Eighth Grader Ian Theisen Gets Early Looks
Theisen, who attended the recent Minnesota-Michigan State game, is expected to play for Minnesota Pump N Run 15-and-under team. Theisen is starting to get some recruiting attention, despite his young age

Theisen made his first unofficial visit to the Gopher-Buckeye game last month.
"This is my first one that I was actually invited to. It was really fun. You can't get any better than this. Second row down, mid-court."

"It is still to probably win the conference. Maybe the championship game of the sections and go onto the state tournament. I would still think. Everyone still has the same expectation, too."
Theisen has had some ups and downs as an eighth grader. He had a season-high eight points against Sartell-St. Stephen, but has had four games that he went scoreless.
"It is still a growing experience. It is fun, though. I still get maybe nine minutes a game. I learn a lot from other guys giving me pointers. It has been really good for me."
