Basketball Signing day
San Marcos, Texas – The Texas State men's basketball team announced the signing of four players to National Letters of Intent for next season. The Bobcats will welcome junior college players, Ethan Montalvo, Cameron Naylor and JaMarcus Weatherspoon. Current San Jose State guard D.J. Brown will graduate in May and be eligible to join the Bobcats on the court for next season as well.

"I expect all four of these players to vie for starting positions and get considerable minutes in their first year with us," said Texas State head coach Danny Kaspar.

Ethan Montalvo comes to the Bobcats from Omaha, Neb. He played his junior college ball at North Platte Community College outside Omaha, where he averaged 19 points, three assists, three rebounds and two steals per game. His career-game included a 40 point performance and later a 27 point performance against the No. 1 JUCO team in the country at the time, Iowa Western. During his two seasons there, North Platte went 57-11.

"Ethan Montalvo is a combo guard that is primarily a shooting guard but has played a lot of minutes at point guard for his high school and junior college team," Kaspar said. "He comes from a very well coached and disciplined program. Ethan is a qualifier out of high school that has the ability academically to get his degree here in a two-year period. He can really shoot the ball well and was a good leader for North Platte that made the national tournament his freshman year. He has had several 30 point games this year in junior college and even scored 40 in one game."

JaMarcus Weatherspoon comes to San Marcos from Kilgore Junior College in east Texas. He is originally from Baton Rouge, La. Weatherspoon averaged 13.4 points per game this season in 31 games played in which he started 20 of them. He was an 81.0 percent free throw shooter, giving the Bobcats a great finisher at the line. Kilgore finished the season 25-6 and advanced to the Region XIV semifinals.

"We're very excited about JaMarcus Weatherspoon signing with us," Kaspar said. "He is a 6-5 small forward who is very aggressive player both offensively and defensively. He has very good leadership skills as well as a very competitive nature. JaMarcus brings us something we did not have last year, and that is the ability to take the ball to the hole and get fouled and complete the play. He is a great get for us."

Cameron Naylor is a 6-7 forward who will be a swing player between the small forward and power forward positions. He will play in Texas after spending his entire career in Florida, with his hometown being Jacksonville, Fla. He first went to the University of North Florida as a freshman before transferring to Tallahassee Community College. His best game was a 30 point, 12 rebound performance this season in which he was 11-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the free throw line. The game was one of three double-digit rebound contests this season. For his efforts he was named First-Team All-Conference following the year.

"Cameron Naylor is a first-team all-conference player from the Pan Handle Conference," Kaspar said. "That conference is one of the best junior college conferences in the country. Cameron can play the "3" and "4". He can really move his feet and guard the basketball. He is a good athlete that has a good mid range game. We want to get him stronger in the weight room, and that is something we can easily do. I'm very excited about his signing with us."

D.J. Brown comes to the Sun Belt Conference after splitting his last three years between the WAC and Mountain West at San Jose State. In 2012-13 he started 28 games with the Spartans, averaging 9.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. He led the team in assists with 107 and led the team in scoring with a season-best 24 points against Houston. He is from Pasadena, Calif., and is not entirely unfamiliar with San Marcos after playing the Bobcats in 2012-13 when Texas State was in the WAC. In the game in San Marcos, Brown scored eight points, had four rebounds and two assists leading the Spartans to a win in the WAC season opener on Dec. 29, 2012.

"Brown is a transfer from San Jose State that will graduate in May and have only one year with us," Kaspar said. "In his short visit with us on campus I was impressed with his intelligence. He has a presence about him that says I'm a leader and I want to win. He has a great basketball I.Q. and great floor vision and is a good shooter from point guard spot. He will be bring a wealth of experience from the point guard spot. I normally do not take four-year transfers but in this case I felt like the gamble was worth it."


The group joins Jonathan Wiley (6-5 SG) and Austin Evans (6-11 F) who each signed with the Bobcats in the fall and will be freshmen next season.

Cajuns had three HS players in the early period, but added a couple of JUCO's and a possible graduate transfer. The JUCO signee is Devonta Walker, a 6-7 forward from Salisbury, Md. (Western Texas College/Parkside HS). We don't have it confirmed, but word is that a local JUCO PG will be transferring as a walk-on. The Cajuns are still in the running for Senior transfer Brian Williams from Oklahoma State.

Walk-on Williams was confirmed by his coach in the Cajun Redzone story.

I'm really hoping we can get former 5-star Devonta Pollard. Kentucky and Missouri giving him offers doesn't help our cause.

I'm very glad we landed Wesley Person Jr. though. He's going to be a great player. Just need to get him to sign his LOI.
