Update: Josh Huestis

huestis3Thought I would do another update on Mr. Huestis, from both internet reports and rumors I have been hearing.

I have been getting a lot of traffic the last 5 or so days from a lot of .edu domain names, like maryland.edu, rice.edu , peperdine.edu, houston.edu etc, etc … all seemingly with a keen interest in posts on Huestis.

To answer a couple questions I have been fielding a lot.

Do (Montana / Montana State) still have a chance?

I don’t know. I believe both schools are still recruiting him, and made a point of having coaches at his games this week. I have been told by a very good source that he is wide open and has not eliminated any schools.

Who among the Montana schools has the edge?

The Montana State alum in me would like to think the Engineering program, and the fact he is a legacy, would give MSU the edge, but to be honest I really have no idea. To be honest I do not think even Tinkle or Huse have a good feel for it either.

I did have a chance to talk to someone in California yesterday, and he did confirm he thought Josh had a very good start to the evaluation period, and has caught the attention of quite a few D-1 coaches. The couple questions/comments that came up are. Can he do it again and how tall is he? Josh burst on to the scene with a top 5-10 player’s performance at the Pangos Sweet 16 tourney, now coaches are watching to see if it was a fluke or the real deal. The other question buzzing around is he 6-6, 6-7 or 6-8. All three heights were bantered around at Pangos and coaches are wanted to get a better feel for this.

Here is the last evaluation I saw from the Pangos’s Sweet 16

Josh Huestis, 6-8, PF, 2010, Findlay Prep (NV), Belmont Shore. The other half of Belmont’s twin towers. Averaged 9.5 points and 11.5 rebounds in the two games, and also had 5 blocked shots. Exceptional leaper more of a defense-and-rebound guy than Okonji.

Here is a little blurb as well as Josh’s stat line from Fullcourt Press All-West Top 30 Camp he participated in yesterday I believe

Pe’Shon Howard (Oak Hill) and Josh Huestis (Findlay Prep) each had 11 points; Huestis also grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds for the double-double. Dominique Carr (JW North), Charles Standifer (Bridgeton Academy ME) and Godwin Okonji (Findlay Prep) each had 10 points for the winning side.

248-Josh Huestis (Findlay Prep-Las Vegas NV), F – 5/10 fg, 0/2 ft, 13 reb, 1 ast, 1 blk, 3 stl, 2 pf, 11 pts
3 turnovers

The first half of July Evaluation period ends today (July 15th) but kicks back up on the 22nd and lasts until the 31st.

    Your site must be creeping up on the radars of a lot of recruiters across the country. Watch out — you just might become the Mel Kiper of Montana!
