Austin Colbert '13

Scouting Reports: May 2011 – Colbert’s an active 6’8? forward who can go from baseline to baseline, completing plays with a flourish above the rim. He also showed off some solid interior moves in half-court sets, although this (along with physical strength) is something he’ll improve upon as he gains more experience (Raphielle Johnson at NIKE EYBL LA).

June 2009 – One of the next high-major products out of the famed St. Pat’s program, Colbert is very long and lanky, but showed outstanding potential for when he gets older. He rebounds the ball very well, boxing out and grabbing the ball off the backboard. Furthermore, he keeps the ball high, not allowing smaller guards to steal the ball. Defensively, he needs to be more aggressive, as he did not attempt to block shots very often. Offensively, he showed the ability to finish in the fast break as well as off of put-backs. Although he is young, he got good position down low, but needs to develop some post moves. He’s certainly a name to watch out for in a couple of years (Jeff Borzello at HBC Metro Showcase).
