ULM Basketball Has 1st 2009 Commitment

Just like Brandon Williams for the class of 2008, the Warhawks have struck early and snagged their first commitment for the class of 2009.

The ULM Warhawks have picked up their first 2009 basketball commitment in O.P. Walker shooting guard Colby Carr.

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".
