Warner Robins, Ga., wide receiver eyeing the Hilltoppers

WKU among favorites for Georgia WR Amari Colbert

Talented wide receiver Amari Colbert has a pair of schools taking the lead for his eventual commitment.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect from Houston County in Warner Robins, Ga., has helped his team begin the 2016 season undefeated.

“It's going really good, we're off to a 6-0 start,” said Colbert, who has 37 catches for 658 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Western Kentucky has extended Colbert a scholarship offer, as has Ohio, Old Dominion, Mercer and Jacksonville State.  WKU assistant Bryan Ellis remains in frequent contact with the big-play receiver.

“Coach Ellis says he loves my playmaker ability and my size,” Colbert told WKU Insider.  “He says I'm the guy to come in and make plays and he likes that.”

While still planning to make visits before making his college decision, there are two programs that have risen to the surface.

“WKU and Old Dominion,” he said.  “Both will let the ball fly and are telling me I could play really early.”
