North Dakota State landed Lemont (Ill.) High School’s Noah Taylor, a defensive prospect with position versatility.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Taylor verbally committed to NDSU for football Monday, July 4, and projects to play either safety or linebacker for the Bison, he said.

NDSU offered Taylor a couple days ago after he attended a three-day camp in Fargo.

“I absolutely loved it there,” Taylor said. “I was able to stay on campus so I experienced all of it. All the coaches were very cool with me. … I’m excited to be a Bison and join the community.” >>> Full story here.


Here's a running list of NDSU football verbal commitments for the 2023 recruiting class.

Twins turn triple play, break away in extra innings to beat White Sox

There isn’t much Byron Buxton can’t do on a baseball field. That much was on display on Monday.

He just can’t do it on his own.

The Twins center fielder put on a show defensively, beginning a crucial triple play to keep the game tied in the seventh inning. He also hit a two-run home run, producing all of the Twins’ offense through the first nine innings of the game.

In the 10th, he finally got some much-needed help. Luis Arraez’s third hit of the game gave the Twins a lead, and they tacked on three more runs in the inning to beat the White Sox 6-3 on Monday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. >>> Full story here.

On Sunday, that meant scoreless performances from Cody Stashak, who followed Paddack and threw 2⅔ innings, Caleb Thielbar, who struck out all three batters he faced, Joe Smith, Tyler Duffey and Emilio Pagán, who locked down the save after allowing a pair of baserunners in the ninth.
