Griz recruit: Kyle Noreen

I thought I did something on this kid last summer but looking through my blog it does not appear that I have. If I am wrong consider this a pretty good update.

I have heard that the Montana basketball staff is recruiting Kyle Noreen from the Minnesota Transitions Charter high school MTC high school is a very small private school but unlike a lot of small prep schools I have written about recently this school is more known for it academics than basketball, with the one exception of producing D-1 basketball prospects whose last name is Noreen.

Kyle Noreen is a 6-5 junior wing for MTC high school, and will play the guard or small forward spot in college depending on which program he eventually signs with. His older brother Kevin is a 6-10 forward currently playing for Boston College, and is the current state of Minnesota all time scoring champion, and average well over 30 points a game his senior year. As a junior for MTC, Kyle is averaging 18.3 points, 8.5 rebounds, 8.6 assists, and 5.1 steals per game while shooting 54 percent from the floor this year.

Griz recruit: Austin Seferian-Jenkins

But I would not get your hopes up…

I have heard that the Griz have offered junior Austin Seferian-Jenkins of Gig Harbor Washington high school. Seferian-Jenkins is a 6-7 (maybe a little bigger) 250 pound post prospect, but I am guessing that he will be playing another sport in college.

The big fly in the ointment that may interfere with Wayne Tinkle’s hopes about getting him in a Griz uniform is the fact that, Seferian-Jenkins is ranked by some as the #1 tight end football prospect in the country, so that may influence his final decision as where he goes to school.

I do not have Austin Seferian-Jenkins full stats for the season, but I believe he is averaging about 16 points a game and close to double digits in rebounds. In his last Game in the State tourney he scored 30 points.

Future Bobcat update: Ausha Cole

Aush Cole is the far right

With my vacation of earlier this month I left a few things on the table. I will try to catch up on a few of them that I particularly enjoyed.

The East Valley Tribune (Phoenix, Arizona area newspaper) had a very nice article on the Gilbert highs school basketball team and its diminutive but very good girl’s basketball team. The Gilbert high school team features Montana State Bobcat signee 5-6 Ausha Cole as well as Weber State signee 5-5 Justine Johnson. Additionally 5-3 Whitney Southerland, is also expected to play basketball, possibly Yale, at the next level.

Here is what the Gilbert coach had to say about Cole in the article.

The leader on defense is Cole. She has signed a letter of intent to play at Montana State. Bunger says Cole is as good a defensive player as he has coached in 30 years. She can be physical with anyone she guards and has the quickness to match any opponent she faces.

“Every game I look forward to the matchup (defensively) I have,” Cole said. “I like the challenge of guarding the other team’s best player.”

It really is a pretty good article if you are looking for some information on a future Bobcat, but it also proves that you can be a State Championship contender even with your tallest player being under 5-8. You should check it out.

The Griz lose one to … Duke


Again normally I do not do stories on players who the Cat’s and Griz lose out to but as a Montana State and North Carolina fan, this one was real interesting to me, on a lot of levels. I thought I would pass it along.

A few months ago Southern Idaho junior college player, Carrick Felix’s top 3 schools were Idaho, Montana and Kent State. Felix was coming off a redshirt year for SIU, and was getting some D-1 attention, but mostly at the low-major level. Things have changed since then.

The list of schools Felix has been receiving attention from, since the beginning of the year includes Arizona State, West Virginia, Marquette, Clemson and ACC power Duke. Recently Duke offered Felix and he snatched up the offer.

Felix is a 6-6 small forward who is averaging 14.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.3 blocks a game that will have three years of D-1 eligibility starting next year.
