"I got to hang around the other recruits and get to know some of them, plus I got around some of the current players," Illinois tight end Josh Babicz said to the BisonReport. "I also got to tour the facilities and campus, so it was a good time. My host for the visit was Stanley Jones, and he was a very funny and nice guy who always made sure I was having a good time and made sure I didn't feel isolated. His message to me was no matter how hard it gets at NDSU, don't think about quitting and just push through it."
"I talked a lot with coach Roehl and Klanderman when I was up there, and Roehl was very excited to see how I grow through the next four-five years," Babicz explained to the BisonReport. "I can't remember exactly what Klanderman or Klieman said, but they had about the same message that Roehl did. They said they will start me at playing Y, so I can learn the offense, but they see me as a flex tight end who can play on the line and split out wide. I like the idea, plus it'll help me become a more versatile player in the process. My family loved the visit too as my mom felt very welcomed and was impressed with the facilities and the coaching staff."
Bison fans have nothing to worry about with Babicz.
"I'm very happy with my decision to go to NDSU, and will be signing there next week."
