Two-star RB set for FCS

11/1/2011

Running back Marcus Horne (Milwaukee, Wis./Bradley) has committed to play for North Dakota State, InForum.com reports.

Horne had several FBS scholarship offers including Akron, Ball State and Central Michigan. Other FCS programs such as Illinois State and Northern Iowa also offered.

Additionally, InForum reports that Iowa, Michigan State and Northwestern extended preferred walk-on opportunities to the 5-foot-9, 190-pound senior.

He's posted a 4.82 40-yard dash, 4.26 20-yard shuttle and 34.8-inch vertical on the combine circuit.

North Dakota State, 8-0 this fall, is ranked No. 1 in the Football Championship Subdivision for the first time in program history. The Bison began FCS play in 2004.
