GREAT FALLS — An already stacked recruiting class for the University of Providence just got bigger with the addition of a local talent.

Great Falls CMR point guard Caleb Currington officially signed with the Argos Monday morning, after a two year run with the Rustlers that included a state title in 2018.

Currington led Class AA in steals (2.83 per game) as a senior, and was second in assists (5.39 per game). And though he only spent two seasons at CMR, after transferring from California before his junior season, Great Falls has become home. And he’s grateful for the chance to continue his career and education in the Electric City.

“Ever since I was little I always dreamed about playing college basketball and going on to the next level,” Currington said. “So it’s a good experience for me. This is the only school that gave me a chance to show my talent.”

“We like how Caleb distributes the basketball, he got a lot of steals. His anticipation is great,” said Providence coach Steve Keller. “He was coming off the bench at CMR two years ago and was a big factor in them winning a state title his junior year. We think that we have the style of play that he’ll excel in and we’re looking forward to watching his progress.”

Currington joins a huge recruiting class that already features 16 signees. The Argo roster right now sits at 28 players. Coach Keller is exploring the creation of a developmental team and a smaller schedule is on the table to make sure everyone can practice and earn game experience.
