Boschee announces two NLI signess during early-signing period

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- With the early-signing period ending today, Bemidji State University head men’s basketball coach Mike Boschee announced that two student-athletes have committed to the program. The Beavers’ 2018-19 recruit class features one guard and one forward.

Max Bjorklund and Cody Landwehr will enroll at Bemidji State next year and join the program beginning with the 2018-19 season. All signees are contingent upon admission to BSU and compliance with NCAA rules, including certification by the NCAA Eligibility Center.

“We are extremely excited to add these two players from Sauk Rapids-Rice High School and Orono High School,” Boschee said. “They will add a great deal of quality on and off the court for us for years to come. Both of their character and humility struck me right away as I got to know them. They are both mature beyond their years.”

Max Bjorklund, a 6-foot-1-inch guard from Orono, Minn., is a letter winner in basketball from Orono High School. He was named All-Wright County Conference First Team and Minnesota All-State Third Team as a junior. Bjorklund averaged 19.3 points, 3.2 assists and 1.6 steals per game while shooting over 50 percent from the field.

The son of Marc and Brigitte Bjorklund, Max is a B Honor Roll student at Orono High School. His father, Marc, was a two-time All-American basketball athlete at Crown College.

“Max is a versatile guard that can either play the point or shooting guard positions,” Boschee said. “He is athletic, quick and can score the ball.”

Cody Landwehr, a 6-6 forward from St. Cloud, Minn., is a five-year starter for Sauk Rapids-Rice High School. He was named All-Area and All-Central Lakes Conference while scoring his 1,000th career point as a junior. Landwehr was named Central Lakes Conference Player of the Week multiple times as a junior while averaging 18.5 points, 15 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game.

The son of Aaron and Heidi Landwehr, Cody is a member of the honor roll at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School. He is currently undecided on a major at BSU.

Bemidji State opens up the regular season at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10 at Wisconsin Dells, Wis., against Lindenwood University. The Beavers face the Lions before the second game of the weekend Saturday, Nov. 12 against University of Central Missouri.

"Cody is also versatile as a big who can go inside and out," Boschee said. "He is another addition who is athletic, strong and can shoot it."
