I think that’s Bo’s grandpa who is a dentist in New Rockford. It would be nice to draw some fans from New Rockford to cheer on the hometown stud wearing green and white!

Incredibly athletic family. NR-S was a powerhouse back in the day.

He’s not playing tomorrow. 

Strength and conditioning. 

Good local commit with great bloodlines (minus the NDSU mistakes).

Make UND football great again 

Plummet NDSU football, plummet

These 2020 kids have over 2 years from now before they are expected to contribute.  (180lbs. in 2 years is plausible at 5'11") We are following along with the trend of early signings and it's a necessary evil but I'd sure like to watch kids play their SR year in high school before some final judgements are made.

Agree with your main point (necessary evil) and granted there are so many total roster spots available, but the majority of these local kids aren't promised scholarship money/spots and are more likely to stick around long-term, which gives them more time to build into a contributor. I like what they've done so far.

Interesting to get a couple PWOs committed early.  Currently we're sitting at 16 commits:
5 OL (1 PWO)
2 RB
1 WR/TE
2 WR
2 S (1 PWO)
1 CB
2 LB (2 PWO)
1 NG

Commits are from:

ND - 6 (3 PWO)
MN - 4
WI - 3 (1 PWO)
NE - 1
IA - 1
OK - 1

Last year we finished with 8 commits from ND, so we're not out of the norm so far.

Honestly the 165 is more encouraging to me than anything. To me it shows that he’s not even close to his physical potential. By his second year in our program he’ll probably be 190-200 and way more athletic than he is now. That’s better than getting a kid who’s already fully developed and only has a small amount of improvement to make to max out.

I think his dad played at around 190 and was the same height.  Not sure on his uncle but both were very good/athletic players during their time.  

This kid seems like a heck of an athlete at everything he does.

Definitely some truth to that.  Everyone remembers the kid in 7th grade that was 6' and 200 lbs killing kids on the football field.......me neither!!

I am apparently incorrect in having the following as PWOs.  Which recruit is getting $?

WR Bo Belquist, 5'11”, 170, New Rockford (NR-Sheyenne), ND

LB Dylan Boecker, 6'3“, 200, Menonomie (Menonomie), WI Had DII offers

S Peyton Fisher, 6', 185, Fargo (North), ND

LB Jack Ihry, 6', 200, Hope (FSHP), ND

OT Jack Kuntz, 6'5”, 280, Devils Lake (Devils Lake), ND

Sounds like Belquist is a partial anyway according to Tom Miller.

Sorts related, any prospects in the Manitoba/Saskatchewan area?

Love that pipeline and I think we have a good edge over a lot of schools in that region. The talent may not be as wide, but UND should always be on their radar.

We lost a Canadian kid, Leif Magnusson to SD or SDU. I thought he looked good.
