When Minot girls basketball standout Maggie Fricke took the state tournament by storm in March, she was just an eighth grader. Now, as an incoming freshman, she's drawing attention at the college level.

Fricke was named MVP of the Class A state basketball tournament, helping the Majettes on their state-title run. She's heard from several schools as her recruitment opens. She was offered by UND at the end of March.

The 2023 recruiting class continues to take shape for NDSU football. They added another one today.

Noah Taylor, a safety from Lemont Ill., announced his verbal commitment to play for the Bison on Twitter today. The senior's size and athleticism earned him plenty of attention along with offers from 14 college programs, but Taylor said picking ndsu was an easy choice.

UND also added a class of 2023 commitment this weekend. From Holton High School in Kansas, Jace Boswell made his decision known on Twitter yesterday. The 6’2”, 220 pound incoming senior commits as a linebacker, but racked up over 600 yards of rushing his junior year.
