I have been told that the Montana State men’s basketball program is recruiting Andrew Bendolph from Wheelersburg high school in Ohio. The junior Bendolph is a point guard prospect who I have seen listed any where from 5-10 to 6-0. He transferred to Wheelersburg this year after playing for Portsmouth high school, where he was a two year starter.
At Portsmouth Bendolph averaged 14 points a game as a freshman, and 16 points a game during his sophomore year. While Portsmouth and Wheelersburg play in the same conference, Wheelersburg is historically the better “basketball school” and has a couple D-1 prospects on its roster. I do not have the official stats for Wheelersburg but I am told that Bendolph is currently averaging 18 points a game.
I understand Bendolph is a very athletic point with good quickness (for the Big Sky level) with deep range. He is more of a scoring point than a pure point at this stage in his game.
Before the season started he was getting a lot of attention from Montana State and Georgia Southern as well as most of the D-2 schools in Ohio. He has had a very good junior year so far and his recruitment could take off a little bit after the season. At this point I do not believe he has any D-1 offers.
