Montana Gets A Verbal From Brandon Gfeller

The Montana Grizzlies are capitalizing on their Big Sky title by getting an early verbal committment from a guard in the 2013-14 class. Brandon Gfeller, a 6'3'' guard who averaged 18 points per game last year, has stated he will attend Montana. He will be a senior this season.

Gfeller (say JEE-feller) averaged 18 points a game in leading Colfax to its first state championship since 1979 last season. He plays point guard for the Bulldogs, but projects as a shooting guard or small forward at the college level.
Montana will be losing Will Cherry to graduation after next season, which could open up some playing time in the backcourt. The Grizzlies are not bringing in any guards in this year's recruiting class, so that could especially open up playing time for Gfeller as he moves later in his career.

From the video, his body definitely appears to be a shooting guard, with the possibility of playing the three if he grows a bit more. He's got very nice range on his jumper. I suspect at this point he won't have a huge impact in year one (like the freshmen from last season), but has a chance to grow into a good starter for the Grizzlies.
