One junior out of Wisconsin who is starting to gain more and more interest from college programs is Dylan Kuehl. Kuehl is a 6’5” guard/forward who attends Hustisford High School. College coaches started contacting him while playing with the Wisconsin Swing this past summer and his recruitment has grown ever since. 

The junior has already visited a few division two programs including Bemidji State, Northern Michigan, and Winona State. As well Minnesota State Moorhead has been in touch with him and he hopes to visit their campus soon. Kuehl had some early opinions about some of the schools recruiting him, “I like the traditions at Winona State with not only athletics but their school. I liked Northern Michigan’s facilities and their location. Bemidji State also had a nice program and set up of the campus. They all had strong schooling and athletic programs.”

When talking to Kuehl about what he is looking for in his future home, he had some specific things he has his eye out for. “I would want a good educational system that would help me get where I want to be in my far future.” The talented wing also mentioned some on the court aspects, “out of a basketball team I would want a good strong team with a brotherhood. Pushing each other always, having teammates backs.” On the other side of this, Kuehl stated “I am willing to work, push myself and improve all of my game to become a better player, team player, and a student,” on why a program should want him. 

Kuehl is a talented wing with a solid frame that has some good athleticism as well. He is at his best attacking the basket and is able to finish strong at the rim. On the other end, he is a tough on-ball defender who plays with good energy. When discussing his game and who he models his after, one NBA superstar came to mind for him; Giannis Antetokounmpo. “I do try and model my game like Giannis even though I don’t have the body type. I take some of his moves to get to the rim. I model his game because I get to the rim and shoot when I get good opportunities.”

While Kuehl admitted that Hustisford started the season to what he called “pretty rough,” they have since been able to turn things since. “We started working more as a team and we figured out our style of play and our roles on the team,” is what he contributed to how they have since been able to improve their season. Another key to the team’s success has been the stellar play of Kuehl himself. In a recent game, he scored a staggering 40 points versus Deerfield.
