Basketball Recruiting: Austin Colbert Narrows It Down To Six

A week after announcing that he would play his senior season at Gill St. Bernard’s School alongside 2013 Northwestern commit, Jaren Sina, Austin Colbert has narrowed down his list. Miami, Memphis, Vanderbilt, Seton Hall, Illinois, and Georgia Tech are the final schools in the running for this 2013 power forward.

Earlier this week, we released our rankings for the Class of 2013 and Colbert came in as the number 60 prospect overall. He’s a long 6’9″ power forward that shows a lot of athleticism on the inside. He likes to play above the rim and has great jumping ability, allowing him to finish over would-be defenders. Colbert also possesses nice post moves and scores from the low block with ease.

When I spoke to Colbert, he informed me that he planned on making a few visits before committing sometime in the next month and a half.

“I plan on taking official visits to all five of the schools except Seton Hall, but Seton Hall is close so I can take an unofficial there,” said Colbert.

With his decision set to come sometime around next month, his recruitment will be closely followed by many. Five of the six schools are all in different conferences, which may factor in to his final decision. Colbert says there are no favorites at this point, so it will be interesting to see which school takes the lead after all the visits have been made.
