The three toughest Prospects


Well I have been following as best I can the future Bobcat and Grizzly basketball players as best I can this winter but there are three prospects out there who I have been having a heck of a time getting any info on the past 2-3 months. Two of them are pretty obvious for their locations. Emily Allen and Kate Webb the dynamic Aussie dual from Runaway Bay in Queensland Australia. The other is Casey Trujeque from Price high school in Los Angelis California. Here though is a little bit of what I do know.

The thing you have to remember about Allen and Webb and Australia. Given that it is actually summer down under and their school year ended sometime in November. Webb and Allen have already graduated from high school and are doing what ever high school graduate do while waiting for college to start … 8-10 months later.

I found a web page that indicates Allen, a 6-0 forward/guard is currently playing for the Queensland state U20 (under – 20 years old team). After two games Webb is averaging 6 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals a game in fewer than 20 minutes a game. This is not bad considering this is an all star team made up mostly of players 2-3 years older than Allen.

Sorry folks I have not been able to find any info on what Kate Webb is up to, although I do not believe she is playing for the Queensland U20 team, but I could be wrong.

Casey Trujeque is the plays for Price High (26 wins on 3 losses) school in Los Angelis California and as I have mentioned before has been rated as one of the top 10 teams in the state of California. Still though they get almost no local coverage from the newspapers. Most of the info that I have seen has come from ESPN, Rivals, and Maxprep when Price has played in a notable tournament here and there. University California signee’s Allen Crabbe (guard) and Richard Solomon (forward/center) are Price’s leading scorers and marquee players but Trujeque is third in scoring. I do not have anything close to his official stats but I believe Trujeque is averaging around 12 points a game and 6 or better assists a game. Here are some comments I have found on Trujeque

(Trujeque) has a lot of moxy and savvy for the point guard position. He has solid speed and quickness and he’s quite the shooter to boot. His shot is smooth out about 22 feet.

Price also got a solid performance from guard Casey Trujeque, as the 5-foot-7 senior scored 13 points and had 10 assists, consistently beating defenders in the lane to create easy scoring opportunities for Price’s frontcourt.

31 Casey Trujeque 5’7″ 2010
All around great point guard who is smart and knows how to run his team. Makes great decisions with the ball. Likes to attack and pass, is a 3 point threat, and has a very good pull up. Pushes the tempo of the game and is always under control. Trujeque signed early with Montana State.

The big knock on Trujeque is of course his height and how he will do against taller athletes, but these undersized guards have had pretty good success in the Big Sky.
