Arizona State transfer QB Chasen Stangel has committed to Eastern Kentucky. Stangel visited NDSU recently and NDSU coaches had offered him a full scholarship. Below is the text of an email I received from him this afternoon...

Mr. Hallstrom,

This is Chasen Stangel. My dad forwarded your e-mail to me. I wanted to let you know that I will be attending Eastern Kentucky University and playing football for them. This was a very difficult decision to make because of how much I respect and was impressed with Coach Bohl, Coach Vigen and the NDSU program. The visit that I had there was simply awesome. The people, the facilities, the town was more than I expected. I will be a Bison fan for life. I felt so honored that NDSU would even consider me becoming part of their family.

In the end I felt that EKU was the best place for me with regards to the offense that they run and their need for a QB. I have no doubt that NDSU will have a great season as they normally do. NDSU is a first class school and program and any student/athlete would be blessed to play there.

I want to thank you for your interest. I was very impressed. Good luck to you and the Bison this season.

Take care.

Chasen Stangel
