We are officially under two weeks until the start of fall camp and there have been a few things going on lately. The UND players report to camp August 1st and have their first official practice Saturday, August 3rd.
- Besides the signing of Juco DL Humberto Espinoza, UND also recently signed high school DL Delwaun Beard of Culver City, CA. Beard, 6’2″-230, was an All-Ocean League second team performer for the Centaurs, registering 78 tackles and 6 sacks in their 3-4 defensive scheme. He appears to have pretty good athleticism and a frame to be able to put on some size. Beard is from the same high school as current UND DB Chris Brown.
- The annual UND Football Alumni Golf Scramble is being held today in Prior Lake, MN at the Legends Golf Club. We have heard there are typically 140-150 former UND football players that participate in the event, with the proceeds going towards scholarships.
- The UND coaching staff will be unveiling the new white road jerseys at the previously mentioned golf scramble. Pictures should be popping up on twitter sometime today.
- Incoming recruits Cam Kuksa and Cole Reyes, both of Illinois, have been on campus and working out with the team for most of July. Why this is important is both play the safety position, which is a position that is completely up in the air as we approach fall camp. Both are possible candidates for getting their red-shirt pulled, based on need. Goes without saying, it will depend on how fall camp progresses and how they progress as well. High school ball is one thing, live college reps are a whole ‘nother animal.
