UND has received a commitment from RB Kodee Varner of Baker, Montana. Varner, 6′-0″ 165lbs, was an All State RB for the Spartans this past season, amassing 1,760 yards and averaging 8 yds/carry. Varner is also the defending Class B champion in the 100 meter dash for the state of Montana.
Varner appears to be cut out of the Jer Garman mold. A guy you can get the ball to in space and try to allow them to beat the defender with their speed/athleticism. He will provide depth at the RB position and could possibly return kicks.
