After one of the better summer’s of any player in the state, Spencer’s 6-foot-6 wing Jake Kluender is finally starting to generate some well-deserved attention from college programs.

The bouncy and athletic forward picked up four NAIA offers since we last talked with him in May, and is hearing from Division II programs and one Division I school.

“Morningside, Briar Cliff, Northwestern, they’ve all offered. And I’m still seeing D2 interest from University of Sioux Falls, and Wayne State. And then for D3 it’s Buena Vista, that’s it,” said Kluender, who picked up another offer from William Penn late Monday night.

Kluender added: "The Sioux Falls coach just recently texted me, and the Wayne State coach and I talked after a shootout we went down to recently. He just said they were interested in me and they'd be watching me my senior year.”

The talented senior - PHI’s 48th-ranked 2016 - says D2 is the goal, and always has been, but he’s not ruling out NAIA or Buena Vista.
