Three days ago, stud Coon Rapids Cardinals LB Jordan Nolan (6'1, 220 lbs.) verbally committed to Coach Cory Suter and DC Shay McClure of the Southwest Minnesota State University Mustangs of the Northern Sun conference (D2). The Mustangs are picking up an instinctual linebacker who is fast sideline to sideline as well as aggressive in getting through gaps in the line. Also a hard hitter, Nolan led Coon Rapids in tackles in 2019 (92) while being a critical piece in terms of leadership and commitment in turning around a historically challenged Cardinals program and led them to the state semifinals in 5A during the '19 season.
It was their best season in decades, and much of the success can be attributed to Nolan. The 2x All-Conference honoree was kind enough to give me and Northstar Football News a few minutes of his time and answer some of the inquiries regarding Coon Rapids' 2019 turnaround, his recruitment as a prep, and his commitment to SMSU in Marshall, Minn.
