French excels academically also and carries a 3.65 GPA.

"Even this late in the recruiting process our coaches have contacted outstanding student athletes that feel Carroll College is a great fit for them. The three high school athletes from the state of Montana are going to be difference-makers in our program. We are very excited to have Brady as a running back in our program. To find someone of his caliber this late is amazing. He has a great future here and will benefit from being around Dustin Rinker our senior running back this fall," Carroll College head coach Mike Van Diest said.
