  • Colbert to Take Official to Villanova

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Having taken an unofficial visit to Villanova Friday night for their Hoops Mania event, Austin Colbert will be back in a few days on an official.

    The 6-foot-9 Gill St. Bernard’s power forward will trip to the Big East school Thursday-Saturday on what could be his last official visit.

    “It was good,” Colbert told SNY.tv. “It was a lot of fun. Nova did a good job with everything. They even started a new tradition last night. They threw steamers after the first basketball.”

    Colbert had previously cut his list to Illinois, Miami and Seton Hall, but recently announced on his blog that he would add Villanova as well.

    “I added them because I’ve known the coaching staff for a while and they have expressed a lot of interest in me,” he wrote. “At Villanova I could play in the frontcourt with Josh [Hart] and Kris [Jenkins] and even possibly earn some good minutes. Villanova is also a great school academically and I’m trying to schedule a visit there.”

    Colbert says he may end up announcing on his birthday Nov. 7.
