High School Recruits
This class is the best freshman class that Montana State has recruited in recent memory going back at least 10 years. The three player (McCall, Salley, and Johnson) at the top of my (and most others) list are considered to be as good or better prospects as Bobby Howard was coming out of high school. While Reid and Trujeque are considered to be about a 1/2 step below those three it is only because they have a question associated with them. For Trujeque it is his height and Reid it is his aggressiveness. It would not be two out of the question that if in the end one or both these players turned out to out shined one of those top three.
Brumwell is the biggest question mark I have not seen him play. It is important for Huse to recruit Montana. If you listen to fans and boosters on Bobcatnation and else where it seems to be they also want to see a Montana Presence on the team. There plain has not been a lot of Montana prospects the last few years, but in Brumwell the coaches have found a lot of attributes that they feel can make a solid D-1 prospect. They were willing to take a chance with their 6th scholarship.
