It was a year ago RivalsHoops.com watched shooting guard Colin Falls, a 6-4, 195 pound shooting guard from Loyola Academy in Wilamette, Illinois, at the Super Showcase. And a year later his game has vastly improved. Falls 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. Head coach Mike Brey and assistant coach Anthony Solomon were both on hand.
Last night though, Falls was hipchecked to the ground and rolled around on the floor in pain. He got up, went to the bench, and sat for about 10 minutes. When he returned in the second quarter, he was limping badly. No word yet if he had that back/hip looked at by a doctor. We will keep you posted.
Several other high majors were evaluating him this summer, including DePaul, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Stanford, Boston College, and Marquette.
He had taken unofficial trips already to Northwestern, Notre Dame, Marquette and DePaul.
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.
