Rostampour to St. Cloud

Has anybody reported that Mike Rostampour, former Henry Sibley standout, will be playing for the St. Cloud State Huskies starting this fall? Many thought Rostampour to be a D1 prospect out of high school, but the right offer never came along, and he ended up going the junior college rout. Now comes word that he will be playing at St. Cloud.

The Huskies figure to be rebuilding after losing the 2 stars of their 2009 D2 Final Four entry--post Matt Schneck, class of 2009, and guard Trevor Witt, class of 2010.

Rostampour's energy, intensity and strength will be assets for the St. Cloud program. The question is whether a team for whom Rostampour is the best player can be a contender. I haven't seen Mike play since high school, of course, (he attended a JC in Texas), but his skills are perhaps such that he'll need a pretty solid sidekick (preferably a scorer) for the Huskies to return to NSIC championship and D2 Final Four contention. Still, he's a great addition to what has been a sound program and should remain so as long as coach Kevin Schlagel is pulling the strings.
