Quick Scouting Report for Bishop Montgomery:

Team Notes – Bishop Montgomery will not wow anyone with its size, but will make up for it with disciplined team defense and great offensive precision. With a mixture of strong slashers and sharpshooters, Bishop Montgomery is one of the top programs in the country.

G – Ethan Thompson ’17, Oregon State
Thompson is a knock-down shooter and delivers a smooth offensive game from the perimeter to the rim. His size and length make him difficult to guard, especially with his elite ball handling and great passing ability.

G – Jordan Schakel ’17, San Diego State
Schakel is regarded as one of the most all-around wing players in Southern California. Schakel can guard, rebound, shoot and make his teammates better. The 6-foot-5 senior is still getting maturing and is always dependable for a scoring run of his own.

F – David Singleton ’18, Undecided
Singleton is a physical wing-type that isn’t afraid of contact on either side of the floor. The junior has PAC-12 offers from Arizona, USC and Oregon, among many others, including current NCAA men’s basketball No. 1 Gonzaga.
