Minot St University is roughly 1,750 miles away from San Diego, CA. Yet we have players flocking to their program in efforts to change the landscape of Football North Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC). 1st impact player Minot St signed was San Marcos High School wide receiver RS-FR Tyler Nix. As a freshman Tyler was sidelined with several injuries. He broke a bone in his foot. “Sitting on the sideline was rough. I really wanted to help contribute to my team. This year I have had a great summer workout. I feel healthy and I am ready to compete.
Other key impact returners will be Helix High School own Defensive End Jaleel Hunn and Running Back Tyree Hunter. Both where transfer into the program from respectable schools. Both are Jr and are expected to make an impact. “I am excited to get back to work. I think we are young and will surprise a few teams this season”. Expressed Jaleel. Jaleel Hunn appeared in 1 game last season and should be competing for a starting job. Tyree last season appeared in 6 games. He will be heavily counted on to help carry the load at RB.
Vista High School Ryan Lasua RS-FS will be competing to be a starter. Especially after the spring game he had (1 Int, 1FR). He will be a big part of the secondary and hopefully emerge as a leader of that group.
With new addition to the team Nacion Reese LB (San Marcos HS) with his hybrid style of play where he can play either OLB or SS should provide instance depth. Lastly adding Jaime Harris (DL) has a relentless aggression in rushing the Quarterback. Jaime might be a player that can see himself on the field as a true freshman.
Let make no mistake San Diego County players are becoming a key foundation for Minot State football program. Coach Larson who recruit San Diego say he wants to continue to build a pipeline.
Minot St open up vs the #1 D2 school in the nation Minnesota St on Sept 3.
