Stay patient and positive. That’s the approach Colton Gorski is taking when it comes to his college recruitment. The cerebral 6-foot-2, 190-pound guard from Sandy feels good about what he was able to do with his game this summer with AAU basketball and camps and he’s hoping it pays off with some college options after his senior season is done.
“I was just thinking about this the other day, that between my first game and my last game I grew a lot,” Gorski said. “I grew a lot of confidence and the summer helped me with everything, my ball-handling, my knowledge of scoring. My defense improved a lot and just knowing how to score – timing, shot clock, and all that – that all really helped me.”
Gorski was able to show some of this growth at the PrepHoops Top 250 Expo last month, where he really dominated at times with his scoring and floor leadership. The hope is that the improvement will now pay off in some college offers. Gorski noted that there hasn’t been any yet, but that he’s been in contact with Redlands and Portland CC. He visited Redlands over the summer after attending elite camp at Point Loma. Gorski knows a lot will be riding on this season but he is confident that it will.
“My team – I expect us to be pretty high as we have pretty much everybody back,” Gorski said. “we’ve all been in the gym a lot and we’ve all played in the summer, so we are pretty solid and we should go far. yself, ?I want to set my goals high like First Team All-League, All-State if I can. But I just want to go out there and play as hard as I can and hope for the best.”
Gorski currently ranks as the #37 player in the PrepHoops Oregon Class of 2019 rankings.
