South Kamloops top prospect Josh Wolfram signs with Calgary Dinos

Josh Wolfram, a top prospect from South Kamloops HS, has signed with the Calgary Dinos for next season. He joins a list of very strong high school seniors joining the Dinos roster.

Josh Wolfram, a 6’9” ‘small forward’ (ok … he’s tall, but plays like a small forward) has become the last piece in the recruiting puzzle for Coach Dan Vanhooren’s Calgary Dinos. After weighing his options elsewhere, including his hometown Kamloops team, the Thompson Rivers Wolfpack, Wolfram joins a very impressive list of high school seniors already signed with the Dinos.

Truly a big fish for Vanhooren, Wolfram has an outstanding scoring touch, especially from outside, and he has been part of a winning program at South Kamloops HS under Coach Del Komarniski, with the 2010 team finishing 3rd at the B.C. Provincials. Josh also has experience with the B.C. U-17 Provincial team, and was considered one of the blue chip prospects in that province this year. He joins high school teammate Tyler Jaroszuk, also a 6’9” forward at South Kam, who signed early on.

With outstanding high school recruits like Matt Letkeman, the 6’7” forward from the Yale Lions (Abbotsford), where he and his team won the B.C. Championship, and Philip Labongo, the Manitoba HS Player of the year from Dakota HS in Winnipeg, Calgary has snatched some real talent to rebuild after the graduation of Ross Bekkering, Robbie Sihota, Jamie McLeod, and Lindsay Thouret.

Calgary high school standouts, Brad Clark, a 6’8” post from Churchill, and Nebojsa Kuljic, a 6’5” wing from the Alberta Champion Western Canada Redmen, will also give the program a big boost, as both, according to Coach Vanhooren, “are good kids, who will work hard to develop into solid CIS players.”

Other additions to the roster for the fall include Andy Rochon, the point guard from the Chicago area, who played a very useful role on the 2008-09 Canada West Championship team. Yuri Annisovets, a 6’7” forward, originally from Russia, but who played some JC ball in the U.S. is eligible for the 2010-11 season, and Calgary also will benefit from the experience of guard Keenan Milburn, from Courtenay, B.C., who played 3 years at SAIT.
