UND QB, WR no longer with football team
WR Izzy Adeoti, a 5-foot-10 junior from Plano, Ill., had a role in the offense for parts of his first two seasons on campus before suffering a significant injury in 2018.
GRAND FORKS — As the University of North Dakota football program turns from the 2019 season ahead to the 2020 campaign, two offensive players have left the team.
Quarterback Noah Grover and wide receiver Izzy Adeoti are longer on the roster.
Adeoti, a 5-foot-10 junior from Plano, Ill., had a role in the offense for parts of his first two seasons on campus before suffering a significant injury in 2018.
In 2017, the true freshman played in 10 games, catching eight balls for 93 yards. In 2018, Adeoti finished with 13 catches and was third on the team with 217 receiving yards.
Adeoti had a career-high 82 receiving yards at No. 5 Sam Houston State in 2018 and scored his first touchdown against Montana later in the year. Adeoti, considered a deep threat for the Fighting Hawks, was injured in an Oct. 21 win at Sacramento State.

After the injury, Adeoti spent most of the 2019 season on the UND scout team.
Grover, a 6-2 junior college transfer from Phoenix, Ariz., ran the UND scout team. His only game action came in UND's 2019 opener against Drake in which he finished 2-for-2 passing for 11 yards. He also had a 5-yard touchdown run.
Appreciative of the man and player UND and the community have helped me to become. I am officially in the Transfer Portal and ready for the road ahead because I believe God’s path is greatest. John 1:2-4 pic.twitter.com/rl7hc0oYtY— Noah Grover (@noahgrover13) December 6, 2019
