Incoming Montana Grizzly Jake Wiley

Bob Meseroll of The Missoulian has a nice article on Jake Wiley, who will be a freshman at Montana this season.

Jake Wiley’s path to the University of Montana was strewn with obstacles.

The Griz basketball freshman was raised in a rough-and-tumble neighborhood near Long Beach, Calif. He admittedly surrounded himself with friends who were bad influences and owned a 1.6 grade point average at the end of his freshman year at Lakewood High.

Right after that school year, his father packed up and took his son to Newport, Wash., a town of a little more than 2,000 people northeast of Spokane on the Pend Oreille River where his father’s parents lived.
