Mandan’s star Elijan Klein chooses to play football at UND

National Sports

Mandan Basketball and Football star Elijah Klein has decided that we will go to the University of North Dakota and play football.

This season, Klein had a breakout year on the gridiron. He was named all-state as a wide receiver. He also recorded 1,000 receiving yards, which was a first in Mandan school history.

Here is the 6-foot-8 rising senior on why he chose the Fighting Hawks.

“All of their coaches showed interest,” Klein said, “not just certain ones. So that was a major part of it. Also, my mom when there, my brother went there, my sister did a little bit of time there so it’s kind of family thing too.”

Elijah also said that we went on a visit Monday and made the decision that afternoon. He announced his decision today via Twitter.
