"*Well, Coach Klieman came to Bismarck last Tuesday to see my football coach, Coach Barker, and the following day Coach Barker gave me a call and said NDSU football likes me and it's sound like the were really interested in me, but they expect me to be at their camp this summer," Bismarck (N.D.) defensive end Bartholomew Ogbu said to Scout.com. "I was excited, and he gave me coach Klieman's number and said I should give him a call as soon as I can as he would like to talk to me. So on Thursday, after my baseball game, I received a text from coach Randy Hedberg, asking me to call him. I did, and he ask me to give coach Klieman a call. Right around 9:30 pm Thursday night, I called Coach Klieman, we talked about school, and how the recruiting process has been so far, and then he said, they like me and they will love to have here at NDSU and he offered me a scholarship, He also mentioned that they will like to work with me in the camp to determine how much scholarship I will receive, I was really excited and I am blessed to have received this opportunity. I am looking forward to the camp and I can't wait for June to come. They like me at defensive end and my family was really excited for the offer and we are grateful for the wonderful opportunity. My mom back in Nigeria was full with joy when I told her the good news over the phone."
"I think NDSU has a great program and I enjoyed my visit there a few weeks ago," Ogbu explained. "It was very detailed and personal and they have a great culture at North Dakota State as their coaching was all really nice and friendly. It was an exciting experience for me and I'm thankful for the opportunity. North Dakota has also offered me a scholarship and I'm going to attend both the Bison and UND football camp this summer. That will play a big role in my decision making going into my senior year, as I want to make a decision after the summer going into my senior year. It might be earlier, but I'm sure I will make it before my season. Other than UND and NDSU, I know SDSU is coming to see me soon too, but one thing is for sure. I am excited and blessed to receive an offer from the great program that is the NDSU Bison."
