The Bison are officially done on the offensive line after Balfour (N.D.) offensive tackle Cordell Volson pulled the trigger in person earlier this afternoon. The BisonReport spoke with Volson to learn more about his decision to become a Bison.
"I love the culture there," Volson said his decision to commit to NDSU. "Also, to get a chance to play with my brother is awesome. I've also always wanted a chance to play for NDSU as it's amazing as I grew up watching them. To finally get a chance to join the tradition there is great."
Volson decided to drive down to Fargo to make the commitment in person.
"My parents thought that I should go commit in person, plus the coaches wanted me to come down and visit, so everything just happened to work out and it felt right," Volson explained. "I was sitting Coach Hedberg's office with my mother and I told him I was in. He then jumped up and hugged my mom and I, then all of the other coaches ran over and hugged me. It was pretty special. I told my brother Tanner around 12:30 PM and he's hard to read, but I think he's excited too. I know the Bison coaches are very excited to have another tackle on board."
It was a tough decision to decide between Volson's top three schools, but now that he has, he's done with recruiting.
"I really enjoyed all three places as I liked the coaching staffs everywhere I went," Volson told the BisonReport. "To me, it came down to family. I wanted my parents to see me play and NDSU was the place that it would happen. I'm all done with recruiting now and am solid to NDSU. I want Bison fans to know I'm just so happy to apart of something so special."
Volson decides to stay home for the Bison
