Beckman Catholic’s 5-foot-10 guard Colin Squiers has seen his recruitment spike since his 17U season wrapped up with the Iowa Mavericks.
Plenty of area NAIA and Division III programs have been in contact with the talented senior, and he’s been busy getting to see as many of the schools as he can.
“I’ve taken visits to Morningside, Briar Cliff, and University of Dubuque,” said Squiers. “I’ll be going to Wartburg College and Edgewood College in Madison, and then Sioux Falls. I’ve also been up to Upper Iowa a couple of times, to go to their camps.”
He’ll visit Wartburg on October 10th, followed by Edgewood on Oct. 17.
Right now, Squiers says Briar Cliff and Morningside are the two schools after him the most.
During his final offseason of grassroots basketball, Squiers says he worked to become more versatile; more than just a shooter.
“Individually I thought I got a lot stronger and was getting to the hole a lot more than I had been in the past when I was just shooting 3s,” he said. “I still need to get a little bit stronger, that’ll help me finish when I do get to the rim.”
Squiers’ grandpa – James Squiers — was named the new coach at Beckman Catholic at the conclusion of last season. James coached at Marquette Catholic in the past, and took the Mohawks to eight state tournaments between 1993 and 2006.
‘It will make me want to help out the team more with he and me together, and I’ll definitely have good chemistry and a good connection with the coach,” said Colin, who averaged 11.1 points and 2.7 assists last season.
“Hopefully I can make first team all-conference, and hopefully just be the leader of the team.”

Beckman Catholic 2016 prospect Colin Squiers moved to Iowa last year from Minnesota, and he immediately made an impact.
The 5-foot-10 off-guard started all season, and led the 18-5 Blazers in assists and made threes.
Although he's a shooting guard, Squiers told PHI, that his first priority is to find an open teammate.
“I like to look for the open guy first, and when the shots there, take it,” said Squiers
PHI's No. 42 prospect from 2016, Squiers will play for the Iowa Mavericks this summer to improve his game.
What will he work on?
“I think my dribbling skills is one of my weaknesses that I can work on,” Squiers told PHI.
He has not recieived any recruitment yet, just some questionaires from Briar Cliff and Clarke, he'll work on gaining notoriety with the Mavericks this summer.
