"I'm really grateful for the offer from NDSU's head coach, Chris Klieman," East Lake (Fla.) athlete Tupac Blanch said to the BisonReport. "He told me a lot of great things about the school and he said the five years he has been there, they have won championships. He told me about the great quarterback they just had, then he said he wanted me to be apart of it, then he offered me. He said I looked really good on film and that I'm long, tall and fast. He said I could probably make an early impact on the team, but he said he's not going to promise me anything, so I have to work for it. I have no idea what the position he offered me at as I'm being recruited as an athlete, so who knows what I'm going to play at the next level."
Blanch knows a fair amount about the Bison from North Dakota State.
"I think this offer is great as I know they have a good program and I love winning," Blanch explained to Scout. "I only know that they win a lot and they have a lot of championships,. I see them on ESPN every year in the championship too. My interest in them is very high because they're a winning program and I'm a winner too."
A few schools besides the Bison have caught Blanch's eye.
"I'm also looking at Marshall and Kentucky," Blanch told the BisonReport. "I've got a good relationship with coach Fuller from Marshall, and with Kentucky, I like their program as well and I like that they play SEC football. I plan on camping at Florida, North Carolina and my team is going to the FAU camp to scrimmage other teams, but that's it so far. I'd say my chances of visiting North Dakota State this summer is very high because I'd love to visit. My friend, Felix Dixon, is signed there and he told me it's very nice. I'm looking to make a decision in November."
