Former Lumberjack among top rookies
GRAND FORKS - Tyler Follis wasn't a notable recruit.
It wasn't until two weeks before the school year started that anyone picked up the infielder from Bemidji High School.
"I really didn't have a whole lot of options," Follis said. "I hurt myself during my junior year and I wasn't really looked at. But (assistant coach Brian) DeVillers contacted me, said they were looking for young kids to step in the lineup and that he liked the way I was swinging. So, I went for it."
