Up to speed w/ Bobcat MBB recruiting


I thought I would try to get folks up to speed with what I know, guess, or speculate is going on with Montana State men’s basketball recruiting. Now as always I usually only bat about 50% with these things so everything should be taken with a grain of salt.

Of the four programs that I cover the Bobcat men program is the one program this year that seems to have the most going on.

The Bobcats should have only three scholarships available for the 2011-12 season when Bobby Howard, Eric Rush and Danny Piepoli finish out their eligibility in March. It would not surprise me if another scholarship opened up by next fall – it happens every year- with out know where that scholarship might come from it is hard to speculate on it.

The Bobcats have one solid 2011 commit from Danny Little from Skyview high school in Billings. They also are rumored to have a commit from 6-3 point guard Jordan Castaneda from Huntington Beach California, but I have not heard anything lately to confirm this. Additionally, recently it appears the Bobcats have received commits from a pair German players Johannes (JoJo) Kriegereit and Jermaine Julien Lippert, but at this point it is not know whether these guy’s will be part of the 2011 or 2012 recruiting class.

In looking over the 2011 and future rosters it appears the Bobcats are really heavy on big men and are going to need to fill a lot of future needs at the guard spots. That is matches what I am seeing. All of the prospective recruits I have heard about since this spring have been guards more specifically quick athletic guards in the 6-0 to 6-3 range all who can score the ball.

The Bobcats men could be all filled up for scholarships, and maybe over committed by one, from what I am hearing, or could have two scholarships still to be given out depending on how everything above works it way out. Look for the Bobcats to recruit strictly guards for the remaining of the year. Also keep an eye out for high school recruiting coming from the same schools as current Bobcat players are from.
