South Bay athlete picking up steam

Over the past five years Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne has consistently delivered players to the D-I level and once again D-I schools will be showing up on the Narbonne campus this spring. One player in particular is getting a lot of attention and this player has solid bloodlines.
The player in question is running back/strong safety/outside linebacker Major Colbert (6-0, 190, 4.5).
If the name of Colbert sounds familiar to you that's because he's former USC standout and now Carolina Panther wide receiver Keary Colbert's cousin.
Colbert earned all-league and second-team all-area honors as a junior after he rushed for 1,116 yards for 12 touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball, Colbert racked up approximately 90 tackles, seven sacks, three fumble recoveries and two interceptions.
"I can see at sometime during Major's college career that he could play on both sides of the ball," Narbonne coach Craig Armstrong said. "He has that type of athleticism and versatility."
"What Major plays on the next level is just a matter of what the college recruiting him is looking for," Armstrong said. "If a school is looking for a running back they can very well take Major."
"If the college needs a defensive back, Major can fit that bill," Armstrong said. "Or the schools can bring him in as an athlete because he can do that, too."
Colbert is getting letters from basically everybody. Oregon, Oregon State UCLA, UNLV, Colorado State and San Diego State are just a sampling of the schools showing him interest.
Colbert had a nice showing at the NIKE combine at West Los Angeles College where he ran an impressive 4.19 shuttle and will attend the NIKE Camp to be held in Palo Alto in May.
Colbert will be a three-year starter for Narbonne.
