Bismarck High Standout Ripplinger Commits to North Dakota State

IMG_2640Ryan Ripplinger, a three-time state champion for Bismarck High School, has made a verbal commitment to North Dakota State University.  Ripplinger will join a Bison squad that should be filled with North Dakota talent over the next five years; including former Bismarck High teammate Taylor Nein.

With its proximity to Bismarck and the relationships Ripplinger has built with the staff, NDSU became the perfect choice.

“I chose NDSU because it’s close to home I’ll be close to my support system that has helped me from day 1,” Ripplinger stated to NDwrestle.  “I have a great relationship with the guys on the team and with the coaches. It’s a great school for my educational goals and my wrestling goals. They are on their way up and are building quickly and I can’t wait to be apart of it.”

With a college decision now made, Ripplinger can focus on his senior season, where he is likely to solidify himself as one of the all-time North Dakota greats with a fourth state title.
“My goals are to win another state title and grow as a wrestler and get ready for Division 1 wrestling,” Ripplinger noted of the upcoming year.
