The UND football program continues to add North Dakota talent to its 2022 recruiting class.

Lisbon defensive lineman Caleb Olson has become the fourth in-state commitment of the recruiting class.

Olson, a 6-foot-2, 255-pound preferred walk-on, joins in-state recruits Paine Parks of Grand Forks Red River, Sam Strandell of Grand Forks Central and Luke Schweigert of Bismarck Century.

Olson has been a four-year starter for the Broncos at offensive guard and defensive end. He's projected as a nose guard for the Fighting Hawks' 3-4 defense.

Olson said his strengths are in his football smarts.

"I'm motivated and have dreamt about being part of a Division I football game," he said. "The easy part is done."

Olson is a four-sport athlete in Lisbon, competing in basketball, track and field and baseball, as well. He finished third at state in the shot put and discus last year.

"It's definitely a fun process but also exhausting," said Olson, who also held offers from Minnesota State-Moorhead and Valley City State. "After I finally figured out which couple of schools to look at, after looking at everything, UND was kind of a know-doubter. I like the facilities, coaches and environment. It's all something I think being a part of would be great."
