Signing Day Preview: Bobcat Men

This Wednesday will be the start of the spring signing day which will go until mid May and I wanted to update on various rumors and as well as my opinion (guess) on what the four programs are doing and who they could sign during the late period.

The current trend that all four programs have been following the past 3-4 years is to primarily sign high school kids in the early period and JC transfers in the late period, and this year they look to no different.

Bobcat Men:

Signed in the Fall:

Blake Brumwell 6-7 240 Center – Big Sandy, MT
Chris McCall 6-4 175 Shooting Guard – Las Vegas, MT
Casey Trujeque 5-7 165 Point Guard – Los Angeles, CA
Shawn Reid 6-5 195 Forward / Guard– Post Falls, CA

Commits

Jordan Salley 6-7 230 – Forward /Center – Los Angeles, CA

Salley looks to be on board and ready to sign. Considering one of his social networking pages has the Bobcat logo plastered all over it, it looks like a pretty safe bet. His rehab for his knee injury last June seems to be coming around well, he is working out and should be ready to go by this summer.

Tre Johnson 6-7 215 – Combo Forward – Reno NV

Johnson seems to be on board to sign with the Bobcats. There 2-3 newspaper articles last week about his commit to MSU some with short interviews. Still I will feel better after Wednesday. Johnson was also recruited by Boise State and Santa Clara, these were the two schools involved in poaching former Bobcat commit Tre Nichols. I am still a little nervous.

Bobcat recruit: Ernest Watson

I have it from a couple sources that Brad Huse’s Montana State Bobcats are recruiting Ernest “Stretch” Watson from Trinity Valley junior College in Texas. There is actually a chance that the Grizzlies are also looking at Watson. The person who brought him to my attention specifically said that both Montana Schools were looking at Watson, but when I checked with another source who covers the Texas and Oklahoma JC he confirmed that Montana State was recruiting Watson but not Montana. My first source continues to insist that Montana State and Montana are recruiting Watson.

Ernest Watson is a 6-7 195 pound combo forward who originally hails from the Washington D.C. area. He is an extremely athletic, with long arms and what coaches like to say he has a very high basketball IQ. He tends to use his athleticism to out quick bigger power forwards and despite is slender frame can over power small forwards. He is one of those players who also have a knack for rebounding and getting. His shooting range extends out to three point arc.

Currently Watson is averaging. 12 points, 8 rebounds a game while shooting 60% from the field and 88% from the charity stripe. Juco Junction has him rated as the 131st junior college player in the country.
