Saint Charles (Mo.) Howell tight end Aric Heismeyer was one of the top performers at NDSU's camp earlier last month and the BisonReport caught up with him to learn more about his recruiting.

"I have an offer from Concordia-St.Paul and then a couple of NAIA schools right now," Heismeyer said to the BisonReport.com. "This off-season, I've spoken with North Dakota State, South Dakota, South Dakota State, Colgate, Eastern Illinois, Missouri State, Western Illinois, Indiana State, SEMO, Illinois State, Holy Cross, Tennessee Martin and Murray State. I've also heard some from Illinois, Bowling Green and I received an invite to Missouri's spring game. It's been pretty busy."

NDSU is one school that the Missouri tight end camped at this summer.

"I was invited to their junior day and then I was one of the tight end MVP's at their camp last month," Heismeyer explained. "I was told that they are going to keep an eye on me and follow me through my senior year. I loved the camp and had an awesome time. I got pulled over to do a more private 7 on 7 there too. The coaches said that they love what I can do and that I'm a great kid and natural leader."

An offer from the Bison would be a game-changer for Heismeyer.

"It would mean the world to me," Heismeyer told the BisonReport. "NDSU is my dream school as it's where both of my parents went and my dad played football there. He was there from 1992 - 1995, so if they were to offer, I'd probably commit on the spot. The NDSU coaches have told me that they're going to evaluate my senior film and see where it goes from there in terms of an offer."

The Howell playmaker isn't in a hurry to make a decision.

"I'll make a decision once I find the right place for me. I know as soon as my first division one offer comes, more will soon follow, so I'm being patient and really just working on getting faster and stronger. I'm also trying to work on my technique to help out my team as best I can."
