Report: Colds Chooses A School

A report in a local newspaper states that St. Ray's Gerald Colds has made a decision ...

Gerald Colds, a 5-foot-11 lead guard from St. Raymond's High School in the Bronx, N.Y., made a verbal commitment to Drexel, according to a report in the New York Daily News.

Colds had also considered Fresno State, St. Bonaventure, UNLV, Rhode Island, Northeastern, adn Seton Hall at one time during his recruiting process.

Reporter Brian Towey outlined in his previous article why Drexel was so strong: "It's not a surprise to see the East Coast programs- particularly Drexel, with assistant coach Tony Chiles' ties to the CHSAA- chasing Colds..."

Colds is considered more of a scoring guard who knocked down close to 16 points a game for St. Raymond's Head Coach Oliver Antigua.

Scouting Report From Brian Towey: Colds is elusive off the dribble, a tough guy to keep in front of you. He doesn't have overwhelming size for a guard, but has a terrific wingspan, and the ability to skirt past defenders and finish, a wiry slasher who can get to the rim. He's also a legitimate perimeter threat.

Colds did state he was being recruited as a point guard. So he has a year to make improvements in that part of his individual game.
