Bobcat recruit: Adrian Jefferies

I have heard from a couple sources that the Bobcats men’s basketball coaches have invited Adrian Jefferies from Morgan Park high school in the Chicago Illinois area. Jefferies is a 6-5ish player who is projected to play the small forward and possibly guard in College. He seems to be growing still as I have seen him listed in most of the summer’s rosters at 6-5 or 6-6. As a junior he was listed pretty consistently at 6-4.

Last season he averaged just under 10 points and 10 rebounds a game as a part time starter for a team that featured 6-5 Wayne Blackshear (now playing for Louisville), 6-4 Billy Garrette (Depual commit & top 50 2013 recruit), 6-7 Jermaine Morgan (Colorado St. commit) as well as 6-8 Xzavier Taylor and 5-10 Markee Williams (both of whom are projected to be d-1 prospects in 2013).

Another Bobcat recruit: Jake Belford

I have heard from a couple sources that the Bobcats had a couple recruits in this past week end (September 16-17). One of them was Jake Belford of Battleground high school in the state of Washington. Belford is a 6-9 center forward who seems to have gone on a growth spurt as of ate. As a sophomore he was listed at 6-5, junior 6-7 and over the summer he has been consistently listed at 6-9.

Belford has range out to three point range but does not shy away from contact inside. With long arms, he is a pretty good passer and has a reputation as hard working “coachable” player. He was voted the top performer at the Washington State Elite camp this past summer.

More Potential Bobcat recruiting targets

I have a few more recruiting targets for the Bobcats this fall

Marcus Colbert 5-11 PG Cobert played two years with current Bobcat Shawn Reid at Post Falls high school in Idaho. Colbert’s father and head coach at Post Falls also has multiple connections with both the Griz and Bobcat programs/coaches. I believe he camped this summer for the Bobcats, but I am not sure, but he did tear it up at the Griz Elite camp this summer and was the best player I saw there (granted I only saw a a few games). It is said that the Griz offered Colbert at their camp.  Colbert is a very explosive play maker who can create his own shot or those of his team mates. Athletic and quick is most likely the leading candidate for the Idaho 5A player of the year. Averaged 16 ppg, 5.2 rpg and 4.9 apg last season. I believe the Bobcat coaches offered him this past Friday or Saturday. In addition to Montana State I have heard that San Jose State and Montana have offered Colbert at one point or another while Washington State Idaho and Baylor have been showing interest for quite some time.

Potential Bobcat recruiting targets

By request

Most of what I am posting I have posted on my twitter page over the past 4-6 weeks with and is an update on some rumored Bobcat recruit targets.

Ty Egbert 6-9 pf/C Lake Roosevelt high school in Washington. Is said to have offers from Boise State, Idaho, Nevada, and Washington State. Montana and Montana State. Has that elusive quality coaches love right now: length (meaning he has long arms and can play bigger than his height) better athlete than many expect and runs the floor well. Has official visits scheduled for Boise State, on Sept 23rd and Montana State for October 1st. Don’t be surprised if Montana schedules an official visit the day before or after his Montana State visit. ESPN rating 88

Sekou Wiggs 6-3 SG O’Dea high school in Washington state, athletic scorer. Cal Irvine, Cal Poly, Idaho, Portland St. and San Francisco have offered, UC Davis is trying to get him down for an official visit. I hear both Montana and Montana State have been recruiting and depending on who you talk to depends which school is more serious. I have been told he will take an official to “one of the Montana schools” but I am not sure which one. ESPN rating 88

Jalen Ward 5-10 PG O’Dea high school in Washington state, Another kid who helped his stock this summer. A pass first point guard but has deep range, athletic and fast. Sounds like a Casey Trujeque type player. His size (5-10 might be generous), or lack there-of is the major question mark on him. Montana St., Boise State, Washington St. and Cal St. Santa Barbara are all showing a lot of interest right now. MSU has been recruiting him the longest I am told.

Potential Griz recruiting targets

By request

Most of what I am posting I have posted on my twitter page over the past 4-6 weeks with and is an update on some rumored Griz recruit targets. The first player I thought should be of interest to you guys.

Matt Staudacher 6-0 PG Lake Washington high school in Washington, Yes I do believe he is the brother of former Griz, Ryan Staudacher. Has been gaining a lot of interest this summer and fall. He has proven over the summer he can play the point for a very talented AAU team and his stock has risen. Described as a “heady point guard with deep shot” Has interest from Denver, Idaho St., Montana, Penn, and Portland St, but I do not believe any offers yet. ESPN rating NA

Sekou Wiggs 6-3 SG O’Dea high school, athletic scorer. Cal Irvine, Cal Poly, Idaho, Portland St. and San Francisco have offered, UC Davis is trying to get him down for an official visit. I hear both Montana and Montana State have been recruiting and depending on who you talk to depends which school is more serious. I have been told he will take an official to “one of the Montana schools” but I am not sure which one. ESPN rating 88

Mitch Brewe 6-8 PF/C Seattle Prep high school in Washington, Big time scorer (23 ppg) and rebounder (just under 10) a good Seattle area team. A hustle guy but not overly athletic. Army, Montana, Drake, UC Santa Barbara have all offered and St Mary’s showing a lot of interest. ESPN rating 88
