Kevin Bayer – Lincoln-Way East High School (Frankfort, IL)

The UND Football program has received a verbal commitment courtesy of Lincoln-Way East High School prep fullback Kevin Bayer.  Head Coach Rob Zvonar’s Griffins finished the season 10-1 in Class 7A after going undefeated and gaining the #1 seed for the playoffs, only to lose to the eventual state runner-up Wheaton in the 2nd round.

Bayer, listed as a 5′-11″ 235 pound fullback, got a lot of short yardage carries from both the fullback spot and the tailback spot on offense and was a force off the edge while playing defensive end in the Griffins’ 4-3 defense.  Since he’s probably a bit undersized to play defensive end in the 3-4 in college, we are pretty confident in presuming he will be a true H-back/fullback at UND and will be a big contributor to the UND running game in 2-back sets as a blocker for years to come.

Based on the returning roster in 2012, we think he also could be a candidate to contribute right away at fullback and on special teams next season.

Bayer is the 10th known verbal commitment of the 2012 class.

    Looks like he could be a monster fullback.

    Any news on recruiting visits for this weekend? The only two I had known about committed elsewhere, but maybe they’re still taking visits (Foltz and Jahn). Haven’t seen anyone else listed anywhere.

      We haven’t seen a thing about potential recruits. However, there has to be multiple North Dakota kids coming in soon because there is only two weeks left and they only have 1 commit in Nordby. They should get at least 3 I would think. Plus preferred walk-ons.

    NSD is less than 2 weeks away. What are the odds that we know of all the verbals at this point?

  3. RC says:

    On a separate note, it seems that a number of UND/NDSU targets are getting picked up by Jerry Kill.

    Not a rip on them, but One has to wonder how much of NDSUs recent success is built off the back of Tim Brewster’s tremendous ineptitude.

    Do you guys know whether UND either is or was recruiting OL Sam Lee from Blue Earth (MN)?

    • oskie says:

      I have seen his name linked to UND in several articles/blogs. However, I have never seen anything about a visit or an offer. Judging by his accolades I would have to think UND has been in contact with him.
