"I was able to tour the football facilities and meet with the offensive staff and Coach Klieman," Nebraska linebacker Zach Schlager said to Scout.com. "The defensive staff was in South Carolina that weekend, but I've been able to talk to Coach Entz recently. We also took an academic tour, so overall, I just felt really welcomed and impressed with their winning tradition. I really like that all of the football facilities were close and everything was practically within walking distance at North Dakota State. The Fargodome is pretty incredible and I can't imagine it when a game is happening. The rest of the facilities were at a high level too. I thought their academic support system was good and I was impressed with their engineering department, which is my hopeful major."
"Coach Entz just said that he really likes my play and hopes I can make it up this summer to their camp, while coach Klieman said about the same," Schlager told Scout.com. "He just really explained the program and how I'd really fit in there, plus with that, he wants me up in the summer. NDSU told me that they wanted to offer me as they said that they like my movement and flow to the ball along with my ability to finish tackles. I'm just really honored and excited to have the attention of such a successful program as NDSU. I mean I only have three offers at the moment and NDSU wins games. They'll definitely be involved highly in my thinking process with the decision I'll have to make in this next year. As far as NDSU's location, it's certainly not hop skip and a jump, but from McCook no school really is that close. So location isn't the biggest factor for me. Plus I'm from a rural type community and that's practically what Fargo is just on a larger scale."
Schlager plans to visit the in-state school here soon.
"As of right now the only visit in the process is with Nebraska sometime in the next few weeks. I'm not quite sure at this point when I'll make a decision, it just depends on how the recruiting process goes for me this summer and into senior year."
