Saint Andrew's star basketball players Bonzie Colson and Henry Bolton committed to Division one schools on Monday.

Colson, the son of the Rhody legend will play for Mike Brey at Notre Dame.

Point guard Bolton, originally from Portsmouth elected Utah State., which is one of the better teams in the Mountain West.

"A lot of people wanted me to go to URI because my dad went there but I did not think that was the best fit for me," Colson said. "That's what you have to look for when you look for a college so I just went to the school that I thought was the best fit. I just think it is a great atmosphere to be in and I can contribute a lot."

Said Bolton, "My mom moved to the west coast so we tried to reach out to schools that were near her and that happened to be one that was really a contender in the NCAA."
