Griz recruit California JC Point Guard

I have heard that Wayne Tinkles Montana Staff is recruiting 5-7 point guard Steven Bennett of Citrus JC in California. Bennett averaged 11 points, 2 rebounds, and 4 assists for Citrus, and was a first-team all-stater, first-team all-conference player and runner-up to his team mate Troy Payne in conference MVP voting. Fresno State and several division two programs are also recruiting Bennett. Citrus College finished 28-5 this season after winning back-to-back Western State Conference Championships, and has a 63-6 record during Bennett’s two years at Citrus.

On a related note I had heard that the Griz were recruiting Citrus’s team-mate Justin Johnson, a 6-foot-2 combo guard this fall but they do not seem to be interested in him currently.

    I have not got any definitive info, but, the two names I have the most of over the last month are so are Micheal Taylor and Shawn Stockton. Stockton seems to be the one though that I am hearing the most of right now. If he does leave it will by his choice rather than Tinkle’s. But it is all rumor.

    Who might be leaving and thus be freeing up a scholarship?

    I have heard the Griz are more concerned about finding a guard who can provide add take care of the ball, and add some speed off the bench than getting a scorer, but your point is well taken there are definite risks involved with the “Spud Web” type guard.

    Wow! A dinky guard that scores 11 a game and 4 assists on a jc squad.
    Not my idea of good use of a scholly. I know big sky teams have had luck with these types but the defense of these runts are a big problem.
