Gauna to Michigan State

Alex Gauna, the 6'9 PF from Eaton Rapids, MI/High has verbally committed to the Michigan State Spartans. It has long been known that Michigan State was Gauna's dream school, and when offered he would accept. Gauna was offered this week and it didn't take him long to say yes. Gauna is a inside-outside threat, who has a very good shooting touch. Tom Izzo will definitely him up down low and make him a better rebounder, which in turn will make him a better player. I expect to see him do wonders as a Spartan. Gauna competes with the Michigan Mustangs grassroots program.
