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).
