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.

Belton has seen his stock rise considerably as he has hit the 6-9 range, but is still somewhat of unknown outside of the northwest. As of late last summer I heard he had offers from Wyoming and Lafayette with Rice, Washington State and Portland showing a lot of interest. I have been told he has picked up a few more offers since than including Montana State and possible Eastern Washington, but I have not been able to confirm.

This will be an interesting recruit. Belford is one of those typical 6-9 to 6-10 recruits who Montana State and Montana recruit for over an extended period of time , but see him snatched away when a WAC/MW/PAC12 swoops in late, dazzles the recruit as they look for an insurance big man. Typically the guy will sit on the bench 2-3 before transferring out, when they recruit over the top of him.
