Plymouth (Minn.) Providence Academy quarterback Henry Van Dellen could be close to an offer from NDSU following a great camp performance in June. He spoke with the BisonReport to talk about his recruiting.

"Minnesota-Duluth has offered me, but they're a division two school. I have a lot of interested from D1AA schools," Van Dellen said. "Especially from NDSU who have told me they are thinking about offering me pretty soon. William and Mary said they would be willing to take me as a preferred walk-on and Princeton said if I get the grades to be accepted, they will have me on their team as well."

The Bulldogs and Bison are two teams recruiting the Minnesota quarterback.

"UMD offered me before their camp last week," Van Dellen said. "The head coach saw me at the NDSU 3-day camp and liked me enough to offer, but it was fun at Duluth. I threw the ball well and I think I reassured the head coach a bit. With NDSU, they really liked me camp performance and it seems like a few of their coaches want to offer, but we'll see what happens. Coach Hedberg, the QB coach, he's the one I've been staying in touch with, but at the camp the offensive coordinator really liked me too."

An NDSU offer would be a highlight for Van Dellen.

"It would be awesome," Van Dellen said about a potential NDSU offer. "Who wouldn't be happy to be offered by the reigning national champs. I have a great relationship with Coach Hedberg from talking on the phone with him one or two times a week and he was very helpful at the camp in telling me what he wanted to see from me. I'll be visiting Delaware on the 25th and NDSU on the 27th of this month as well."

Van Dellen and the weight room have become very good friends this off-season.

"I've been in the weight room a lot lately," Van Dellen explained. "I'm also working on throwing as I'm trying to put more touch on my throws when I have open receivers instead of always trying to gun it in."
