Player: Kensington Colston
Class of 2024
School: Grandbury High School, TX
Colston is one of the most electrifying stars I saw all summer. His high energy and hustle are first-rate. He can put on a clinic in a flash on both ends. He is cat-quick and explosive off the bounce. Once Colston sets his mind to get downhill, it’s game over for the defense. That’s not overhyping, he is that fast and crafty with sick handles. He is a strong triple-threat scoring option as well.
Another dynamic skill is his jaw-dropping passes. It is a dazzling show to see him thread needles no one else even considers trying.' He has an incredible offensive IQ and of course, the board work and defense. The numbers don’t lie, Colston does it all. You would think there are always at least three of him out there because he is everywhere it seems.
Last season, Colston averaged 15.4pts, 5rebs, and 6asts. He took that to another planet in the AAU session, as he averaged 18pts, 9.4rebs, and 7.4asts. That sets the stage for a breakout upcoming season that I will be sure to see in real-time. Colston has set his goals for the upcoming season to lead his team on a historic tournament run that will set the record books for years to come for this small school.
He wants to win District MVP and pursue a championship. Coaches should know Colston is ultra-competitive and a true leader, and with his electrifying talent, no one will impact your program more than this young star. He battled D1 talent all summer and still excelled. Don’t let the smile fool you, this player is the truth.
