"First off, NDSU had a really nice feel on my visit as it couldn't have been better down there," Wisconsin athlete D.J. Stewart said to the BisonReport. "Fargo is a nice area and a really kind community I found that out after visiting a gas station down there by the Fargodome and the lady at the checkout counter couldn't have been nicer. Their campus is great and the coaches I know for sure care for me and I've built a relationship with them the longest. I also can't forget how successful they are as it's crazy how many games they've won in recent years. I know for sure with the culture they have, it's going to be fun and competitive."
"I called coach Klieman to commit, and it went well as he seemed excited and very happy about my choice," Stewart explained to Scout.com. "NDSU wants to use me kind of all-around on their offense as a possible running back, wide receiver or corner back, as they know I'm a really good athlete, but need to figure out what suits me best. I'd say what put NDSU over the top for me was the fact that they are so successful and just the relationships were huge for me. For example, I had a state track meet not too long ago and all the Bison position coaches gave me a good luck text, so I know they really care about me and I need that in a coaching staff because that's how my coaches are here at my high school. My mom is all for NDSU as she fell in love with NDSU after our visit out there."
Bison fans won't have to worry about Stewart.
"This NDSU commitment will shutdown my recruitment process as unless something crazy happens, I don't see myself trying to go anywhere else. They'll be no more camps or visit elsewhere, and I want Bison fans to know I'm beyond grateful to be a Bison now and I hope fans are ready for a show when I get there."
