announced on Twitter Tuesday evening that he had committed to play football at North Dakota State. Werremeyer is a 6-1, 220 pound fullback and linebacker for the Eagles, who won their season opener last Friday, 42-28 over Grand Forks Central.

Werremeyer's dad, Wayne is the interim head coach of Davies this fall. "It's an exciting time for Truman and the family. Can't find a better place for Truman to go." Wayne said. Truman was one of the few prospects that actually got to meet with the Bison coaching staff in person. He was at NDSU for a junior day visit on March 13th. Later that day the NCAA put out a ban on face to face meetings and all types of on-site recruiting visits.


"We actually had a chance to meet with the Bison coaches right before the coronavirus happened. We had a chance to sit down with Tyler Roehl and Matt Entz and they talked to him about being a Bison." Wayne said. Werremeyer visited Minnesota State Moorhead Tuesday but decided he wanted to play for the Bison.

Werremeyer continues a trend of Fargo Davies players heading to NDSU. Jaden Klabo was an all-state tight end for the Eagles in 2018, he's entering his redshirt freshman year with the Bison. Ty Satter was an all-state player for Davies in 2019 and he is currently a freshman at NDSU.

Werremeyer becomes the 13th commit for the Bison Class of 2021 and the fourth North Dakotan as part of this class. Werremeyer joins Barika Kpeenu from West Fargo Sheyenne, Enock Sibomana from Fargo South and Jaxon Duttenhefer from Mandan.
