NDSU Football's 2023 recruiting class is rapidly rising as the Bison picked up two new commits on Wednesday.

The day started with Jailen Duffie's commitment, a cornerback out of Illinois.

The cornerback had offers from 19 division one programs, including FBS and the top schools in the Missouri Valley Football Conference.

The Illinois native has yet to step foot onto NDSU's campus, but the conversations he had with defensive coordinator, David Braun and head coach Matt Entz was all he needed to make a decision. >>> Full story here.

It didn't take Easton Stick long to reciprocate scholarship gift from Fargo couple

The annual scholarship luncheon hosted by North Dakota State had a long lasting effect on Easton Stick. If he ever got a chance to endow a football scholarship, he thought to himself, he was going to do it.

It came sooner than he could ever imagine.

NDSU last week announced the Easton Stick Football Endowment, a fund that will create a full scholarship to be awarded to a Bison football player on an annual basis. Stick, a backup quarterback with the Los Angeles Chargers, is just 26 years old. >>> 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.
