Trey Lance is heading to the National Football League.
The Bison sophomore quarterback made it official Tuesday evening in an interview with Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel, confirming he was leaving North Dakota State and beginning preparation for the 2021 NFL Draft.
Lance leaves NDSU after just 17 starts and 19 total games at NDSU, but already with a laundry list of accolades. Lance led NDSU to the first 16-0 college football season since the Yale Bulldogs in 1894. He also became the first freshman to win the Walter Payton Award, which goes to the top offensive player in the FCS.
WDAY Sports Director Dom Izzo and The Forum's Jeff Kolpack break down the decision by Lance to leave NDSU, what it means for the Bison and the FCS. They also dive into the future of the quarterback position at NDSU, as Iowa State transfer Zeb Noland is in position to be the new starter in the spring of 2021.
