Omaha Skutt vs. York 3.7

Omaha Skutt center Luke Skar (50) and Omaha Skutt guard Tyson Gordon (10) double-team York guard Brady Danielson (24) as he looks for an open teammate in a Class B first-round game at the boys state tournament in March at Pinnacle Bank Arena. 

While Brady Danielson is sticking with basketball over football at the college level, the York star announced Tuesday that he is headed to University of North Dakota. 

Originally committed to Northern State University, Danielson requested his release and will play for the Hawks. 

Paul Sather stepped down as Northern State men's basketball coach in May to accept the head coach position at North Dakota. Sather, who led the Wolves to the NCAA Division II national championship game in 2017-18, compiled a record of 188-89 over his nine years at NSU.

Danielson, a third-team Super-Stater and first-team Class B all-state selection in basketball, averaged 18.7 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Danielson also was a state qualifier in the 400 meters in track.

Danielson was a first-team Super-Stater in football for the second straight year. He caught a school-record 49 passes for 929 yards and seven touchdowns while also being a standout safety.

The 6-foot-3 Danielson committed to Northern State, last year’s NCAA Division II runner-up, in August, but the two-time first-team Super-State football player found himself with more options after catching the attention of Nebraska after another strong season this fall.
