As we tweeted earlier, Detroit Lakes linebacker Brian Labat has committed to UND. Our Detroit Lakes sources told us as much and it was later confirmed via Twitter by Dom Izzo at WDAY.
Labat is a very athletic playmaker for the Lakers and probably projects as an OLB in the 3-4 with UND. The 6-2, 210 pound Labat has played a plethora of different positions for the Lakers and continues an everlong lineage of very successful Detroit Lakes preps who have continued on to UND for college football.
We believe Labat has the athleticism and ability to be a difference maker on the edge from the first time he steps on the field.
Labat accepted the UND scholarhsip offer over some interest from NDSU and is the 4th known verbal in the 2012 recruiting class for UND.
