The UND Football team has received a verbal commitment to the class of 2013 from Moose Lake-Willow River RB-LB Jake Disterhaupt. Disterhaupt, 6-1″-185, led the Rebels to the state championship game this past fall where they fell 25-22 to Caledonia.
In his senior season Disterhaupt was a standout running back for the Rebels, rushing for 1,630 yards and 18 TD’s. Disterhaupt also added in 381 receiving yards and 5 TD’s. He played in the in the secondary for the Rebels on defense and received a ton of accolades this past season, including Minnesota All-State First Team and being a Minnesota Mr. Football Finalist.
Disterhaupt shows pretty good straight line speed and great vision. We do not see him being a running back at UND, however. He appears to be more of a safety or linebacker in college, more likely a safety. He is an excellent athlete which means he could fill in where needed as his career progresses. Our only concern is that his hips appear to be a little stiff for a corner/safety but he will have more than enough time to work on that through strength and conditioning. However, the kid is a playmaker.
Disterhaupt is the fifth known commitment to the 2013 Class.
