Future Montana Grizzly Jake Wiley

Great article on future Montana Grizzly player Jake Wiley in The Spokesman Review.

Teachers at Lakewood High near Long Beach, Calif., would be stunned to learn that Jake Wiley will graduate this spring at Newport.

Additionally, they’d be shocked that he’s landed a scholarship to play basketball at the University of Montana.

That’s because Wiley passed one class his freshman year at Lakewood. He spent more time ditching classes rather than attending classes.
It seems like the young man has been through a lot in his life, and it is heartwarming to read about him turning his life around. He could be a great player for the Griz, and a nice addition to the Big Sky.

  1. I do a lot of 1 on 1 work With Jake helping him develop his game as well as his physical abilities and athleticism. He is an extremely hard worker and never stops playing basketball or working out. No matter what he is always hungry for more. He is working hard on his range as well. He is a special kid with a natural talent. The University of Montana is getting a steal on this guy. He is way under the radar and has incredible potential. He gets better everyday and it is a privilege to work with him. Montana just acquired a great competitor and a great basketball player.
