Xander Okerlund is an exciting player to watch. The 2019 guard from Glen Lake is an explosive scorer. Okerlund has proven to be a top notch talent in Michigan, and colleges are taking notice. He recently received an offer from Lake Superior State University. I recently caught up with Xander Okerlund to talk recruiting and next high school basketball season.
