Odds and Ends 8-17-09


Sorry I am a little late today but here we go.

  • Austin Brown, a 6-4 guard on the Bobcat men’s basketball team broke his wrist a few weeks back in a pick up game, and will be out of action until the first part of October. That should mean, though, that he should be ready to go by the time the official practice starts the middle of October. I have been told by a couple sources that if they gave out a most improved player in the off season Brown would have won it hands down. Brown is expected to push for major minutes this season.
  • Josh Huestis was once again featured in a Scout.com article this past week. Here are a few quotes from Josh from the article.

“It was definitely a different experience coming from Montana,” said Huestis. “The pace is a lot quicker and the athleticism is different. You see crazy athletes every day.”huestis5

“On defense, I take a lot of pride in my defense,” said Huestis. “I try to make sure that I always keep my man in front of me. I try to block shots and contest shots.”

“(Academics) will be a big factor,” said the 4.0 student. “I can play basketball for only so long and I’ve got to have something to fall back on if that doesn’t work out for me. Academics are huge for me. “

It appears Montana, Montana State, Santa Clara USC and Stanford have offered (possibly more) while Arizona State, Washington State, Marquette among others are showing a lot of interest.

  • On another Josh Huestis note: West Coast Hoops Reports came out with a list of their top 50 West Coast players. Huestis is on the list. They do not give any definitive number rankings associated with each player, but it appears the names are listed in order. If so they have Josh as the #42nd player on the west coast.
  • Former Bobcat Quarterback (for a total of 3-4 weeks) Darius Bell seems to be generating some interest this fall. Recently San Jose State was the first school to extend an offer to Bell, though a handful of other schools are showing an interest. Bell sat out last year after transferring to City College of San Francisco junior college. This coming year will be his freshman year eligibility wise. If he should move on to a 4 year school after this year he will have 3 years of eligibility.
  • Jack Perkins linebacker prospect from Juneau Douglas, and a Montana State recruit recently mentioned that West Point is his favorite at this junction of his recruiting, but he also mentioned that Montana State and Southern Illinois Idaho, Missouri, and Oregon are all in the picture right now. Perkins has no offers year but is hoping that they will come once the football season starts. It was also mentioned that he visited the Montana State campus this summer.
  • Former Grizzly corner back Lyle Brown has earned a scholarship for this coming season at Arizona University. Brown who was originally set to walk-on U of A performed well enough in the opening of summer practice that he was awarded the scholarship. Brown player the 2007 season with the Griz before transferring to Glendale Community College in Arizona last year.
  • With the Lady Griz filling all of their scholarships in the last 10 or so day’s I have been also hearing that the Bobcat Women may have received some commits lately. I am trying to confirm and see if I can get some names.

    former qb “Darius Bell” currently starting qb for ccsf (san francisco city college) and are
    7-0. Last I looked, in 7 games rushed for over 800 yards (10 touchdown) and pass for over 1600 yards (15 in the air).
    That’s pretty impressive.
