The Griz have three seniors on their roster this year in Stephanie Stender, Sarah Ena and Jessa Lohman-Linford and a full 2010-11 roster which should give them three scholarships available this year if they choose to fill them.
Currently, the Lady Griz have one commit for 2011 in 5-8 point guard Haley Vining from CMR high school in Great Falls.
Despite the three scholarships I have heard that the Lady Griz may save one of this years scholarships so they can use it next year. The 2012 Montana girls prep class could be one of the best in a while. There is not a Jos Tinkle, their is her little sister, and 2-3 other players who could be Pac-10 caliber players.
The main target for the Lady Griz this year, I am hearing is 6-3 center Carli Rosenthal from Coeur D’Alene high school in Idaho. She is ranked by ESPN as the 48th best center in the country and a 65 overall ranking. Rosenthal stock has been rising steadily over the summer but some still question he speed and athleticism
If the lady Griz do not sign Rosenthal look for them to continue to look for a big center, of possibly even hold the scholarship.
