Colin Falls, a 6-4, 195 pound shooting guard from Loyola Academy in Wilamette, Illinois, will not compete anymore this summer. Falls, who played some games this week at the Super Showcase, was upended and landed on his hip. He returned during yesterday's game but quickly was pulled after he was limping badly.
"I didn't hurt my back," Falls said. "But my hip and leg hurt. I didn't have it x-rayed yet but a friend of my father told me after examining me it was about 30 percent strength. So I am going to rest for the remainder of the summer."
Falls, who has already given a commitment to Notre Dame, has really progressed nicely in his overall game. A year later after watching Falls while playing with the Illinois Warriors, Colin goes to the basket much more aggressively. And when he gets to the free throw line, Colin doesn't miss.
With these positives working for him, he is likely to score many points on the college level. Assistant coach Anthony Solomon was on hand to view Falls sit on the bench today.
A terrific long range three point shooter, Falls averaged 24 points, 5.5 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block per game this past season at Loyola Academy.
As productive as he is in the classroom, Falls is also equally proficient in the classroom, where he said he carries a 3.8 GPA and has scored a 26 on the ACT.
