I am going to look at the Griz men’s basketball recruiting for the spring 2011 regular period. The Griz signed two players last fall which gave them 14 scholarships if all the under class-men return next year. That is 1 scholarship over the 13 maximum allowed by the NCAA. This means that at least one scholarship under class-man will not be returning for next year, if they ended their recruiting with the fall class. If they sign another player this spring that will just mean that one player would have to leave. That is why it is not that surprising to see them not extremely active this winter with the 2011 class.
Still though just about every D-1 program losses at least one underclassmen player for one reason or another so the Griz have to keep their fingers in the 2011 class for insurance.
I have heard that Griz are active with the 2011 class but the names have been slim in coming. Hear are the two I have heard.
Michael Hale 5-9 point guard
North Idaho Junior College
The Bobcats are also recruiting Hale so follow this link, to what I wrote up about him a couple day’s ago.
Grizzly recruiting notes: The Griz have been recruiting Hale since his high school days in Washington. The Coaches know Hale very well. I have heard from multiple sources the Griz are involved with Hale this year and may have offered him. The latest new came about 3-4 days ago. I found his recruitment odd for the Griz, but his addition to the Griz team would give them a very tough, athletic scoring point guard who would compliment Will Cherry if they played them together.
