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.
Unless I have forgotten about someone else this brings the total number of walk-ons to the Bobcat program to 6. Here is a list as I under stand it.
Andrew Costello FR 6-8 Houston TX
Danny Desin FR 6-3 Billings MT
Jeremiah Tardy FR 6-3 San Bernardino CA
Mitchel Schwab FR 6-4 Afton WY
Steven Davis SO 6-7 Billings MT
Patrick Webb JR 6-7 Bozeman MT
While the walk-on route is always a tough road to take to get to the D-1 level last September current Bobcat Tor Anderson walked-on and eventually earned himself a scholarship.
