MADISON, S.D. - Dakota State University head football coach Josh Anderson is proud to announce the signing of 14 additional recruits to the 2012 recruiting class.
"Signing Day was a great day for the Trojans, but we are also very excited about these additional athletes," said Anderson. "We have only a few spots remaining to be filled, and we will post that information when we sign more athletes. I would also like to say thank you to all those who have helped us with our recruiting needs this spring."
Below is the 14 recruits added to the Trojan Football recruiting class:
Brandon Clark, DB – 6'1 – 185, Northland Pines High School/UW Marathon County, son of Charles Clark and Kristie Barnekow of Conover, Wis., Coach: Ryan Clark, Intended Major: Finance. "Brandon has some speed that we are excited about and will add necessary depth to our Defensive Corner position."
Adam Fideler, QB – 6'1 – 160, Sioux Valley High School, son of Ken Fideler of Volga, S.D., Coach: Peter Books, Intended Major: Business Management. "Adam is a tall and athletic quarterback that will develop well into our offense as he stays with our program."

"Trevor has a lot of qualities we were looking for to help with the depth, and the future, of our middle linebacker position. Trevor's coach is also an alumnus of DSU."
Richard Lambert, Jr, WR – 6'0 – 170, North Forney High School, son of Richard Lambert & Kathleen Castillo of Forney, Texas, Coach: James Brown, Intended Major: Technical Communication. "Richard is a diamond in the rough as he was a receiver part of a run-heavy Texas offense. He runs good routes, catches the ball well, but he can also block well."
Ridge Lindberg, DT – 6'2 – 260, Waverly High School, son of Dennis & Hope Lindberg of Strandburg, S.D., Coach Billy Kirch, Intended Major: Biology. "Ridge knows what hard work is all about as he was a main reason for the Waverly-South Shore State Championship and only two losses in these last three seasons as a starter for WSS high school."
