Im sure many people come on here and other sites talking about how good their son or cousin is..Well im yet another except my nephew is really gonna blow up this year..so remember the name..
He is a 6'8 215 pound pf/sf upcoming sr out of GreatFalls Montana(CMR HS)..he led his team to a state title with only 2 losses for the season..he made first team all state MVP of the State Tournament and won the Gatorade Player of the Year award... Josh has gotten many write ups in the Montana paper about being one of the best players to ever come out of Montana as well as projecting to be the best to ever come out after his senior year he also just went to the Oklahoma State Elite basketball camp where he was one of (if not the best) player at the camp and afterwards was offered a scholarship and is now being heavily pursued by them( you can contact the coach for confirmation)..he is also working with a couple of NBA players as well as his father( Derrel"poncho"hodges) who is also a former probasketball player and a couple european players (Ewbekwi) while out in California..on top of his personal trainers He been running at Ucla with these pros and every last one of them says he has NBA potenial with the comparisions being a combination of the late Eddie Griffin and Shane Battier (except a lot more athletic and has better handles). His next stop in between training is the Washington Elite basketball camp and then AAU
SOME WRITE UPS FROM MONTANA PAPERS AND CLIP
Players of the Week:
Josh Huestis of CMR. Josh Huestis put on offensive and defensive clinic this past weekend. The 6’ 7” Huestis scored 20 points, grabbed 10 boards and blocked 5 shots in leading his team to an overtime victory over second ranked and defending state champion Billings West. The junior added 18 points, 10 rebounds and 6 block shots the following night in a 20 point thumping of Billings Senior. Huestis is averaging 11 boards, 4.5 blocked shots and nearly 16 points per outing.
It was the best in the east versus the best in the west. So naturally I had to check it out when Helena Capital hit the road for the Electric City and a match up with CM-Russell on Saturday. What did I learn? Josh Huestis is the best basketball player in Montana.
14 points, 7 rebounds, 9 blocked shots.
The numbers might not blow you away, but I have never seen a player in Montana dominate a game like Josh did this season. Check out the video at the top of this post. Officially they gave him 9 blocks, but I counted at least 11. Even when he wasn't blocking shots, just his presence in the middle made any player hesitant to take it to the hole. Matt Miller, one of the top players around, was held to just 33% shooting. Every time I have seen Miller play he has driven to the rim easily, but on Saturday Huestis was there just about every time. He's like a pogo stick. Even if he gets faked out, he still has the athleticism to recover and swat one.
On the offensive end Capital was triple teaming him almost the entire game and he still got 14. The thing I was most impressed with were his ball distribution skills. Not once did he force up a bad shot. If it wasn't there he always hit the open man. And when he did get it down low with only single coverage...he was unstoppable. The kid has some serious post moves, and can jump higher than pretty much anyone else in the state. When I saw him last year he could dunk, but he needed to be wide open. This year, it doesn't matter where he is.....he will throw one down over anyone.
The crazy thing about Huestis? He is only a Junior! Right now he is 6'7". If he grows another two inches before the end of his senior year...he should get some serious attention from major D-1 college programs. And if Huey and the Rustlers keep playing like they have over the past 2 weeks....I don't see anyone being able to stop them in Butte.

Ed West: Huestis has place among best big men
By ED WEST
Of The Gazette Staff
When I think of premier big men in Montana high school basketball, those who come quickly to mind include Wayne Estes, Mike Lewis, Jack Gillespie, Brent Wilson, Les Craft and Larry Krystkowiak.
Today, we have another budding great in our midst in Great Falls CMR's Josh Huestis.
Yes, he's only halfway through his junior year, but I think Huestis will eventually be remembered as one of the great big men in state history. He can do everything you need from a post: score, rebound, play defense and intimidate shooters.
That much was evident in Friday's overtime victory over Billings West. The 6-foot-7 Huestis scored 20 points, collected 10 rebounds, blocked five shots and probably altered at least that many more.
I would imagine that the Bobcats and Grizzlies would like to see him in uniform in a couple of years. Whether they get the chance may depend on how much Huestis progresses.
The slender Huestis has to get stronger for the college game, and he'll probably have to play away from the basket much more. CMR coach John Cislo said Huestis has been working on his perimeter shooting in practice, although we may not see it much in games because he can score so well inside.
Those guys I mentioned all had pretty good college careers - Estes at Utah State, Lewis at Duke (third team all-America selection), Gillespie at Montana State, Wilson at Montana State and Colorado State, Craft at Kansas State and Krystkowiak at Montana.
Lewis, Gillespie, Wilson and Craft all led their high school teams to state championships.
Lewis played on what I believe were the most dominant teams in state history, the 1962-63 and 1963-64 Missoula Spartans, who went 49-0 in those seasons. Gillespie led Great Falls to the Big 32 title in 1965, and Wilson scored 51 points points (still a state tourney record) in leading Kalispell Flathead to the 1970 AA championship. Craft helped Bozeman win consecutive AA crowns in 1978 and '79.
Estes, who was Utah State's leading scorer until last year, pushed Anaconda to a 25-1 record and third-place finish in his senior season of 1961. Krystkowiak got Missoula Big Sky into the state tournament in just the Eagles' second year of existence, 1982 and, of course, went on to become a legend for the Grizzlies and later played in the NBA.
Can Huestis lead his team to a state championship or two? It looks quite possible.
Certainly, players of more recent vintage like Matt Garrison (Senior), Dan Sullivan and John Lazosky of West, Matt Kempfert and Ryan Dick of Hellgate and Adam Leachman of Bozeman were all very good. Glendive had a good big man, 6-10 Derek Selvig, who's now a 7-footer playing with the Grizzlies. Selvig, however, was more of a perimeter player than a post.
There are probably some other names we're overlooking. Regardless, when comes to future discussions of big men, Huestis should be mentioned.
I Will try to remember
when i first wrote this josh wasnt known out side of montana..now after the summer and aau hes ranked in the top 115 and still rising( was top 180 last week) and now being recruited hard by georgetown,standford,usc and a bunch of other schools as well as being the number 1 sleeper in the naton by a couple scouting sites

While the news of Jeremy Green’s suspension continues to percolate, Stanford basketball did receive some good news on Thursday night: Forward Josh Huestis has committed to the Cardinal. He is a part of the ever-growing and impressive recruiting Class of 2010, which was ranked No. 11 before Huestis made his collegiate intentions known and may now crack the top 10 nationally.
Huestis, the 2009 Montana Gatorade Player of the Year as a junior, has a three-star rating from Scout.com and is tabbed as the No. 21 small forward in his class. Both ESPN and Rivals.com label him as a power forward, with the World Wide Leader giving him a high grade of 90.
Huestis stands 6-foot-7, 210 pounds, and became a national prospect after an impressive summer of camps and tournaments. As a junior, he averaged a double-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks per game.
His final decision came down to Harvard and Stanford. He is the Cardinal’s fifth commitment.
