Update on future Bobcat: Kate Webb


This is the last of what I am calling the signed non-Montana recruits. Next up will be the out of state commits

Kate Webb 5-8 Runaway Bay, Queensland Australia

Kate Webb is the toughest and at the same time also the easiest of the these updates toughest because I have had a very hard time finding any info about what she has been up to since she signed with the Bobcats. The easiest because since I have not been able to find out a lot I do not have a lot to write.

I have to imagine that as the 2010 recruiting season started to gear up two of the Bobcat coaching staff goals were to establish Australia as a viable recruiting ground for MSU and to land a dynamic point guard that is so important in Big Sky play. As the Bobcats first commit last summer they accomplished to achieve both of those goals when Webb said she was going to be a Bobcat.

To the later goal, the Big Sky conference is a point guard league were the successful team need to have a dynamic point guard running the team, and with All-Conference point guard Erica Perry graduating this spring the point guard spot needed restocking. Webb fits the bill to a tee. Despite her young age Webb is a veteran point guard having played on local, regional, and national teams through Australia as well international. She is a very intelligent player, with great court vision and good defender. She does not have the speed of Perry but she has better 3 point shooter at the same point in Perry’s career. She is good enough shooter that Binford mentioned at her signing that she may see some times at the off-guard.

Webb was invited to play with along with fellow Bobcat recruit Emily Allen on the U-20 Queensland basketball team in the recent national championship but had to turn them down due to a nagging injury that she wanted, to get healed up.

I talked to Kelvin Taylor of Showtime basketball in Australia who runs a scouting/recruiting service there and he feels Kate will make an immediate impact on the Bobcat team as a true freshman. He points out two years ago as a 16 year old she had 14 points and 5 assists. This fall she will be two year older, and he finds it hard to imagine that she will not she will not be a solid contributor for the Bobcat program next fall. Freshman are an interesting lot and very hard to predict, but it does appear that Webb has a bright future a head of her in the Blue and Gold.
