Bobcats recruit Taylor Filipek


filip7The Bobcats are recruiting 6-6 Taylor Filipek of Willmar high school in Minnesota. Taylor is projected as a combo forward in college but played every position except center for Willmar this past season. Filipek started at point guard at the beginning of the season, but was eventually moved back to forward, despite being the best ball handler on his team. This move seemed to help Willmar hit its stride, by allowing them to take advantage of his inside presence.

Filipek is a very skilled smooth forward who can shoot the 3 ball or post up underneath. From the descriptions of him he sounds to me like a very similar player to Bobby Howard. He is a very unselfish player almost to a fault, and some wish he would be more aggressive. I believe Filipek averaged around 16 points 6 rebounds 3 assists a game this winter although I could not find any end of the season Numbers.

He is ranked in the top 10 D-1 prospects in Minnesota currently, and his stock is rising. So far this spring he has also been having a great AAU tournament season. This has drawn a fair amount of interest from quite a few northern mid-west teams.

Here is what  Ryan James of MinnesotaPreps.com had to say about Filipek recently


It seemed every time I looked over at the Comets Filipek was leaking outfilipek, catching, and attacking the rim for another dunk. The 6-foot-6 Filipek has a very impressive frame and guard skills that opens the eye of talent evaluators from different schools. Some look at his shot and wonder but at times yesterday Taylor was sinking his jumper. He also moves the ball intelligently for his team and at Willmar he played a lot of point this season.

A good athlete Filipek is an all State football player at the linebacker and wide receiver position as well as a Tennis player.

He is also recieveing interest from Butler, Iowa State, Wisconsin Green-Bay, Montana State, Northeastern, North Dakota State , and South Dakota State

    The Cats are recruiting Minnesota quite hard for 2010 also keep an eye on Tor Anderson a 6-4 guard from Minnesota. He has already taken an unofficial visit to MSU. I think this is Scott Carson’s influence here I believe has a lot of connections over there.
