It’s not very often that two brothers from different universities are assigned as the official recruiting coaches of one of the nation’s most versatile players, but when it comes to Class of 2010 athlete Matt Miller, this is the case.
Miller, out of Helena (MT) Helena Capital, has offers to play college football from over 11 universities and two of the schools that have been showing him the most interest thus far are Colorado State and Arizona State.
The Lady Griz have received a commitment from Kalispell’s 5-4 Kelsey Hildal. Hildal is dynamo on the floor from the point guard position, averaging about 19 points a game. Her high game this season was a 39 point out burst against Missoula Big Sky. Hildal is the first Montana player this year to commit to the Griz and should be a great walk-on pick up for the Griz. With a little seasoning … i.e. a redshirt year and maybe a development year she should be able to give the Griz a nice change of pace option off the bench.
The Bobcats are recruiting a JC center from Ohlone Junior College in California named Alpha N’Diaye. N’Diaye is a 6-9 center who averaged 10 points, 8 rebound and 3 blocks a game while shooting 53% from the field and 58%from the line. N’Diaye is originally from Africa and has only been playing organized basketball for the past 3-4 years. He is a very athletic player, and with a 7-1 wing span would fit the bill for the new key word in college basketball as “plays long”. He earned second team all Northern Division in the California JC ranks, and is ranked by numerous web sites as a top California D-1 recruit. Ohlone JC finished the season with a 25-9 record and was ranked in the California JC top 20 most of the season.
I have fielded a handful of questions the last few months on Bobcat recruit Dominique O’Connor from Westchester high school in Los Angeles. My response as of late, has been, that I do not thing we have much of a chance and are probably not recruiting him any more. It sounds like I am only half right.
