Bobcats to sign Christian Moon

I have heard that Montana State head coach Brad Huse has landed his fifth JC recruit of the this week end when Christian Moon of Henry Ford CC college committed to the Bobcats after an official visit this weekend.Moon has played the past two seasons with Bobcat fall signee Jamie Stewart, and I think this connection played a big part in his committing to the Bobcat program. While Moon does not quite come with the post season awards that the other three JC guards in the 2011 recruiting class, he does have very impressive distinction that made the Bobcat coaching staff very interested in him.Moon lead the NJCAA in three point shooting with a remarkable 52% (52 of 99 shots) from beyond the three point arc.

Moon is a 6-2 shooting guard who averaged 14 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assist, 2 steals, 54% fg (on a total 259 shot attempts) and 74% FT. While Moon is a prolific and deep three point shooter he not a one dimensional player that many three point specialist in the Big Sky are. He uses his deep range to set up his mid range game, and is athletic enough that he is a very good rebounder from the guard spot.

Moon also held offers from Idaho State and Southern Utah.

Montana State signs Xavier Johnson-Blount

I have heard from Brett Swanson at Jucojunction.com that Brad Huse and his coaching staff have signed their first recruit (that I know of) of the spring signing period, and their second JC All American for 2011. The newest Bobcat is Xavier Johnson-Blount from Cochise Junior College in Arizona. Johnson-Bount played his high school ball at First Colonial high school in Norfolk Virginia. Cochise plays in the same conference that produced former Bobcat starting guard Will Bynum a few years back.

This past year at Cochise JC, Johnson-Blount averaged 22 points, and 5 rebounds while shooting 45% from the field, 39% from 3 point range, and 68% from the free-throw line. For his efforts he was named first team all conference, First team All Region 1 as well as All American. Cochise finished the season with a 22 wins on 11 loses. They won the region 1 tourney and championship but were eliminated at the district tourney by eventual NJCAA D1 champion Southern Idaho. Three of their 4 sophomore players have or are expected sign with D-1 school, and the forth with possibly a D-2/Naia school.

In high school Johnson-Blount averaged 24 points, 7 rebounds 2 assists, 2 steals while shooting 49% from the field, 32% from three point range and 68% from the free-throw line.

Griz MBB Spring 2011 Recruiting


I am going to look at the Griz men’s basketball recruiting for the spring 2011 regular period. The Griz signed two players last fall which gave them 14 scholarships if all the under class-men return next year. That is 1 scholarship over the 13 maximum allowed by the NCAA. This means that at least one scholarship under class-man will not be returning for next year, if they ended their recruiting with the fall class. If they sign another player this spring that will just mean that one player would have to leave. That is why it is not that surprising to see them not extremely active this winter with the 2011 class.

Still though just about every D-1 program losses at least one underclassmen player for one reason or another so the Griz have to keep their fingers in the 2011 class for insurance.

I have heard that Griz are active with the 2011 class but the names have been slim in coming. Hear are the two I have heard.

Bobcat MBB Spring 2011 Jarrell Crayton

Here is the second prospect from Sheridan JC that the Bobcats have shown an interest in this fall.  Sheridan should – grades willing- put 4 player off this years team in D-1 ball by next fall, and have been ranked in the top 25 most of the season.

Jarrell Crayton 6-7 power forward
Sheridan JC WY
15 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals, 61% field goal, 32% 3pt field goal, 68% free-throw
Years of eligibility: 2 years

Recruiting Notes: Crayton had plenty of D-1 interest out of high school but had to go the JC route and enrolled at Sheridan. I have heard that the Bobcat coaching staff has expressed an interest him but I am not sure if the are actively recruiting him or offered him. He is currently getting a fair amount of D-1 interest right now with Fresno St, Oral Roberts, South Dakota State, Boise State, Idaho, and Ohio considered to be the favorites.

Bobcat MBB Spring 2011 Victor Bermudez

 

Final high school recruit for now.

Victor Bermudez 6-3 shooting guard
University Park Academy Prep Houston Texas
Years of eligibility: years

Recruiting Notes: Bermudez is another interesting case. He played his senior year of basketball in 2009-10 with Chris McCall at Cheyenne high school in Nevada. He did not get a lot of D-1 interest so he went to a prep school in Houston Texas, with a fellow Cheyenne teammate. Bermudez has finished at U. Park Academy and is d-1 eligible. Since October he has telling people and posting on Twitter that he intends on playing D-1 ball at Montana State with McCall and Davion Pearson.

Player Summary: Bermudez is a very athletic smooth player who is a very good shooter especially in transition game. He can pull up on the run and hit the three point or mid range shot on a dime, or take it to the whole. Scouts love his length and size and he is projected to be a very good defender at the D-1 level.

Bobcat MBB Spring 2011 Matt Glover


I am now going to go over the recruits that we are looking at from Sheridan Junior College in Wyoming. There are two prospects that I have heard the Bobcats are looking at for the 2011 spring recruiting class, and then there are 2-3 other player who may or may-not have been placed there by the Bobcat staff, who will not be eligible until 2012.

Matt Glover 6-4 shooting guard/ small forward
Sheridan JC WY
13 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assist, 1 steal, 39% field goal, 30% 3pt field goal 71% free-throw
Years of eligibility: 3 years

Recruiting Notes: Glover was a highly recruited high school senior last year who transcripts were all messed up. It was clear that he would get an answer from the NCAA Clearing house about his eligibility this fall so he enrolled at Sheridan. I had one source tell me that the Bobcat coaches placed him at Sheridan, other say no. The Bobcat coaches have been recruiting him for awhile. The Bobcats are/were in pretty good with him but San Diego, Fresno St, Idaho, Santa Clara, and San Francisco have also been heavily involved. Last week he was cleared by the NCAA to play next year for a D-1 club and his recruitment has since taken off. Iowa, Rutgers, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Creighton, Washington State, Clemson and Boston College are now getting involved. Again he is a “we will see” prospect.

Player Summary: Glover is a true point guard who can shoot well enough that he can play the shooting guard spot. He is also athletic and strong enough that he can swing to the small forward if needed. He capable of big scoring nights having hit 30 a couple times this season. The fact he is 6-4, point and will have three year eligibility is what has all the big schools excited.
