St. Andrew's Colson commits to Notre Dame
By Brendan Hall
St. Andrew's (R.I.) senior power forward Bonzie Colson Jr. verbally committed to Notre Dame this morning at an all-school meeting, per ESPN recruiting analyst Adam Finkelstein.
The 6-foot-5 Colson, a New Bedford resident, is a four-star recruit and the No. 25 overall power forward in the 2014 class according to ESPNU. He chose the Fighting Irish over a slew of offers, including Pitt, Miami, UConn, Florida State, Georgetown, Minnesota, Temple and Rhode Island (where his father, Bonzie Sr., starred in the late 1980's).
“It was just the right fit for me on and off the court,” Colson told Finkelstein. “They have a history of having had great undersized four-men and they know how to use them throughout the game.”
