As he finishes up his senior year, Reed Gunnink is narrowing down his list of potential colleges for next year. Over the course of the last couple of years, he has received interest from a variety of programs of multiple levels. Gunnink is a 6’4” shooting guard at Laconia High School and played with the Wisconsin Swing program. 

“I am looking for one that I have a great relationship with all of the coaches and players. I am also looking for a college that I know I am going to be happy at no matter what,” Gunnink stated on what he wants in his future school. 

The schools currently recruiting him the hardest that he is considering are Wisconsin-La Crosse, Wisconsin-Oshkosh, and Wisconsin-Platteville. Gunnink did receive scholarship offers from Minnesota-Crookston and Bryant & Stratton, however he is no longer considering either of them. While he felt Minnesota-Crookston was a great school in addition to liking their players, coaches, and campus a lot, but ultimately decided against it saying they do not have any of the majors he is interested in. 

This season Gunnink is putting up 17.6 points to go along with 8.4 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game to help Laconia on to a 14-8 record currently. Earlier this month, he achieved a major accomplishment by setting his high school’s all-time scoring record when he surpassed the 1,401-point mark. When talking about the feat, the senior stated “It is something that meant a lot to me, but getting it out of the way was a relief because I want to focus more on winning games than beating records.” With the Wisconsin state tournament quickly approaching, Gunnink thinks Laconia “can make a good run here at the end of the year and hopefully make it deep in the playoffs.” 

While Gunnink does not have a timeline on when he would like to pick his college, he said that it is something that he wants to make a decision on soon.
