The college football year unofficially starts with National Signing Day.
High school seniors from across the country faxed their Letters of Intent to schools from coast to coast.
At UMD, Curt Wiese’s third recruiting class featured 26 new Bulldogs.
But only one local.
He’s Hermantown’s Kole Zuidmulder.
A two season starter at Quarterback, Zuidmulder moves to Tight End in college.
At 6’5″, 225 pounds, he’s athletic enough to pull off the switch.
But again, Zuidmulder is one of 26 new recruits, and as you’d expect, Wiese is proud of the class he and his staff put together.
“There’s a reason we recruited these young men,” said Wiese. “I think they’re tremendous people, they’re quality students and good football players. The real test will come in the fall when we have an opportunity to work with these guys and see how they fit in to our schemes. We feel really good about this class, feel good about the guys we have coming to campus. I think our staff has done a tremendous job.”
