The letters-of-intent are flying into The Gug now, with Brian Hardin officially rescuing a member of the ND compliance office from her snowed in house. Here’s her official explanation from UND.com’s Live Blog:
Hey everyone this is Jen from ND Compliance. Sorry for the delay on approving the NLI’s. My road is drifted shut. We had a backup plan in place in case this happened, but naturally we are having difficulties. Blame the weather for making you wait!
Joining Jen in the office is Jill Bodensteiner, associate athletic director in compliance and legal affairs to help get things rolling, which apparently they have.
Here are the most recent faxes into the football office:
George Atkinson, WR, Livermore, California
Jarrett Grace, LB, Cincinnati, Ohio
Matthew Hegarty, OL, Aztec, New Mexico
Nick Martin, OL, Indianapolis, Indiana
Cam McDaniel, RB, Coppell, Texas
Davaris Daniels, WR, Vernon Hills, Illinois

Conor Hanratty, OL, New Canaan, Connecticut
Eilar Hardy, DB, Pickerington, Ohio
Chase Hounshell, DE, Kirtland, Ohio
Ben Koyack, TE, Oil City, Pennsylvania
Tony Springmann, DE, Fort Wayne, Indiana
That makes 18 recruits signed and official.
