The Cal Poly men's basketball team added a third frontcourt member to its 2018-19 incoming class on Tuesday afternoon with the announcement from ninth-year head coach Joe Callero and the Mustangs Athletics Department that 6-6 forward Kyle Colvin (San Luis Obispo, CA/Mission Prep HS) has been admitted to the university and will join the program for next season.
Colvin, the San Luis Obispo Tribune's County Boys Basketball Player of the Year selection for 2017-18, averaged 23 points, 12 rebounds and three assists per game as a senior last season. He reached the 25-point scoring plateau 11 times last year. The four-year letterwinner also helped Mission Prep HS to four successive PAC 8 League titles.
"Kyle is a hard-working and dedicated student-athlete," Callero said. "He comes from a winning program with excellent coaching. He's a versatile player and his skill set reminds us of former Mustang David Hanson because he can shoot the three-pointer, score on the block and rebound. Kyle's physical and mental toughness fits our culture."
Colvin is the son of former Mustang forward Kurt Colvin (1986-90), who ranks 18th in Cal Poly program history with 445 career rebounds.
Colvin makes up the fourth member of Cal Poly's 2018-19 incoming class alongside 6-10 forward Tuukka Jaakkola (Helsinki, Finland/Helsinki Basketball Academy), 6-7 forward Daxton Carr (Pocatello, Idaho/Highland HS) and 6-3 guard Junior Ballard (Stockton, Calif./Modesto Christian School).
