FARGO -- Sibomana Enock could be called "Mr. Everything" by his Fargo South teammates.

There's good reason. Enock played all over the field last season, from quarterback to running back to wide receiver to cornerback. They also can call him a Bison football commit.

Enock announced his commitment to North Dakota State on Twitter Sunday afternoon. "It feels good, it feels like now just less weight on my shoulders." Enock said after being asked about committing. He had another offer from North Dakota but says that NDSU "was a better fit for him."


Enock hails from Tanzania and has played four different sports during his time at Fargo South. He took home second place in the Class A state track meet in the long jump. That athleticism has translated over to football, where he became a tantalizing prospect to college coaches.

"From play to play he can be a linebacker, safety, corner..." said Fargo South head football coach Tyler Kosel. "On offense, he can move to four of five different positions." Enock showed that versatility in 2019. He rushed for 775 yards and nine touchdowns, which finished second in the Eastern Dakota Conference. Enock completed 17 of 35 passes with two touchdowns and two interceptions at quarterback. Then for good measure added four interceptions on defense.

NDSU coaches project Enock to play safety in college, a position he's ready to take on. "I enjoy playing defense, it lights a fire in me, I can make plays whenever. I'm going to come in and do whatever they want me to do, be a part of the tradition they have there and keep building on." Enock added.

Enock becomes the third commitment for the Bison for the Class of 2021, all of them North Dakota natives. He joins Jaxon Duttenhefer of Mandan and Barika Kpeenu from West Fargo Sheyenne. "They're doing a really good job of trying to get the best talent in the state, they're getting the best guys together."
