UND football picks up another Iowa lineman as 2022 class grows to 10 commitments

Prior to coming to Grand Forks, UND offensive line coach Joe Pawlak spent three seasons as a graduate assistant at the University of Iowa.

It's starting to show Pawlak likes the state of Iowa to produce his offensive line prospects.

Borud, who plays state runner-up Southeast Polk, picked UND over offers from South Dakota State, Western Illinois and Southeast Missouri.

"It was definitely coach Pawlak," Borud said of what clinched his decision. "He's a great guy and communicator. He sets the standard there. We hit it off. I like the way he styles his offensive line play."

Borud will be a third-year starter at tackle in high school this fall but said he projects as a guard in college.

"I'm dirty in the trenches," Borud said. "I like to get after the run game."

UND has 10 commitments from the 2022 recruiting class, including 6-foot-6, 305-pound Liam Becher of Iowa City and guard Brett Kelzenberg (6-4, 270) of Plymouth, Minn.
