PHD has been doing a lot of talking about the North Dakota class of 2017 so we were starting to wonder, is this the top D1 group of North Dakota talent in a long, long time?

So far Siman Sem and Jordan Meidinger have been offered by, and committed to North Dakota State.  Not to mention Wyatt Carr has two D2 offers already. 

The list will grow too as you know Austin Slaughter and Aanen Moody will get something plus we are hearing really good things about Jacon Mertens, Justin Engg, KyJuan Johnson, Nate Symens, and Deyondre Simpson lately amongst others. 

Can the group add more D1 talent?  That depends on how the kids develop.  Moody definitely has a quick releasing high percentage stroke and as he matures into his frame Slaughter has a chance to develop as well.  Good size. 

Can the 2017 group be the best ever?  Or at least best in awhile?

PHD was reminded recently that in 2008 Jordan Allard and Jordan May went to North Dakota, Luke Martinez went to junior college at Williston State and then on to Wyoming, and of course Austin Dufault blew up on the Grassroots circuit over the summer grabbing
