I ran across this article on today on Bobcat commit Shawn Reid, by Greg Lee of The Spokesman-Review. If you are not fumialiar with Post Falls Idaho, it is located between Spokane Washington and Coeur d’Alene Idaho near the border of the two states, thus it’s major paper is actually located in Spokane.
The article is actually about two Post Fall basketball player who have committed to play D-1 ball. The second athlete though it appears from the article was recruited by Bobcat Women’s coach Tricia Binford also but it appears that it came down to Boise State and Hofstra.
Below is an except from the article and I also have provided a link to the full article.
Colleges land PF’s Loper, ReidGreg Lee
Post Falls basketball standouts Katelyn Loper and Shawn Reid are headed east to play in college next year.
Loper, a 5-foot-10 guard, is headed near the Big Apple and Reid, a 6-5 guard, is bound for Big Sky country. Loper has given Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., an oral commitment while Reid has accepted an offer from Montana State University. …
….Montana State was the first school to recruit Reid last year. Portland State and Colorado State were also recruiting him, but he found everything he wanted in his visit to Bozeman.
“I want to major in business and they have one of the top business programs in the nation,” Reid said. “They showed a lot of interest in me right away. They were sending me letters almost every day.”
Reid has grown more than an inch since last season. He wears a size 14 shoe and has been told that he could grow as tall as 6-10.
“They’re excited about getting him,” Post Falls coach Mike McLean said. “They think he can be their No. 1 guard.”
I think the 6’-10” might be a little bit of a stretch, but a 6-5 to 6-6 athletic shooting guard I think would fit the bill rather nicely.
