LAURINBURG INSTITUTE COACH CHRIS CHANEY ON COLY: "Coly will be a great player at Xavier. I expect him to contribute a lot beginning his freshman year. He had a great final year for us. He brings it every night and is very consistent. He has a nice touch. He rebounds on both ends of the court. He blocks shots. What really sets him apart is he works so hard. He has a great work ethic. He will get better and better."
