There’s a really good chance that Eiden IV and Croy come to MSU.
I just saw Croy has committed to the Griz. Is there still a chance for Eiden?

Really bummed about that. I like him as a prospect, a lot.
Why? his Dad played for the Griz

If the roles where reversed, heritage player, lives in Bozeman... I would say no shot."

Oh I understand it. Just bummed because I like him as a player. Would've fit in very well at MSU.

Croy’s dad played for the Griz? I don’t recall seeing that. When was he there?

"Croy was an all-state running back at Huntley Project as a junior, running for 2,173 yards and 32 touchdowns.

Croy is the son of Guy Croy, who played for the Montana Grizzlies"

Of course we still have a chance for Eiden. In fact, MSU has the best chance to land Eiden out of any FCS school. However, he is being highly coveted by not only the two in-state schools but also Missouri Valley powers NDSU and SDSU (Jason Eck has been his primary recruiter). It will be a battle next year.

Croy's dad played one fall for the Griz, hardly a legacy pick for him to go play there. Hate to say it but not a huge loss for the Cats- Croy is the third best RB on the Hawks squad behind a hurt O'Reilly and Eiden. Eiden is carrying the ball a little more now that it's playoff time and much more explosive and elusive than Croy.

I have absolutely no idea where Croy plays in college. FB? H-Back? I doubt he's ever an impact player. I just want all the big, fast, strong kids I can get on a football team. Good for the locker room, good for special teams.

You are correct though, 3rd best back on Bozeman's team.

I read he was the leading rusher in AA football.
Is this a case of "Our back up is better than our starter"? :)

Croy *was* the backup before O'Reilly got hurt.

O'Reilly was going to play both ways regardless in 2019 but the addition of Croy added extra flexibility with McCade. That flexibility would've included more or less offensive reps depending on the opponent and more of a full slate on defense. Bozeman would've been the easy front-runner this fall if McCade was playing. There's a good argument he's the most talented of the three brothers (Payton, Callahan, and McCade) because of his two-way ability. However, Payton and Callahan each have a pretty good case themselves.

Croy is impressive to watch, isn't afraid to hit, guessing if McCade wasn't hurt, the Hawks would have had easily had the best 1/2 RB combo in the state. Either one could be #1 or #2. Extremely impressed with Croy this year.

I know two great people that have had Coach as a coach over the years. They have nothing but respect for him. Several parentA of players over the years have always spoken highly of his honesty and character and how he cares for their kids. Good enough for me, I’d love to sit and have a beer or two with him and listen to his experiences.

I think he was referring to Choate. I am guessing he wanted to post in the other thread about perceived mind games.
