Post player has eyes on Bobcats

Only three players on the current Bobcat roster are 6'8" and two are seniors. Needless to say Texas State is going to need to fill those shoes sooner rather than later and Texas State may have found a player who could do just that.

Connor McClenaghan is another star to have recently been offered by Texas State. He has other offers from Weber State, UT Arlington, Sam Houston State, St. Bonaventure and New Hampshire.

He plays for Hebron High School, the third highest ranked basketball program in the state, 12th highest in the nation as ranked by Max Preps. He played on a Pro Skills team for the first time this summer but his starting position was short lived due to an ankle injury.

"I'm looking for higher major schools, but I'm pretty open," McClenaghan said. "Playing with (Pro Skills) and being able to start really helped me a lot."

Texas State, Weber State and St. Bonaventure are in his top 3 at this point in time but is not close to a decision. That doesn't mean that Texas State isn't keeping in touch though, they are pursuing hard.

"Coach Hester & Kaspar have called me a lot recently," McClehaghan said. "(Texas State) is close to home, but far away enough. I think the Sun Belt is a good conference to play in."

McClenaghan has range and can hit from anywhere on the court although at 210lbs, would need to beef up to become a true post threat in the Sun Belt.
