Some good news for Montana State, as JUCO big man Jake Owsley has committed to the Bobcats for the class of 2012.
I first saw this posted by mslacat on the Bobcats message board, and then saw it confirmed on MaxPreps.
Owsley won't be a star in the Big Sky, but he should be a solid big man for Brad Huse. Skilled big men are not exactly easy to come by in the Big Sky, and Owsley has some skill. For one of the best JUCO teams in the country, he averaged about 15 minutes a game during the season, and represented himself well when he got the chance to start a couple of games.
Owsley should compete for a starting spot this season at North Idaho, and then (I would guess) will be a fringe starter/first big off the bench once he gets to Bozeman. Either way, a quality signing by Huse to get a solid big man for depth. The Bobcats will be interesting this season with so many new guys, but they are shaping up to be very solid in 2012-13.
