Lobos Lead For Santos

Colby Santos, a standout from Marion (Mass.) Tabor Academy, has himself a visit set up and a host of schools that are interested in his services.

Colby Santos made a name for himself on the high school level at Tabor Academy and the traveling team level with BABC as a shooter. The 6-foot-4 guard, once thought to be a shooting guard in college, is making the position transition to the point.

"I think I've just finally adapted to it," Santos said. "At first I was nervous about playing it. Now, it gets me more excited to make a good pass than scoring."

Clearly, there are some adjustments to make. "It's so much different than guarding a shooter. You can give them room because most aren't really a threat to shoot it. I've been working on getting faster and quicker; I'll be alright."

Santos is committed to play at the highest level and signing early. "I'm definitely going to sign early. It'll be the first time that I ever get to play basketball stress free. I won't have to worry that this guy is watching me. I'll still have to prove that I'm at the top of my game and there will still be pressure. I'll just like it a whole lot better.

"I'd like to play at the highest level. I feel like I can play. It doesn't matter distance wise. I want a good school in general, academically and stuff."

Right now, New Mexico has the inside track with Santos. He's set up an official visit to see the Lobos the weekend of September 17th. "They've been involved since right after the Peach Jam. They've been calling and they offered."

Massachusetts, James Madison, Drexel, Old Dominion, Florida and Arkansas have shown interest. The Minutemen have also offered.
