MAYVILLE - Bartholomew Ogbu is on the road less traveled heading to NDSU.

Ogbu was considered the top high school football prospect in the state last year, despite only playing the game for three years. 

Ogbu came to Bismarck from Nigeria in 2014 in pursuit of an education. 

When he first got to the U.S., the Nigerian knowledge about football was minimal. 

With some convincing from his coach Funnon Barker, Ogbu went out for football as a sophomore and has thrived.
