After an impressive sophomore season at Blake, and an offseason flourishing on the grassroots circuit, Kobe Colston is quickly becoming a name to know in Maryland’s 2017 class.
The 5-foot-11 point guard has started hearing from college programs, and though his recruitment is still in its infancy, the talented point guard has seen mail come in from four Division I programs.
“Right now I have interest from Rider, William & Mary, Colgate, and St. Joseph’s,” said Colston. “It’s just mail right now, and recently I’ve gotten the most mail from Rider, I’d say they’ve sent me the most.”
“I know have to keep playing hard so schools can keep noticing me and give me an offer.”
This spring and summer Colston played with Maryland Attack, and says working on his defense was a priority.
“I used to not have a lot of defensive intensity, and then towards the end of the AAU season I really picked it up and I started to get noticed for my defense,” he said.
“My strengths are attacking the basket off the dribble, I can extend my range out to the 3-point line and knock down open shots. And then when it matters most that’s when I play the hardest defense.”
Last season as sophomore Colston was outstanding, averaging 13 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds, and 4 steals per game. This season as a junior he’ll take on more of a leadership role with the Bengals.
“I’ll have a lot more shots to take this season because I’ll be a leader on the team. So I’m going to take that role and run with it, and make sure I keep my team poised,” said Colston. “I’d definitely like to get to the state tournament and just improve on my stats from last year.”
