Recruiting: Where are the Bobcats at?

Montana State Bobcats

… and when I say Bobcats I am talking Montana State’s men’s and women’s

With the early signing period starting on November 11 and last through the 18th I thought I would take a look at where the Bobcat programs currently stand as I know it. It is very possible that there are a commit or two that I do not know about.

I think it has been a very productive fall for all two programs and for the most part they have filled most of their projected open scholarship. When I say, projected scholarships, I am talking about the number of seniors on the team plus open scholarships. It highly like that there will be at least one scholarship that may open up on a team due to underclassmen deciding to leave.

Montana State Menreid

Projected open Scholarships – 5

Commits – 4
PG – Casey Trujeque 5-10 Price high school, California
SG – Chris McCall 6-3 Cheyenne high school, Nevada
SF – Shawn Reid 6-5 Post Falls high school Idaho (on the right)
C – Blake Brumwell 6-8 Big Sandy high school, Montana

What are they looking for to complete their class – I believe with one scholarship still available Brad Huse will be looking for a power forward, and more specific I think a player who is athletic and can defend quicker power forward. I believe the Cats are primarily looking high school kid (I do not know of any JC’s) but Huse could take the right JC if he found the right one.

Notes: If Montana State signs a power forward that will give them a class that includes each position on the floor. Since Huse became the men’s head coach he has preached about balancing out the classes and it appears that he is finally getting close.

Projected open Scholarships – 4

Commits – 3
PG – Ausha Cole 5-6 Gilbert high school, Arizona
PG – Kate Webb 5-8 Runaway Bay, Queensland Australia
SF – Emily Allen 6-0 Runaway Bay, Queensland Australia (on the right)

What are they looking for to complete their class: With 15 scholarships available to the women’s’ programs they really have the luxury of going with the best player available. Still though having signed two points this year and another out standing point last year they are most likely set there. They also look pretty solid at the wing (shooting guard / small forward). I would expect that Binford and her coaches might be leaning toward a big girl with their last scholarship but I do not think it will be written in stone. I would not expect Binford to look at a JC.

Notes: Binford likes players who play more than one spot and can run the floor, so even if she sign’s a center look for that player to be a 6-1 to 6-2 women who can run the court and shoot. I really think she would love to get another 6-1 Nubia Garcia in the program (boy that is really going out on a limb).
