A two-fer: Huestis / Filipek

mslacatlogoThe problem with doing an Odds and Ends column once a week is that it never fails that as soon as a publish one I get immediately come across tid bits of information that that are two short to warrant their own post, but often it is something I do not want to wait a whole week to share. That happened today twice, I have decided to combine two such tid bits into a two for one. You could also consider this to be “Odds and Ends” 8-31-09 part B”


  • Fullcourtpress.com today had an article on some of the top performers of the summer and what their recruitment is doing. In the long article they had the following blurb on Great Falls high’s Josh Huestis:

Five schools lead for 2009 summer revelation and stellar student 6’7” senior swingman Josh Huestis (CM Russell/Great Falls MT): Stanford, USC (will visit Labor Day weekend), Gonzaga, Harvard and Oregon State.

This has been the first time I have heard a list of Josh’s top 5 schools … if it is correct. In addition to a visit to USC it is reported that he will be taking an official visit to Harvard the following week (September 11-13).

If this list is correct there are a lot of Montana State and Montana fans that will be crying in their beer. That said I sure everyone in Montana will wish Josh the best where ever you go.

Full Court Press is a free site so you can read the entire post here.


  • There is a nice article by Ryan James of MinnesotaPreps.com (part of the Rivals.com network) on Bobcat recruit Taylor Filipek of Wilmar Minnesota. As it turns out it appears that Filipek is now a U. of Montana recruit now. Filipek had the following to say about his recruitment this fall:

“Right now the offers are from South Dakota, Eastern Kentucky, St. Cloud State, Southwest State, U of Mary, and MSU-Mankato,” Filipek said. “I have officials set up with South Dakota, Eastern Kentucky, and Minnesota State-Mankato. I took an unofficial to St Cloud State and South Dakota this summer. Montana State, Samford, and Montanahave been in touch a lot lately as well. I would like to make my decision and hopefully sign with someone this November.”

Taylor 6-6 combo forward averaged 16 points a game, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists a game last year for Wilmar high school, and from my understanding is a very similar player to Montana States Bobby Howard. He also plays wide receiver for the Wilmar football team and will need to work visits this fall around the football schedule.

The article on Filipek is a premium article but you can find it here.
