Josh Huestis no longer a sleeper


I had the opportunity to exchange a few emails with Eric Bossi of Scout.com. Mr Bossi is a recruiting analyst for Scout, Director of Scouting, EBOSS HOOPS and covers Stanford basketball. The subject of the night as you might guess by the title of this article was CMR’s Josh Huestis. Bossi was preparing an article for the Bootleg.com (Stanford’s Scout site.) Of the words of wisdom Mr. Bossi shared with me was that in his discussions with Josh he was under the impression that Josh would play this year in Montana. Based on what he saw of Josh this summer he thinks Josh is easily a top 100 player nationally. My favorite quote though was “(Huestis was) Easily one of the most interesting kids I spoke to all summer.”

In Eric Bossi’s article, that was just published, entitled “Sleeper no More” Bossi had the following quotes from Josh.

“My biggest strength is rebounding,” said Huestis. “I know the one thing that you can do every game is rebound. If your shot isn’t falling then you can always rebound, so I always like to do that…

…I see myself as a three/four,” said Huestis. “Primarily playing at the three but also able to play at the four too. Hopefully I’m still growing so I think I could be a big three. You know, somebody that can take bigger men off the dribble or take smaller guys to the post.”

Bossi also writes that Montana, Montana State, Washington State, Santa Clara and USC have offered and are the leaders right now with Stanford also recruiting him hard. I could not tell by the article if Stanford had offered yet, but it is rumored that they have.

I also got the feeling that Josh might wait until the spring to sign, but I am not sure. I will see what I can find out.

Here is a link to Eric Bossi’s article, but you will need a subscription to scout.com to read it.

    Yeah eric watched Josh game against toney mitchell whos rated top 15 i think..josh had 19pts and 12 or 13 rebounds against him as well as dunking on him. The scary thing about all of this is josh hasnt really been taught alot of things yet nor has he done constant individual drills to work on his game with a trainer other than this summer so hes pretty raw. He went from being a center and pf in montana to a sf/sg during the summer. Hopefully his highschool coach in montana will help him develop his sf skills during practice and games so he can be prepared for the next level and not just stick him under the basket which will stunt his growth as a college small foward on a high major college level
