Lawrence (Kan.) Free State athlete Bryce Torneden has multiple FCS offers heading into the summer here, but he has one school that stands out above all. Bison Report caught up with Torneden to hear more about his recruiting.
"I just got my fifth offer from North Dakota last week, so I now have offers from South Dakota, South Dakota State, Northern Iowa and North Dakota State along with UND," Torneden said. "It's been a crazy time getting used to the recruiting process, but it's something I really enjoy."
The Free state athlete received his offer from the NDSU head coach himself.
"They're head coach, Coach Klieman is the one who officially offered me, but my recruiting coach is Coach Riley," Torneden explained to the Bison Report. "Coach Klieman told me that there are a variety of different positions I can play and that they don't want to lock me down into one, so they offer is as an athlete. That's certainly good to hear to me. I haven't visited there yet as I wasn't able to attend their junior day, so I might be camping there soon."
Torneden has high interest in the Bison now.
"I know that NDSU has a great tradition of winning and that they have a great coaching staff. I love their fan base as I received a ton of support from alumni and the rest of the coaching staff after word got out about their offer. I don't want to commit anywhere this early, but the Bison are for sure at the top right now. I like them the most as they're showing me the most interest out of all the schools right now and Coach Kiley is already in with my family as he's the coach who recruited and coached my brother."
The Kansas playmaker has a few more camps to attend this summer before a decision.
"I'm planning on camping at North Dakota State, Northern Iowa and Illinois State this summer and planning on making a commitment before the season starts so I can play without that stress on me."
