Bobcats get commit from Jamie Stewart


Will Holden of the Bozeman Chronicle is reporting that the Bobcats have received a commitment from Jamie Stewart of Henry Ford Junior College in Michigan. Stewart is a 6-4 shooting guard / small forward who prepped out of Livonia Clarenceville high school in the Detroit area. I believe he originally signed with the University of Detriot out of high school before he went the junior college route.

As a 6-2 senior at Livonia Clarenceville Stewart averaged 27 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists per game, and was a leading candidate for Michigan’s Mr. Basketball award.

Last year as a freshman at Henry ford JC Stewart averaged 15 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 assists while shooting 58% from the field, 32% three point range, and 70% from the free throw line. For his efforts Stewart was named All-MCCAA First Team, First Team Region Twelve, and third team All NJCAA National team for the 2009-10 season. Additionally he was named a NJCAA Division 2 Men’s Basketball Pre-Season All-American for the up coming season.

In high school Stewart was known primarily as a scorer, having put up multiple games of over thirty points. He could score the ball in multiple ways but was a little streaky out past the three point arc. He was rated as a two star prospect by both Rivals and Scout in 2009. In college he has improved his three points shooting quite a bit and has become a good defender also.

Stewart made his official visit to Montana State on September 17-18, and was the Bobcat coaching staffs primary JC target for this year. They were looking at a couple of other guards but they brought Stewart in first and waited for his answers. He should help soften the scoring loss in the front court next year when the Bobcats will lose Eric Rush and Danny Piepoli.

Stewart is a terrific scorer who can put up points in a hurry. He is also is a great athlete with a good set of springs under him. He will play both the shooting guard and small forward spot for the Bobcats and should give them a lot of options next year.

I have heard that Iowa State, Penn State, U of Detroit, Cleveland St., Loyola of Chicago, Eastern Michigan and Long Beach St were involved with him but I think this is just a partial list.
