Ryan McIntyre is a Bobcat

Sorry best picture I could find

This week Ryan McIntyre of East Valley high school in Spokane Washington has officially joined the Montana State Basketball program. McIntyre is a 6-2 combo guard who has decided to join Tor Anderson and Steven Davis as the Bobcats walk-on this year.

McIntyre averaged 13 point a game for East Valley. He has very good range and averaged 2.3 three point shots made and had a high of 5 three pointer in two games. He played his junior year for University high school in Spokane and averaged 8 points.

He has good ball skills and could play some at the point but I see him more as a shooting guard early in his career and a point later on.

Taylor Farnsworth is a Grizzly

It looks like Bob Meseroll at the Missoulain scooped me on this one but I have a little more information on the Grizzlies latest addition.

I have heard that the Montana Grizzly basketball program has pickup the services of Taylor Farnsworth of Mead high school in Spokane Washington. Farnsworth is a 6-7 (although I have seen him listed any where from 6-6 to 6-8) post who was a key member of Meads run to qualify for the state tournament this year. Mead finished with a 22-7 record and finished 7th in the State 4A Tourney.

Farnsworth has walked on to the University program this fall.

Griz recruit: Stuart Wesonga

I have heard that Wayne Tinkle and his Grizzly basketball coaching staff are recruiting Stuart Wesonga of San Marin High School in San Marin, California. Wesonga is a power forward, and is the only big man prospect that I have heard solid information on that the Grizzly were recruiting. The source who tipped me to Wesonga told me he was in the 2012 recruiting class (junior to be) but in doing my research most sources identify him as a member of the 2011 (senior to be) class.

Wesonga compiled some pretty impressive stats last year averaging 23 points, 7 blocks, and 15 rebounds while shooting 60 % from the field and 61% free throw line as a senior and 15 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 blocks. He was named First team all North Bay conference both his sophomore and junior years.

I have heard that some scouts/coaches questioned his stats and wondered how he would do against better competition. He answered a lot of critics this July playing with a number of AAU teams he had a number of great games including a 30 point effort, playing along side Kentucky commit Kyle Wiltjer.

The person who gave me the tip, compared him to former Bobcat Divaldo Mbunga, a better athlete but, a little shorter (but still growing). He is also considered to rather raw as a player, but with his outstanding athleticism he has a huge upside.

Griz recruit: Miles Chamberlain

I have the name of another Wisconsin basketball recruit, which appears to be getting a fair amount of attention from the Grizzly men’s basketball program. The name of the recruit is Miles Chamberlain from Madison Memorial high school in Madison, Wisconsin. Madison was ranked as one of the top 25 basketball teams in the nation by most of the nation rankings for most of the season last year, and is expected to one of the top teams next year depending on who on their teams transfers this year.

Chamberlain is a 6-4 basketball player who has played every where from point guard to the post for Memorial. For his sophomore season he played mostly in the post, but last year he played mainly the point and shooting guard spots. For his senior season he is expected to play more at the small and power forward spot for Memorial. For his Wisconsin Starz AAU team he plays mainly the shooting guard and small forward spot and that is where he is expected to play in college.

I have not been able to dig up his junior season stats from memorial, but The Wisconsin Sports Network has him ranked as the number 37th college prospect in the country.

Bobcat recruit: Davante Adams

I have heard that Davante Adams of Palo Alto high school in Palo Alto, California is receiving recruiting interest from both Rob Ash’s Bobcat football programs and Brad Huse’s basketball program. It appears that the Football program might be showing the most interest currently but the basketball program has been in contact with the two sport athlete.

On the football field the 6-3 athlete played both the wide receiver and free safety spots for Palo Alto team. He is projected to play wide receiver in college.

Adams compiled 488 receiving yards last year with 9 touch downs. For his efforts he was named first team All-SCVAL De Anza Division at the wide receiver spot. In other football related stats Adams runs a 4.4 seconds 40-yard dash, a bench press of 240 pounds, a squat 350 pounds, and a vertical leap of 41 inches.

In basketball Adams averaged 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists a game last season for Palo Alto team. He was named second team All-SCVAL De Anza Division for his efforts.

Here is an evaluation I found on Adams

The Aussies have landed for Binford’s Bobcats

The Bobcat women’s basketball team welcomed Aussies Kate Webb and Emily Allen into the Bobcat fold this summer as they came over for summer school. I found this video on the Bobcat women’s YouTube page and got a kick out of it. I believe it was shot as the Women’s basketball team was shooting some promotional (and season poster I believe) material for the 2010-11 season.

Webb and Allen have to love the care and attention their teams showed them as they attempted to help them with their English! You have to really appreciate the love and thoughtfulness of teammates that are willing to show their new additions from across the pacific.

Griz recruit: Mitchell Farr

I have heard that the Grizzly coaching staff is recruiting Mitchell Farr of (Racine) Case high school in Racine, Wisconsin. Mitchell is Milwaukee Running Rebels AAU teammate with fellow Griz recruit Haki Stampley, and is primarily being recruited by current (as I write this) Grizzly assistant coach Eddie Owens.
Farr is a 6-2 shooting guard prospect who averaged 16 point, 5 rebounds and 4 assets a game last year for Case high school. Farrs is an outstanding three point shooter, with 57 of his 64 made field goals, last season, came from three point range.

Farr is projected as a shooting guard prospect in college but many feel he may be able to make the transition to the point guard spot on the right team.

Farr is an interesting prospect in the fact that his ratings are all over the board. Rivals.com rates him as a “no star” prospect while Scout.com rates him as a 2 star prospect. Wisconsin Sports network rated him as the #38 prospect in the state pre-summer but he is expected to rise to a top 10 or 20 prospect when pre season raking come out. ESPN gave him a very respectable 88 rating and labeled him as the #65 shooting guard prospect in the country.
