LOGAN, Utah – Utah State head men’s basketball coach Craig Smith has announced the signing of Rollie Worster, who was named the 2018-19 Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Montana. Worster is a two-sport athlete at Hellgate High School in Missoula, Mont., starring for the Knights on both the football field and basketball court.
Last season, Worster led Hellgate to a Class AA state runner-up finish as he averaged 22.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game. Worster, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound guard led the state in scoring as a junior and was named the MVP of the Class AA state tournament. Worster is a three-time all-conference and all-state selection.
On the football field, Worster is both a first-team all-state safety and an honorable mention all-state selection at quarterback, throwing for more than 3,400 yards and rushing for more than 2,000 yards in his career.
“We are thrilled to announce that Rollie Worster will be joining the Utah State family,” Smith said. “Rollie embodies what our program is all about. He has great character, humility, work ethic, and is passionate about basketball. At 6-3, 205 pounds, Rollie has excellent size for a guard. He has great feel for the game and has the ability to make plays for his teammates and himself. He is a winner!”
Worster will have four years of eligibility for the Aggies.
