Griz Camp: Player Attendance

grizzbb

Typically, at college basketball camps every year, coaches will hire current and incoming players to help coach at the camps. Coaches love to do this, because they have a decent built in employee pool to hire camp coaches from, and it allows the players a chance to get together in one place, at one time, before the start of the season and get to know one another and play some ball. And if those same said player happen to play some pick up ball in the evening and some of the top recruits/campers just happen to come by and want to play , so more the better.

I am just going to say this more than one college athlete has earned a scholarship offer, after playing in one or two of these pick up games.

UM Recruit Update: Eric Hutchinson


I mentioned last week that Griz fall signie 6-9 Eric Hutchison was picked to play in a State of Washington senior all-star game last week-end. It took me awhile but I finally found the game results. Hutchison’s red team lost to the white team in a close one 73-74. Hutchison scored 9 points and had 6 rebounds. The red team’s high scorer was Jon DeVries, and then they had four players with 9 points.

Griz Men’s Basketball Wrap Up and Look Ahead (Part 4)


This is the final in a series of four posts on the Griz men’s basketball team, discussing the past season and a look ahead to next season. The four post shall be as followed, Part 1 Season Wrap up, Part 2 Look ahead: Big Men, Part 3 Look Ahead: Wing players and Part 4 Look Ahead: Recruits.

Taking a look at the Recruit / Recruiting

Last fall Tinkle filled all three of his projected 2009 scholarships with guard 6-2 guard Will Cherry, 6-5 combo forward Thurmond Woods and 6-9 center/ forward Eric Hutchison. As I have said before, I would expect Cherry to play next year. Hutchison I think really could use a redshirt year, but will be one of the few big men with size on the team next year and could be pressed into action at he center position. Woods is a talent, but the only question is at which position. Right now he is a power forward, who can play some at the 3 spot. He has not played high school basketball this winter so he could be the x-factor coming into next fall. There are also some questions about him clearing the NCAA clearing house. From what I am hearing, Tinkle is out on the recruiting trail looking to sign at least one more players for this fall. To do that, though, that will mean at least one of the existing players will not be returning. I have heard a few names like Michael Taylor or Nyandigisi Moikobu, but the rumor I am hearing most often is Shawn Stockton may be looking to leave. I have heard Shawn may be looking to transfer to a JC (North Idaho?) or another D-1, with playing time being the reason. In any case it appears that Tinkle is looking to recruit a point guard this spring, from either the JC ranks or high school. I am told he definitely is looking for some one who can play next year. I have also heard he has been looking at some athletic power forward types again from both JC and high school ranks but, at this point it does not seem to be a priority. The spring recruiting season just kicked into high gear this past week so I expect to get a clearer idea what there priorities might be.

Update on Montana signies Hutchison and Woods


Eric Hutchison’s (6-8 , 225) Mark Morris team is 20-2 heading into the Washington 2A tourney, and is ranked #2 in the state. He is averaging 12 points, 7 rebounds a game for a team that goes 6-10, 6-9, and 6-8 across the front line. Hutchison really made a name for himself last summer on the AAU circuit. His rep is as a player who has all the tools to a very good D-1 player, he runs the floor extremely well has good hands and good instincts. Despite this he is needs some coaching to put it all together. At worse he will be a journey man Big Sky player. With some development (aggressiveness) he could be could be an all conference type player early in his career.


Thurmond Woods (6-5, 210) was ruled ineligible to play varsity ball this year because he is a 5th year senior. He is an undersized power forward right now who need, to improve his ball, and shooting skills to play his projected college position (small forward). Woods is a very explosive athlete and a tireless worker, who also plays a physical defensive game. I can see him being a very physical crowd pleasing player for the Griz. It will be interesting to see how Nyandigisi Moikobu and Woods develop in the Griz program, since they are essentially the same player. Moikobu, is taller, but Woods is more physical and has better skills. Do not be surprised if with Woods joining the Griz, Moikobu moves back to the power forward spot. I have been told as of a few weeks ago that Woods has not been cleared, by the NCAA Clearing House, and that there are still some issues that need to be resolved.
