Danny Robison of Billings West makes a pass

Danny Robison of Billings West makes a pass from the lane during the first half against rival Billings Senior on Jan. 17 at the Broncs' gym. West defeated Senior 49-37.

Billings West standout Danny Robison has given a verbal commitment to join the men's basketball program at Montana State next season.

Robison, a 6-foot-8 senior, leads all Class AA players in scoring and rebounding this season with averages of 20.4 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. He has scored at least 18 points in every game this season, helping West to a 9-1 record and the No. 1 ranking in Class AA.

Robison said he will officially sign with the Bobcats in April. He is the second Montana boys player to commit to a Division I school this year, joining Riley Bradshaw of Corvallis (Utah State).

"Signing with a Division I school is a goal I made this summer," said Robison, who said he plans to study pre-med. "I made an unofficial visit to Montana and I was considering a few of the Frontier Conference schools, but MSU just felt like a perfect fit for me.

"I really like their coaching staff, and academically they have exactly what I wanted. I'm excited about it."

Robison's sister, Shadra, played basketball at Montana from 2006-10. His brother, Shane, is a senior at MSU. Shane finished his career as a tight end for the Bobcat football team in December.

"He's happy about it ... he was definitely recruiting me a little bit," Robison said of his older brother. "I made my decision on Saturday. A lot of people are really happy about it, including me."
