Minnesota State Receives Commitments From Tate Pritchard and Aiden Grossklaus

Minnesota State University made a big splash by getting commitments from Tate Pritchard of Lakeville South High School and Aiden Grossklaus of Woodbury High School, within 24 hours of each other. The two homegrown products are tremendous additions for Minnesota State as they look to build their next chapter under new coach Luke Strand.

Pritchard will bring the Mavericks a great two-way player with a high compete level. The 6’1, 185-pound forward scored 57 points in 28 games last season for the Lakeville South. This season Pritchard will play for the Waterloo Black Hawks of the USHL.

Grossklaus is a blue-collar player with skill as he operates well under pressure. Last season, Aiden contributed 36 points in 27 games for an up-and-coming Woodbury team. Grossklaus was selected by Des Moines in the 8th round of the USHL Draft (Phase I) this past spring and is scheduled back at Woodbury High School this winter.

The two commitments show that Minnesota State is looking for hard working, 200-foot players that will make playing against the Mavericks a taunting task.
