Notre Dame added their second commitment in the Class of 2014 on Monday morning, as Bonzie Colson announced that he will play for the Fighting Irish as a collegian.
Colson, who is a three-star recruit that ranks 146th in Rivals’ top 150, was one of the more intriguing prospects in the class. Standing just 6-foot-5, Colson is much shorter than the ideal height for a four-man. He’s not an explosive athlete, either, which led to some debate about what level he could eventually play at.
And while his physical limitations will likely put a ceiling on his upside, there is a lot to like about Colson as a player. He’s smart and fundamentally sound, he’s got excellent length to counteract his height, and he understands positioning and angles. Colson may not be an early-entry candidate, but he’s a winner and a competitor, precisely the kind of program guy that will spend five years making Notre Dame better.
Colson is the second commitment that Mike Brey has earned in the class, as four-star forward Martin Geben pledged to the Irish last month.
