Griz Pick up their 3rd commit



I have heard that Wayne Tinkle’s Montana Grizzlies have received a verbal commitment from Billy Reader of Oswego Lake high school in Oregon. Reader is a 6-8 who can play the center spot but who is also athletic enough to play the power forward spot. Most of the schools who were recruiting him were projecting him as a power forward. He is still growing so he may top out at 6-9 to 6-10 range.

Lake Oswego has been somewhat of a big man factory placing at least one big man (sometimes more) in the D-1 ranks each year for the last 4-5 years including a guy by the name of Kevin Love to UCLA now the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Reader averaged 9 points and 6 rebounds last year while playing with current Portland State freshman 6-7 Max Jacobson. Reader projected to be the Man this year for Oswego. You can find more info about Reader in this post I did earlier “Bobcats and Griz entertain Billy Reader”

I am told Reader’s choose the Montana over an offer from Montana State. He also took an official visit to Portland State, and Seattle was making a late run at him.
