Signing Day

Sioux Falls O'Gorman power forward Ben Lauer visited the Minnesota State-Minnesota Dragons in August after picking up a scholarship offer from the school over the summer.  

There were other programs interested in the rough and rugged but skilled game of Lauer but the NSIC and the MSU Dragons were the right fit so he accepted their scholarship offer this fall.  Yesterday Ben made it official as he signed his letter of intent and joined the program.

"Ben brings a combination of size, skill and athleticism that we are excited to work with over the course of his career," Dragon Head Coach Chad Walthall said after receiving Ben's signed letter of intent.

"He comes from an outstanding high school and AAU program and will continue to get better in his time at MSUM.  Ben is a phenomenal student that will continue to represent our program across the MSUM campus."

Lauer is a top ten recruit out of South Dakota and was joined by a pair of top 35 talents from Minnesota (Chris Olson from Braham and Johnny Beeninga from Wayzata HS) as well as Evan Hines who is a top 50 talent from Illinois. 

Lauer stands 6-foot-6 and 225
