Collin Goss transferred to Alexandria (Va.) St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School for his junior season.
While at Woodbridge (Va.) Forest Park, Goss, a 6-foot-10, 200-pound big man, spent majority of his time facing the rim. Now, Goss is working on his low post game.
“At my old school I was more of a scorer from the outside,” Goss admitted. “My coach is trying to help me have a complete game and have me post up more.”
“I’m most comfortable form the short post and on the perimeter,” he added. “But this year I’m getting more comfortable in the post using hook shots and baby hooks and facing up.”
On Saturday, Goss scored seven points, grabbed five rebounds and blocked a handful of shots. While the numbers were fairly pedestrian, Goss impressed with his mobility, touch and ability to play inside and out.
College coaches have been impressed with Goss’ progression as well.
“I hold an offer from [George Washington],” Goss said. “Then interest has been Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Holy Cross and [George] Mason and Boston College.”
Goss hasn’t taken any recent visits, but is hoping to check out a few schools soon.
“I’m supposed to go up to visit Boston College,” he said. “I was going to go up there and then Boston U, Holy Cross and then Virginia Tech I was going to take a visit up there pretty soon.”
Are any schools prioritizing Goss?
“The Virginia Tech coaches are texting me a lot,” Goss said. “Our coach sends out game film after every game and he’s always saying good job.”
Goss plays for Team Takeover on the travel team circuit.
