Another "surprise" signing! It looks like he will be a walk on this coming season.

Welcome, Cody!

Cody Mivshek has enrolled at the University of Portland and joined the men’s basketball program, head coach Eric Reveno announced today. Mivshek, a 6-foot-2 guard and two-time all-state performer at Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins, Colo., spent last season at Philips Exeter Academy (Exeter, N.H.) and was named the prep school’s team MVP.



“Cody is a great fit for our basketball program,” Reveno said. “He is a competitor and will do everything to make himself and his teammates better. Cody is an excellent shooter, can play multiple positions and is also an outstanding student.”



Mivshek was a four-year letterman at Fossil Ridge and was named the Northern Conference Player of the Year as a junior in 2007. He was a three-time All-Northern Conference selection and was a member of the school’s inaugural varsity basketball team as a freshman during the 2004-05 season at the ‘4A’ level. Mivshek led the Sabercats to the State 4A Quarterfinals as a senior and earned second team all-state honors his final two years in the program. He was also named the team MVP his final two years at Fossil Ridge.



Mivshek earned team MVP honors for a Philips Exeter team that finished 14-5 at the Class A level of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) last season. He tied for the team-high in scoring average at 13 points per game and also contributed five rebounds and three assists per outing.



Portland is coming off of a 19-13 season and the program’s first post-season berth since 1996. The Pilots return 12 players from last year’s roster including four players who earned All-West Coast Conference honors.

We need to have him checked out. He apparently shrank an inch since he was named to a Colorado All State team.

What stood out for me is that he spent a year at Exeter. They really stress academics there.
They were the original feeder school to Harvard. (Philips Andover fed Yale)

It's one of the oldest prep schools in america who's grads include Daniel Webster and Franklin Pierce.

Lincoln and Grant sent there kids there..

Expensive as hell, too. 40K a year.
