Next fall, North Dakota State is hoping to create a Lakeville West of sorts. The Mostaerts are all in on the interior of the Bison defensive line.

Eli Mostaert was a regular at defensive tackle last fall when NDSU went 14-1 and won its ninth Division I FCS title in 11 years. Will was more of an inside-outside versatile player who mainly was considered a defensive end. No longer. >>>Full story here.

Key losses to graduation the impetuous for NDSU moving Will Mostaert to defensive tackle permanently.
