What schools have offered you so far? "North Dakota and South Dakota have offered."

I saw you at one of the Gopher spring practices. How was that?

Have you been able to take visits to UND or USD?
"I've been to UND but not USD."

How was the UND visit?
"It was good. I really like the coaching staff."

How have you been preparing for next season?

Do you have any other visits planned for this summer?
"I have gotten a ton of invites to camps, but I am for sure going to Minnesota and Iowa."

When you visits schools, what do you look for to see if it will be a good fit for you?
