Montana Signs Andy Martin

This news is a bit old, but Montana snagged a nice recruitment with 7-footer Andy Martin last week. He played his senior year at Natron High School in Wyoming.

Per Mslacat, he will take a year at a prep school, and then join the team for the 2012-13 season.

It was tough to find too much information about him, so most of what I know is based on the highlight video below. Based on my observations there, he is a bit thin (so the year at prep school will help bulk up hopefully), an average athlete, and not the most fluid player. But he showed good touch around the basket and a couple solid post moves. Obviously it is hard to draw any conclusions from a 5 minute highlight video.

It is not always easy for Big Sky teams to get legitimate big men, so this is a nice get for Coach Wayne Tinkle. Martin is a legit 7-footer, and there aren't a lot of those around that are at least average athletes and have a decent skill set available. He certainly has the look of being an above average player in the Big Sky.

Anyone else know much about him?
