This is a look at Bobcat recruiting target Michael Hale of North Idaho JC. The Griz are also interested Hale and are recruiting pretty hard.
Michael Hale 5-9 Point guard
North Idaho JC
18 points 4 rebounds, 4 assist 2 steals 48% field goal, 36% 3pt field goal, 84% free-throw
Year of eligibility: 2 years
Recruiting Notes: Hale is from the state of Washington and the Bobcats have been tracking him for 3-4 years. He is originally committed to Eastern Washington out of high school but had to go the JC ranks. He is one of the more well known recruits in the North West. He has been listed at 5-7 to 5-9 and that has been a sticking point with his recruitment, but at NIC he has proven he can score and run a team at that level. A lot of schools are showing an interest in Hale including most of the Big Sky, but I have not any firm info on where he will end up, although Montana and Eastern Washington are the most often mention.
Player Summary: Despite his diminutive size Hale is renowned for his dunking skills which should give you an idea of his athleticism. He is a great assist man, but also shots the ball very well from range or in the lane. Shooting are actually on the low side of where he has shoot over the past 4 years.
