Marques Sigle

Omaha North's Marques Sigle, left, recorded 72 tackles, two fumble recoveries and one interception last season for the Vikings.

Two Nebraskans in two days for North Dakota State.

Omaha North defensive back Marques Sigle joined Omaha Skutt’s Tyson Gordon — who committed Monday — in committing to play football for the Bison.

The 6-foot, 170-pound corner in the 2020 class announced his commitment via Twitter on Tuesday.

“It felt like home since I first went up there back in March,” he said. “All the coaches were great, and I made bonds and connections right away. The love everybody showed me just made me feel comfortable.” 

One reason Sigle said he picked the Bison was their winning culture.

“I always had my eyes on them since they started talking to me,” he said. “Why wait if I already love it there and want to be a part of their dynasty?”

The Bison have won seven of the past eight FCS national championships. The winning helps, but what Sigle liked most about NDSU was the culture and the way it recruited him.

“I love the energy up there. It just makes you want to work harder and compete,” he said.

Sigle has the ability to help in the run game and be an effective pass defender. Last season he recorded 72 tackles, two fumble recoveries and one interception for the Vikings.

He will likely start his career as an outside cornerback and could develop into a nickel corner or safety.

Sigle chose NDSU over offers from South Dakota State, Northern Iowa and North Dakota.
