Sorenson commits to Beavers during early signing period for 2015-16

BEMIDJI, Minn. – The Bemidji State University head men’s basketball coach Mike Boschee announced today that Kyle Sorenson (Caledonia, Minn.) has committed to the Beavers’ basketball program and will enroll at the University next fall.

All signees are contingent upon admission to BSU and compliance with NCAA rules, including certification by the NCAA Eligibility Center.

“We are excited to add Kyle to the BSU basketball program,” said Boschee. “He will make an impact both on and off the court.”

Kyle Sorenson, a 6’7” forward, is a two-time letter winner in basketball and baseball for the Caledonia High School Warriors. He was named to the All-State team and he earned first team honors from the Three Rivers Conference, Winona Daily News and the La Crosse Tribune for the 2013-14 season. In 22 games played last season, he led the Warriors averaging 14.8 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. Sorenson was also a team captain during his junior season and helped the Warriors to a 29-3 record and third place finish in the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) Class AA state tournament last winter.

Academically, Sorenson is a member of the National Honor Society, a Science Bowl team member and last year was named to the Academic All-Three Rivers team.

Sorenson is the son of Scott and Kris Sorensen of Caledonia, Minn. He is undecided on a major at BSU.

“He is a versatile post that can move inside and out,” Boschee stated. “He has a great motor and has proven he will do what it takes to be successful.”

The Beavers are set open their regular season with seven straight at home, starting with Crown College Friday, Nov. 14. Tip off is set for 7 p.m. from BSU Gymnasium. 

Nestled in Northern Minnesota’s wooded region and located on the shore of Lake Bemidji, Bemidji State University sponsors 15 varsity athletic programs with NCAA Division I men’s and women’s hockey membership in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, while its 13 NCAA Division II programs hold membership in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
