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.
Eric Turner 6-10 C Northeast JC in Nebraska. A big surprise of the summer have a lot of programs scrambling to get involved with him He has a strong body and decent athleticism for a player of his size (6-10 230), has a reputation as a shot blocker. Currently Ball State, Western Illinois University, Eastern Illinois University, Montana State, Arkansas State and Central Michigan are all trying to get him on their campus’s for visits
Jal Rial 6-4 SG/SF St Cloud high school in Minnesota Has played the past few years in Bartlet Alaska but transferred to Minnesota over the summer. Played for a Minnesota AAU team this summer and opened some eyes. Very athletic and quick player decent shoot but is starting to scratch the surface of his potential. UC Riverside, Maine, Montana State, Chattanooga are currently showing an interest.
I believe the Bobcats are also recruiting the JC ranks pretty hard and info is tough to come by there, but keep your eyes on the Wyoming and Texas JC ranks.
