The Bobcat men appear to be hitting the JC Ranks pretty heavily this winter looking for player to sign this spring. It is not exclusively JC player, but of the high school players they are looking at are they are the type that could come in and contribute right away. They also seem to be looking at primarily guards who can score but again there are a few post guys I have heard about.
The Bobcats signed two players in the spring, and have 3 seniors on the roster this year which would leave you to believe that they have one scholarship to offer, but as I have said before a team always seems to loose one or two additional player(s) each spring, so I expect them to sign at least two players this spring. Here are the guys who I have heard rumors that they are looking at.
Davion Pearson 5-11 Combo Guard
Arizona College Prep
16 points, 6 assist, 5 rebounds a game
Year of eligibility: 4 years + redshirt
Recruiting Notes:Pearson is a guy to seriously keep an eye on. The Bobcats have been recruiting him for 3 or so years. Originally last spring he committed to Santa Clara over the Bobcats, but ran into an SAT/ACT problem. He then had a falling out with Santa Clara. Rumor has it Coach Huse and Starr found a spot for him at Az. Col Prep this fall, to work on his test scores. He recently got qualifying SAT score and will an eligible to play as a true freshman next fall.
He is very to Coach Starr and a close friend of Bobcat freshman Chris McCall and played AAU ball with Tre Johnson (and McCall). While his recruitment was slow this fall the past few months it has really taken off with some Mid Majors on board hoping to get him on their campus.
Player Summary: Last year when I did a write up on him on my blog, he was primarily known as point guard who ran the show first and shot second, but at AZ Prep he has become a potent offensive threat for the team. I have heard some people compare his to that of Eastern Washington’s Glenn Dean but a better passer. His stats are listed above, but keep this in mind those were against Arizona JC teams as well as some of the bigger Prep schools in the west.
Colleges Interested: MSU, Western Kentucky, Oklahoma
