About a year ago there was a big man from Alaska very briefly talked about on here. His name is Damen Bell-Holter from Ketchikan. 6'9, 240.

GU was listed, but he had verballed to Missouri State. He is now out of his Letter of Intent because the coach was fired. Is he still possibly a big man GU would be interested in?

Note from Rivals (http://rivalshoops.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=666555)

Alaskan 6-foot-9 post man Damen Bell-Holter stood out for 2D1 Basketball Academy, scoring 24 points on post moves, dunks and 15-footers. Not the most athletic player, but Bell-Holter is large, poised with the ball and skilled.

I've read he's not the most athletic, but he may be able to fill the hole in the middle. BZ or anyone know anything about him?

General rule of thumb: If you want to change your run of early exits in the tournament, it is best not to go after Missouri State commits.

I'm just sayin'...

I'd disagree HLS97...it's more about THE SYSTEM than a recruit, plus plenty of great players have hailed from less than stellar schools. We need a big body!!!!

I went to Juneau-Douglas High School, Ketchikan's rival, and just wanted to point out that during Bell-Holter's junior season he went up against a senior in Will Egolf who was a 2 star who committed to Bradley and got dominated. This past season, he did score 27 on us in the regional championship game, but still lost. He's a decent prospect, but I'm not sure he could play at our level.

I think Few would have nabbed him first time around if he was really interested. THINK FOREIGN
