Update on future Bobcat: Chris McCall

Chris McCall 6-4 Cheyenne high school Las Vegas Nevada

As I understand the story when the Bobcats started recruiting McCall they were not sure if they would really have a chance with him, but they had good relations with his AAU coach and the coaches seemed to have a nice connection. McCall showed an interest in Montana State so they invited him up to Bozeman last October. He tripped with Casey Trejuque who had already committed to the Bobcat 5-6 months earlier and the two hit it off, they really enjoyed playing together in some pick up ball, and they really liked Montana State. About 24 hours after returning home McCall committed to the Bobcats making the coaches extremely happy.

McCall was considered to be the jewel in a very strong Novemebr signing period. Talking to Huse in December he called McCall the best guard he has signed at MSU. He did have some qualifiers on that stament when pushed. There are a few player he has signed he considers wing/forwards as opposed to guards so it gets complicated understanding coach speak. In any event the coaches are very excited about McCalls potential in the Blue and Gold.

McCall started off the season on fire averaging 20+ points a game for the first half of the season. He cooled off some the second half of the season to finally average about 17 points, 3 assits 2 steals and 4 rebounds, while shooting 47% from the field 50% from beyond the three point line and 87% from the charity strip. I had heard from someone that he may sprained his foot in January but I can not confirm this.

Cheyenne has three players who have committed to college program already. Along with McCall , 6-7 Jaylen Henry (13 points 11 rebounds) to Eastern Washington and Paul Gentle to a D-2 school. Two – three other players may also end playing college ball.

McCall is a shooter / scorer he is deadly from 3 point range but can also drive shoot the mid range shoot or pass. By Big Sky standards he is a very athletic quick guard with a quick release and I am told has put another inch on his height and is a solid 6-4. He is a solid good ball handler having played at the point guard spot, but he is a shooting guard. Expect him to play the shooting guard primarily, but spend some time at the small forward early in his career and point guard some later in his career.

Things look very promising for him to contribute next year but I think fellow true freshman Shawn Reid to challenge him for minutes/redshirt status. I think McCall will have the edge but I would guess it will comes down to wants it more, by putting in the work this summer.

ESPN Evaluation

Chris McCall | SG

Position rank Shooting Guard # 276
Height 6’3″

ESPN Overall Rating 75
ESPN Shooting Guard Rank #276


March, 2010: McCall is a long, lean, smooth athletic guard. Chris has a quick release on his jump shot and is able to knock down the three point shot on a consistent basis. When shooting the mid range jump shot, Chris does a good job of creating space from his defender and getting good elevation on his shot. Chris needs to work on becoming a better passer when driving the basketball. Another area of Chris’s game that requires improvement is his intensity. Chris will have to add strength to his frame so he can take the physical play at the college level.
