Carr, 6'3 195, helped lead his team to the class 4A state championship game before losing to Greg Monroe and Helen Cox. "We lost a lot of players off that team so I will have to step my game up even more this year and be a leader", said Carr.
As a junior Carr averaged 17.5 points per game and 8 rebounds a game. Against Salmen in the semi-finals, Carr scored 18 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in the teams 58-45 victory.
"Coach Juluke and Coach Early both have been recruiting me since the summer of my junior season. I feel real comfortable around the ULM coaching staff and they feel like I can come in and play some early minutes for them as a freshman".
"I am going to go up for a visit sometime this summer and take a look at the campus and facilities", said Carr.
We caught up with Walker head coach Brian Gibson and he had this to say about Carr. "Colby is a excellent on the ball defender, he is very tough minded. Colby is a very mature, polished player who can hit the jump shot or take it to the basket and score, he is a complete player. I feel like he is one of the top players in the state of Louisiana this year. ULM jumped on him early because he is getting a lot of early looks from different schools".
"Me and Coach Juluke go a way back", said Gibson. I coached Harold when he played on my AAU team. He is doing an excellent job for ULM and he is the big reason why Colby is going to ULM. I am excited for both sides and Colby is already qualified as a student athlete".
