Trey Lance Leaving North Dakota State to Focus on Training for 2021 NFL Draft

Former North Dakota State quarterback declared for the 2021 NFL draft Tuesday, per Yahoo Sports'Pete Thamel.

Lance made his decision after North Dakota State announced in August it would not play football in the fall and would attempt to hold the season in the spring.

"It's a little bit mind-boggling for me," he told Thamel. "It's been a heck of a ride for the last year. I've learned a ton, I've grown a ton as a person and a football player. I honestly have to give all the credit to the guys around me, to the strength staff and coaching staff and guys I've played with.
