July Evaluation Period: Grizzly Men

JOHNGREENThis is the second in a series of four posts, looking at what positions the Montana State men’s, Montana State women’s, the Montana men’s as well as the Lady Griz basketball programs may be looking to evaluate and ultimately fill roster spots next year.

You have to imagine, though, if Wyoming starts showing an interest they may jump to the front of his list.
