McFeely blog: Bison get TE transfer from Northern State
Jacob Streit joins brother Joshua, a basketball player, at NDSU
FARGO — North Dakota State added a tight end transfer and it's a Bison family affair.
Jacob Streit announced on Twitter he committed to NDSU after spending five years at Northern State, an NCAA Division II school in Aberdeen, S.D.
He will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Streit's younger brother Joshua is a freshman on the Bison men's basketball team. The family is from Watkins, Minn.
I’m very excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic careers at North Dakota State University. Thank you to everyone who has helped me through this. #GoBison 🤘🏻 @Coach_Roehl @Coach_Entz @Coach_RHedberg pic.twitter.com/TrnXdyvTgg— Jacob Streit (@streit_jacob) December 21, 2021
Streit is listed as 6-foot-4, 215 pounds. He will have to add at least 25 pounds if he hopes to be in the mix for playing time with Bison, who use their tight ends as offensive linemen who can also catch passes.
He had 11 catches for 105 yards and three touchdowns for the Wolves in 2021, who finished 7-4 in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
Streit redshirted in 2017 before starting all 11 games for the Wolves in 2018. He was named second team all-conference after tallying 689 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
Streit received a medical redshirt in 2019. Division II canceled its season in 2020 because of the COVID pandemic.
