Recruiting: Bobcat progress report


We are about 4 weeks into the late recruiting period with about 2 week remaining I thought I would do update where the fourMontana based D-1 programs currently stand and what is left to finish out their recruiting.

Montana State Bobcat Men

The Bobcat men just finished up their 2010 recruiting with the signing 5-10 Rod Singleton out of Antelope Valley junior College. This gives the Bobcat men 8 new players for next season, five returning lettermen (including walk-on Brian Louff) and three redshirt freshmen ( 1 scholarship and 2 walk-ons) who could be on the roster next year. I am not sure though all the walk-ons will be back.

It is always tough being a walk-on for a D-1 club, you have to do all the same work and pay your way through school. Things tend to happen late and even over the summer as far as walk-ons deciding whether to they will return for another year, but this is what I am hearing. Steven Davis is looking like a real strong likely hood that he will return for his next year. Brain Louff I am hearing as of right now will most likely return, but I have to imagine he would be a very nice prize for a D-2 or NAIA club so I am keeping my eye on him. After injuring his knee last fall I suspecting Colt Idol might be inclined to return for another year at MSU to see how he could compete against the scholarship guy’s now that he is 100% healthy, but I am hearing some rumblings that Idol is getting a lot of interest and scholarship opportunities from some Frontier schools with Carroll College being the school I hear most often. I am not sure if he will return.

I believe the Bobcat coaching staff are talking with a few other kids both in-state and out of the state about walking on with the Bobcats, but I do not know of any confirmed commitments as of now.

Montana State Bobcat Women

The Bobcat women had one open scholarship at the start of the spring signing period , but added to more when returnee’s Beata Bak and Janette Jackson were dismissed from the team. So far they have not filled any of the open spots but I believe they are on the trail of a couple JC inside players. I think it will be important to sign at least one inside player to help fill the void of Bak and graduated senior Jamie Thorton. Jackson’s unexpected departure could be an opportunity for in coming freshman Emily Allen and sophomore to be Latisha Adams.

As I mentioned before I believe the Bobcat women are focusing a on 2-3 JC prospects as their first choice(s) to fill their open three scholarships. I think if there is also a chance they could sign a high school recruit but I think they are looking for a player who can come in and contribute immediately next year at the 4 or 5. Despite this all though I will be very surprised if they fill all of their scholarships, Binford signs only players that she really feel will fit her program and will not fill a spot for the sake of filling a spot. It should also be noted that in her tenure at MSU Binford has never filled all 15 scholarship in ant given year.

I do not know of any walk-on possibilities for the Bobcat women and I do not think Binford has even had a walk-on at MSU.
