PREVIOUS EVALUATIONS BY MIKE SULLIVAN AND FRANK MANTESTA:

STRENGTHS OF COLLIER'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Devon is a player to watch seriously over the next two seasons. Consistency is the key to his game right now. As he matures and begins to understand how to utilize his size and athletic skills, his game should be one that mid to high division one programs will like.

COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST: Rutgers, Virginia Tech, Villanova, Florida State, Seton Hall, Pittsburgh, Hofstra, Fordham, Manhattan, St. John's, Massachusetts

GOALS FOR DEVON COLLIER: Collier has a wonderful opportunity to learn from perhaps the best high school coach in the high school game right now in Bobby Hurley, Sr. Collier will improve in his low post defense if he digests Hurley's rules.

By the time he finishes up at St. Anthony's, Collier should be a solid high division one prospect.
