Ryan Shannon Commits to the Bobcats

Ryan Shannon (red & white uni) Blocks a shot

Brad Huse and his Bobcat assistant coaches received a commitment from Ryan Shannon from Mountlake Terrace high school in the state of Washington. Shannon played his freshman thru junior season for Marysville-Pilchuck High School before transferring to Mountlake Terrace over the summer.

Shannon is a 6-7 220 pound, power forward who brings a nice skill set to the Bobcat program. He is one of those slow bloomers who has been growing a few inches each year in high school and as a result has pretty nice ball skills and a jumper out to about 17 feet. He lists himself at 6-7 but some other AAU material that I have seen from the summer lists him at 6-8. I am guessing that by the time he is wearing a Bobcat Uniform he will be listed in the program at 6-8.

As a sophomore Shannon averaged 13 points, 11 rebounds, 4 block shots and 3 assists a game as a 6-4 combo forward, and was named second team All WesCo player. Last year for Marysville-Pilchuck the 6-6 Shannon averaged 16 points, 11 rebounds, 4 blocks and 4 assists from the power forward and center spots (I understand they had a 6-11 guy on their roster). For his efforts he was named first team All WesCo. Incidentally he also earned First Team All WesCo in track (high jump).

Huse adds Andrew Costello to Bobcat Basketball

OK so just when I thought I had all of the Montana State walk-ons down, I get another one.

I have been told that the Bobcats have another freshman walk-on who is practicing and playing with the team this season and that is Andrew Costello from HCYA North high school in Houston Texas. HCYA as it more commonly referred plays in the private high school league in the Houston area. It was ranked the number 1 high school in its league for almost the entire season.

Costello is a 6-8 forward, although he did play some at center this year especially defense against the better big men they played. I have seen him listed at up to 6-10 in a few places but I am going to bet he is closer to 6-8. It sounds like he is in the mold of current Bobcat Jeff Budnich, as he is a very good jump shooter out past three point range. I could not find a lot of info on Costello but it appears he averaged 10 points and 7 rebounds a game. I have seen him listed as a small forward and power forward but not a center.

Jeremiah Tardy walks on this year

It looks like I missed on this one, even though it was announced last June in quite a few local San Bernardino news papers.

Last June the Bobcat picked up a walk-on commitment for the 2011-12 school year from a very nice looking prospect form California.JeremiahTardyenrolled at MSU this quarter and is currently practicing with the Bobcat basketball team.Tardyis a 6-3 combo guard who played for the San Bernardino high school last season.

Tardyaveraged 14 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals a game while playing primarily the point guard spot but did play also spend time at the shooting guard and small forward spot for San Bernardino. He had 7 games where he recorded double digit in assist and scored over 20 points 5 times. For his efforts he was named first team in both All-San Adreas league and CIF-Southern Section’s Division 2A.
