Steve Gosar: 'Daequon Leads By Example'

College of Southern Idaho PF Daequon Montreal became the latest addition to the 2009 Boise State recruiting class with his commitment last weekend. The outstanding PF held offers from numerous programs across the country but the Broncos were able to seal the deal in the end. CSI Head Coach Steve Gosar spoke to BroncoCountry.com about Montreal's recruitment and his decision to become a Bronco.

College of Southern Idaho PF Daequon Montreal (Syracuse, NY) became the latest addition to the 2009 Boise State recruiting class with his commitment just a few days ago. Boise State was just the perfect fit for Montreal.

"He's very familiar with the program," Gosar said. "He had a chance to go watch the games and they did a great job of recruiting him. I think he has fallen in love with southern Idaho and he's made a lot of friends around here. He just feels comfortable."

What does Montreal bring to the Broncos? "He's an inside-outside threat and he can also knock down the three," he said. "He's 6'8 and can go in there and get rebounds. He's a smooth player."

Bronco fans can expect Montreal to be active on the boards from start to finish. "The one thing he does best is that he's really long and active," he said. "He's a great offensive rebounder and finisher. He can wear some of the bigger posts out," he added.

Daequon also brings leadership and solid character to the Bronco program. "He's an even better person than a player. He's top notch and a great individual. He's very friendly and can relate with people very well."

The standout PF is all about winning and commitment. "He's very much a team guy," Gosar said. "Daequon leads by example. He's a wonderful teammate and he's committed to the team."

At times, one can pick up the stat sheet and not realize just how well a certain player performed in the game. "He's kind of a quiet guy. You won't know he had a double-double at the end of the night. He's a steady guy that will bring it everyday."

Last season, Montreal averaged 15.9 points per game, 9 rebounds, and 1 blocked shot per game.
