College Basketball: Kaspar signs four on Wednesday

Danny Kaspar and his coaching staff logged a lot of miles this offseason trying to find the right players to fill out what will be an important recruiting class.

Well, that work paid off as four players signed National Letters of Intent on Wednesday — D.J. Brown, Ethan Montalvo, Cameron Naylor and Jamarcus Weatherspoon. All four are transfers and are eligible to play for Texas State next season.

Brown spent the past four seasons at San Jose State, where he played point guard. This past season, Brown appeared in 31 games and had a 2.3-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio.

Montalvo joins the Bobcats after two years at North Platte Community College in Kansas. He had a tremendous 2013-14 season where he averaged 18.9 points per game and shot 37 percent from beyond the arc.

Naylor is a 6-foot-7 forward who can play both small forward and power forward. While Naylor is going to need to put some weight on his 205-pound frame, Kaspar likes his ability to defend and the Tallahassee Community College product’s mid-range shot.

Weatherspoon is a 6-foot-4 guard from Kilgore College. As a sophomore with the Rangers in 2013-14, Weatherspoon averaged 13.4 points per game and shot 35 percent from beyond the arc.

Analysis

Based on what Kaspar has coming in next year, I’d fully expect at least two of the recruits to start right away — Brown, Naylor and possibly Weatherspoon. Brown has four years of experience as a Division-I point guard, Naylor could cause problems for opponents in the front court and Weatherspoon is incredibly athletic.

Depending on if Kaspar wants to go small or not, Montalvo and Wesley Davis could also start. Davis is the team’s best on-ball defender and that’s a needed commodity in Kaspar’s system. Montalvo would add a needed deep threat (We did say the same thing about Victor Bermudez this past season) and the ability to play point guard.
