FARGO — The 2020 recruiting class for the North Dakota State football team is starting to take shape. Four of the first five commitments in the class are from the area, including Ty Satter from Fargo Davies.

Ty Satter is the son of former Bison running back Tony Satter, who is part of the Bison Athletic Hall of Fame. Ty Satter committed to NDSU on May 16. The Bison had 19 known verbal commitments for the 2020 class through July 27.

NDSU is coming off a seventh NCAA Division I FCS national championship in the past eight seasons. This is the first recruiting class under Bison head coach Matt Entz, who took over the program after the national title game last January with Chris Klieman taking the head coaching job at Kansas State.

The following running log will be updated as verbal commitments happen:

Nolan Jacobs, a defensive lineman from Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, committed on Monday, Aug. 5. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Jacobs also carried an offer from the University of South Dakota and a couple of Division I schools, according to Rivals.com.
