It's national letter of intent signing day for high school seniors.

The South Dakota and South Dakota State rivalry is as heated as any but now it's literally pitting brother against brother. The Lambert twins from Dakota Valley are going their separate ways.

Tanner Lambert will play football at South Dakota State. Taylor Lambert will play for USD.

Tanner chose the Jackrabbits because he wants to study engineering. Taylor chose the Coyotes because he wants to study business.

The competitive twins can't wait to find out who will have bragging rights in college.

"At first my mom wasn't too thrilled about it but after a couple days it kind of sunk in and she's more open to it," said Taylor.

"I think everybody's surprised," said Tanner. "Everybody figured just because we're twins and everything and we both play football that we would probably go to the same school, but surprise."

USD signed 32 players, with four coming from Siouxland. Along with Lambert, Cherokee offensive Lineman Stetson Dagel heads to Vermillion.

Josh Hunt is a defensive back from Central Lyon/George Little Rock.

Brandt Van Roekel quarterbacked Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley to the state quarterfinals. He's listed as an athlete and could switch from the QB spot.
