"I wasn't a super productive high school player, so therefore I didn't get recruited by a ton of schools. I only had two offers—one from Hofstra, one from the University of Missouri," Colston said. "Missouri kinda came into the fold late, and I had already taken my visit to Hofstra and had seen what the coaches and players ahead of me had to offer. I knew I wanted to have an opportunity to play [right away].

"Hofstra was my best opportunity to develop at my own pace and play sooner rather than later. Going to Missouri, Big 12 at the time, possibly redshirting and sitting and maybe getting a chance to play my junior or senior year. So I chose Hofstra and it worked out for me. The perceived biggest opportunity isn't always the biggest opportunity at the end of the day. I think in the recruiting process, a lot of people get tied up in the big-name schools and being able to select that hat on commitment day. But it's more about understanding where you're at and where you want to go."
