Chris Colvin Talks Recruiting

Chris Colvin, a 6-foot-3 junior guard from Chicago (IL) Whitney Young, is one of the top guards in the Midwest and has received recruiting interest from Minnesota. Colvin played with the Mac Irvin Fire AAU program in the Main event in Las Vegas and GoldenSports.Net caught up with Colvin to learn the latest on his recruitment.

Chris Colvin helped lead Whitney Young to a 25-5 mark this past season as they were 9-1 in the Chicago Public Red League. The Dolphins were a No. 1 seed in the playoffs before being upset by No. 11 Mt. Carmel, 58-52.

Colvin played for a team loaded with backcourt talent. A.J. Rompza, a 5-foot-10 senior, signed with Central Florida. Colvin is joined in the senior class by Marcus Jordan, son of NBA legend Michael. The team returns two talented juniors in Anthony Johnson, James Reynolds and Ahmad Starks and highly ranked sophomore Sam Thompson.

Colvin said that he has a current top five.

"USC, Florida State, Kentucky, Gonzaga and Memphis," he said.

The first four schools have offered a scholarship and he is still hearing from Minnesota and Providence.

His father Ike Colvin previously told GoldenSports.Net that his son is a talented guard.

"He is a true point guard. He sees the court well and has excellent court vision," he said. "His shot is being developed as we speak."

Colvin is working hard on improving on his game, according to his father.

"He is working on his jump shot," he said. "He is working on his moves and on his drills."
