Was confusing at first....but he is the second recruit of that class....joining Bowen.

More info per Mark Miller...

After a week of putting out our updated Player Rankings, time to get caught up on some other news in the world of college and high school basketball:
 
Former Milwaukee standouts excel at Hill Junior College
 
Three former Milwaukee prep stars are playing key roles for the Hill Junior College men’s basketball team.
 
Freshman Monterale Clark, who played for both Rufus King and Pius XI, leads the Rebels in scoring at 17.8 points per game. The 6-foot-10, 208-pound forward is also averaging 11.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocked shots per game while helping Hill Junior College to an 11-7 record.
 
According to Hill Junior College coach Swede Trenkle, Auburn, Baylor and Oklahoma State have extended scholarship offers to Clark with Clemson, Marquette, Miami and Nevada also showing strong interest in the rapidly improved big man.
 
“Monterale came in here very skilled and I think the one thing he has done is he has become more physical and has matured as a basketball player,” Trenkle said. “He is playing every possession and wants to get better.”
 
Trenkle said Clark is maintaining a 2.9 grade-point average and will have another year of attending Hill Junior College, which is located in Hillsboro, Texas, before playing at the NCAA Division I level.

Something is wrong - he must be the second recruit for 2010-2011.  2009-2010 already includes williams, maymon, cadougan, roseboro (am i missing someone?)

Appears that Buzz is keeping up with his goal of recruiting a tall guy every year.

Someday MU might have of all things....tall guy options off the bench!!!!!!

Rosiak must be referring to the 2009-2010 recruiting season   My post title referred to the 2010-11 playing season.

Gets confusing doesn't it!

Rosiak is stating it "weirdly", Clark is a 2010 recruit who will be playing in the 2010-2011 season. 

Sounds like he's a pure Juco though, so he'll have 2 years of eligibility?

Yep.  2 year kid.  Hopefully he continues to develop in JUCO and put on a few pounds before hitting MU.

Not sure how I feel about the signing.  I'd rather not load up on Juco guys, but that's just me.

Nice link Crew - when you go to his personal page, and then Rankings, you get...

Ranks Number 1 in Division I in Defensive Rebounds per Game (7.043)
Ranks Number 2 in Division I in Total Rebounds per Game (10.478)
Ranks Number 4 in Division I in Blocks per Game (2.304)
Ranks Number 7 in Division I in Offensive Rebounds per Game (3.435)
Ranks Number 10 in Division I in Points per Game (16.913)
Ranks Number 13 in Division I in Field Goal Pct (0.578)

Of course, Div 1 JUCO, but great stats!  Averages a double-double (16 & 10).

(not sure if the link will work)

Can't say I'm surprised, I've seen him at the BC a couple times this year.

He's an athletic freak with good if not great skills.  But academic and transfer issues kept him from playing a lot in HS.  If his head is on straight he can be very good.

FWIW, Crean recruited Clark when he was still in HS, and followed him to the JUCO when it became obvious that he had no shot at qualifying.

Also, it looks like this happened yesterday and just didn't get announced by Rosiak until today.

This seems a little suprising.  Granted the kid may be great for all I know and he is 6'10" but Bowen is not that high level of a recruit as I understand it and Clark seems like a nice player but not as high end of a prospect as it seems MU should be in the running for.   With only one more slot in that class I'm not sure this is the best choice.  I am sure I am missing something but it seems off to me...

Any time I read "Best" and "Big Man" in the same sentence, even if it is on the Texas Basketball Inc. blog, I get excited.

Sounds like a solid get.

How in the freaking hell could we sign this kid...we will have Roseboro as a Sophomore and McMorrow and Otule as Juniors as well that year.  Does this guy not realize that with those three and our other size up front in Maymon, Willimas, Fulce, etc minutes are no there?  OH My good ness Jmayer...please help anyone comprehend this!!!

Sarcasm off!!

Kid looks like a great recruit!!!  Great size looks to be scoring, rebounding and swatting!!  Juco numers can be deceiving but when his coach says he is aggressive, etc. that goes along way in my book.  1.5 years to bulk up.  Buzz is rolling baby.  Glad buzz and our recruits are not as worried about minutes as some of our ignorant fans.  

I think our roster is really stacking up to be big time strong in 2010-2011, next year we might have growing pains but the next year we will be loaded!!

From BMA's link

Quote
Just got off the phone with my buddy, Hill College (TX) Head Coach Swede Trenkle. The best unsigned Junior College Big Man in the country is now off the board. Coach trenkle informed me that 6'10" Monterale Clark who is from Milwaukee, WI has committed to one of the hardest working coaches in the country.

That's right, Buzz Williams is at it again. Whether he's at Colorado State, Texas A&M, New Orleans, or now at Marquette the tireless Williams has feathered his cap again. The Big East got bigger with the addition of Clark to the Marquette Golden Eagles.

Bowen is a player...dont let rankings fool you not too many sophomores in high school that didnt play summer ball are highly rated.  Just wait and that will take care of itself over the summer.  he is a high major player.  Lok for us to sign a 1 or another 2 with the last schollie,, although that is affected by if or whom we sign in the spring.

If he is a freshman, then he graduated high school in 2008.  Even if he went the prep school route in 2007, I could not find him on any recruiting site for those two years.  Anyone remember him from Milwaukee high school All City team or anything?

With MU's current success, ranking, exposure, etc. and only one scholarship left in 2010, you would think Buzz would be after a higher ranked high school, not JUCO recruit.  Who knows, but the kid needs to put on weight, he is in Bo Ellis land right now at 208lbs.

Buzz signed a great class for 2009 and has started off with two guys pretty far off the radar for 2010 (although I think Bowen is pretty underrated). 

Why can't Buzz land all 4 or 5 star guys like the rest of the top Big East teams do?

I was going to post this originally, but forgot and now you've given me a reason.  The reason you won't find anything for Monterale Clark is because people had his name wrong for most of his high school career.  For some reason everybody thought his name was Montrell Clark, and in some cases Montrelle Clark or Montrell Clarke or even Montrel Clark.  So there is info available you just have to know what to look for. 

For example, here's his Rivals bio, under Montrell Clark:

http://basketballrecruiting.rivals.com/viewprospect.asp?Sport=2&pr_key=56182

Here's his Scout bio under Montrel Clark:

http://scouthoops.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=8&c=1&nid=1719241

In regards to your other question, he never made any of the all city teams because he had to sit out as a transfer(King to Pius) and then wasn't academically eligible to play much of the time.  Most his recruiting interest came from AAU ball with Wisconsin DTA.

Judging by this picture, apparently the fans hated him, and he had to climb up through the hoop to escape the angry mob.

Jeez, I was just using Bo's slight build as an example.  Should have figured some fool would bring that up.  BTW, Bo was a top ten recruit and Parade All American, I'm not that stupid. Good grief.

Good luck to Clark in the weight room.

Thanks BMA for the high school info.  Figured there was a good reason.

WoW!!  yeah larry Johnson sucked too.

Buycks is a top-rated JC guy and was recruited pretty heavily coming out of high school.  This guy doesn't even show up on rivals or scout (edited: Makes sense given BMA's comments but he still doesn't appear to be real highly rated).

Please tell me why I should expect this guy to be any better than Hazel, Christopherson, Blackledge, Cubillan, Lott, Burke, Kinsella or any of the other guys MU signed over the past few years that weren't highly rated.

Now, I think he looks like an interesting specimen and it's always good to get tall projects rather than short projects but you would be led to believe by some on this board that Buzz was above taking guys like this because all he would get every year would be 4-star, top 100 type of guys.
