Josh Huestis gets an ESPN rating


huestis2

Great Fall’s CMR high school basketball star Josh Huestis has gotten some upgrade love from the a couple national recruiting sites. The major one was from ESPN’s basketball recruiting site. They recently have ranked Josh as the # 39th power forward in the country, and have given him an overall rating of 90. Here is what the ESPN rankings mean.

90-100: Immediate Impact Prospect – Player demonstrates rare abilities and has the potential to start as a freshman for a national, top-25 program.

80-89: High Major Prospect -Player has the potential to start or significantly contribute as a freshman for most top national Division I programs.

70-79: Major/Mid-Major Prospect – Player either can earn a scholarship to a top national Division I program or contribute significantly as a freshman at the mid-major level.

60-69: Low Division I/Mid-Major Prospect – Player has the ability to earn a scholarship to a mid-major or low Division I program.

50-59: Prospect – Player has some redeeming qualities but is not projected to contribute at the Division I level.

45: Pending Prospect w/ film – Scouts Inc. has received film of the prospect and an evaluation is pending.

40: Pending Prospect – Player evaluation is pending receipt of film.

Here is ESPN’s Evaluation

Evaluation

August, 2009: Huestis (originally from Montana) exploded onto the summer scene with his production at various tournaments and camps. This summer he opened many coaches’ eyes with his impressive frame (long arms and overall great length) and athleticism. Although he has some solid physical qualities, he is somewhat of a ‘tweener at this stage. He possesses a wing-type frame, but his skills are more applicable for the power forward position. He is very active around the rim and he has a soft shooting touch out to the stripe. In addition, he handles the ball well in transition and is able to slash his way to the rim. Huestis plays with purpose in mind and has a fair amount of savvy for this game, if he can extend his shooting touch and polish his ball handling (while being pressured) he should be a solid mid-major recruit.

Notes

2009 Gatorade Player of the Year in Montana…Averaged 16.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 5.0 blocks as a junior…Reportedly headed to Findlay (Nev.) Prep…

Additionally Westcoasthoopsreports.com has upgraded their rating from a no star to a 4 (out of a possible 5) star ranking. Scout.com, who incidentally provides most of the recruiting info for ESPN and Rivals.com, has not updated their Huestis info in close to a year.

    Josh will be playing for CMR and lead them to another title and hopefully a undefeated season

    Well this settles it. We will not be seeing Josh suit up for the Griz or Bobcats. I really hope that the rumors of him going to Finley Prep turn out to be false.
