On Sunday, Liberty picked up a commitment from class of 2023 prospect Colin Porter. The 5’11”, 160 pound point guard from Ashland, Kentucky is the first commitment for the Flames in that class. This past summer, Liberty also picked up a commitment from class of 2022 6’8″ forward Zach Cleveland. Porter and Cleveland are currently the only two committed players from future classes that head coach Ritchie McKay has.
Liberty offered Port in late June after taking an unofficial visit to campus. He committed on the heels of his official visit to Lynchburg this past weekend. He was originally scheduled to take on official to Liberty on Sept. 17 but it got pushed back. Porter has a total of eight Division I offers choosing Liberty over Marshall, Akron, Morehead State, Lipscomb, Western Carolina, Western Kentucky, and Radford. He recently took an official visit to WKU.
This past season as a sophomore, Porter averaged 16.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 2.0 steals per game at Paul G. Blazer High School. He has started for his varsity team as a freshman and a sophomore.Porter helped lead his AAU 17U team to the Adidas 3SSB Championship game this summer.
This coming weekend, Liberty is scheduled to host George Washington III for an official visit as part of the school’s homecoming weekend. Washington is a 6’2″ guard from Louisville, Kentucky where he attends Christian Academy. He is rated as a 4-star prospect by some outlets, including ESPN where he is ranked as the No. 24 prospect nationally in the Class of 2023. His offer list includes Louisville, Ohio State, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Western Kentucky, and Auburn.
