Grand Rapids, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Grand Rapids senior Austin Pohlen will play basketball next season for the UMD Bulldogs, he confirmed to the Northland's NewsCenter on Sunday.

Pohlen led the Thunderhawks to four straight MSHSL Class AAA state tournaments, and he was named this past season to the all-tournament team.

The future Bulldog also played football while at Grand Rapids, but said Sunday he intends to only play basketball once at UMD.

He was, however, one of six Northland football players to be selected to the Minnesota All-Star high school football game this upcoming summer.
