Moody to walk on at NDSU

Dickinson High receiver Nate Moody agreed Monday to a preferred walk-on offer from the North Dakota State football team.

Dickinson High senior Nate Moody committed Monday morning to be a preferred walk-on for North Dakota State football team.

A preferred walk-on is a player who was recruited by a team and was offered a non-scholarship roster spot

“They went to great extremes to tell him that there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be scholarshipped next year,” said Dave Moody, Nate’s father.

As a senior, Moody gained 1,189 total yards and scored 13 touchdowns en route to a Class AAA all-state first team selection. He caught 42 passes for 654 yards and 11 TD. He has a 4.75-second time in the 40-yard dash and finished fifth in the Class A 300-meter hurdles as a junior.

Moody will become the first Dickinson High School player to play for the Bison since their move to the NCAA Division I’s Football Championship Subdivision. However, he is not the first area athlete to be a preferred walk-on for the Bison since they made the jump from Division II. Brock Gion, a safety from Mott-Regent High School, will enter his junior season with the Bison next fall.

National Letter of Intent signing day is Wednesday.
