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).

ESPN College Basketball Recruiting listed Shannon at 6-8 and gave him “78” rating and had the following analyst of him on September 1 of this year.

Strengths:
Shannon has a thick frame with adequate length and he has good hands. He plays with purpose in mind and generally makes good decisions on the court. The left-hander can face-up his opponent and drain the jump shot with range to 17-feet. He runs hard in transition and attacks the rim-and he can catch the lob as well for the dunk. In addition, he rebounds fairly well in space.

Weaknesses:
Shannon is deceptively bouncy, but he doesn’t have quick feet nor is he a quick jumper. He has a decent frame, but it will be critical that he keeps his body tight and in shape because it has the propensity to add weight quickly. In terms of skill, he needs to continue to hone his face-up skills and fundamentals (up-fake, jab step) as well as add a go-to move in the paint area.

Bottom Line:
Shannon projects well to the Big Sky Conference or at that particular level. His skill set and approach to the game should garner some Division I interest.

I am not sure who his entire list of school recruiting was but as of late August of this year he held offers from Portland State and Air Force.
