Colter, who is tied with Forestville guard Juwan Cole (21.6 ppg) as the county’s leading scorer, is a smaller but strong slashing point guard. The 5-foot-10 senior said he holds offers from DePaul and High Point.

He has also received interest from schools such as George Mason, George Washington, Pittsburgh, Quinnipiac and Stony Brook.

Colter, who has a 3.0 GPA but is waiting for his SAT and ACT test scores, said he would wait until the end of the season for potentially more offers.

Seniors Michael Graham, an athletic 6-foot-5 athletic forward, and senior Damante McNeill, a strong 6-foot-4 forward, hold no scholarship offers. McNeill said he was looking at some junior colleges for next season.

“They’re just waiting to see what happens down the stretch,” Largo Coach Lew Howard said. “I tell them, ‘Play consistent and get us where we need to be, you’re going to be recruited, you’re going to be seen.’”
