"When I was on my visit there, I loved everything about NDSU," Beyer said. "Then I just thought about it for a week and talked with my family and decided it was the best fit for me."
The NDSU coaches were surprised, but excited to hear that Beyer was in the fold.
"I tried to call Coach Klieman first, but he didn't answer, so I called coach Roehl," Beyer explained. "He was a little surprised at first, but he was very excited. He was telling all of the other coaches and I could hear them in the background and they sounded excited too. Then he had me talk to the offensive coordinator who said he was excited to have me on board. I eventually got in touch with Coach Klieman who also said he's excited for me to be apart of the team and that I could be a big player for NDSU. All the coaches say I'll be a tight end for them as I'll have my hand in the dirt blocking, and going out an catching passes."
Beyer came to a decision and decided he shouldn't wait.
"After thinking about it all for awhile, I just wanted to focus on my senior season this year and not stress about recruiting. I also thought, why wait when I have such a great opportunity with NDSU. My parents think NDSU is a great choice and a great fit for me, so they're on board. I NDSU was the best fit for me both academically and athletically, plus out cabin is less than two hours away, which is like a second home to me anyway."
The Iowa tight end has a few schools he'll still listen to, but plans to shut things down.
"Iowa, Iowa State and Nebraska are still recruiting me, but other than that, I'll be shutting things down. If any of those three schools offer, it could become interesting, so we'll see. I want NDSU fans to know I can't wait to be apart of a 6th national championship in a row and Go Bison!"
