Grand Island Northwest (Neb.) High School's Victor Isele recently attended a North Dakota State football camp and liked what he saw, including the community, the campus and the Fargodome.

"All that stuff, I really liked it," Isele said. "I knew it would be a great place for me to go.”

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound defensive end prospect committed to the Bison on Thursday, June 30, becoming the 12th known commit for the 2023 recruiting class.

Isele had multiple NCAA Division I offers, including South Dakota State and Northern Iowa, which are in the Missouri Valley Football Conference along with NDSU. He's entering his third year as a varsity starter for the Grand Island Northwest football team. >>>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.
