He was fifth on the Bisons with 54 total tackles, including 33 solos, and registered 4.5 tackles for loss and one sack. Schommer recorded a career-high 11 tackles at Youngstown State and finished with a college-best seven solo tackles against Wyoming and Missouri State.

Schommer finished his NDSU career tied for third all-time with 13 interceptions, starting 41 of 43 contests over four seasons.

In 2007, he led the team with four picks and was third in tackles with 64, earning him all-Great West first-team laurels, which included player of the week honors. As a sophomore, Schommer registered three interceptions, including a 63-yard touchdown return versus Mississippi Valley State. He recorded 32 tackles, including 19 solos, as a redshirt freshman in 2005. He also played baseball for the Bison, hitting .250 with 15 RBI, nine runs scored, six doubles, four stolen bases, a triple and one home run in 30 starts as a catcher and outfielder.

Schommer made the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's all-state first team as a senior for the Cardinals, also getting honorable mention status from the AP and the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association. He made first-team all-conference and All-Northwest Region twice, playing defensive back and running back. He also was an all-state choice as a catcher.
