“We’re thrilled to sign Robert and have him become a part of our program in the coming years. Robert is first, and foremost, a tremendous individual and will be a great asset to our campus. He’s a hard-worker, very disciplined, and a very humble young man. In terms of his basketball ability, we think that Robert has a great skill set and his best basketball days are still in front of him. He played the post position at Worland, but will need to transition his game to the forward spot in college. After he visited and played with our team, we were pleasantly surprised with his skill set from the perimeter and we believe he’ll make the transition in a short amount of time. His toughness, strength, and leadership abilities will be of great value to our program.”

““Matt is a very unique player, in that he has great size for a guard and can play multiple positions. We plan on playing him at both guard spots, and realistically, he could play some small forward if needed because of his size & strength. Matt is a true point guard in the long run, though, and will be a match-up problem on both sides of the ball. The thing that we really like about Matt is his great court vision to find other players, and he can create shots for himself when needed. He should have an immediate impact on our program. We’re thrilled to sign a player of his caliber, and he will be a great addition to our community because he is a great kid!”

When he came on his visit to campus, he took his game to an even higher level and really played well against our guys. He has a unique skill set and is able to score in a variety of different ways, and his size and strength will really help us out down low.
