Scouting Report

Taja Colbert is an extremely talented class of 2021 basketball prospect that attends Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She spent her Freshman and Sophomore years at Central Dauphin East High School.

Taja Colbert is a flat-out gamer! She is truly what you would hope to see when superior basketball IQ, unique athleticism, great handle for the ball, outstanding awareness /instinct, and tremendous work ethic are all rolled into one.

Taja’s IQ, court vision and great decision making are what coaches love to see in a point guard. However, her athleticism, knack for penetrating and finishing over taller defenders and ability to shoot a very reliable pull up jump shot off of the dribble makes the decision between playing her at the point guard or shooting guard spot very difficult.

Taja is a tenacious defender and always finds a way to get steals on the ball or by anticipating passes by offensive opponents. Has really developed into an excellent on ball defender. Taja is an extremely hard worker! She is committed to success on the court and puts in countless hours at Track, CrossFit training and basketball skill development in order to continue to improve. Taja makes time for this without neglecting her school work, family or faith. She is an honor roll student with a 3.0 GPA.

Taja is a great kid and an explosive high school athlete that possesses all the tools on and off the court to make me believe she will carry her current success over into the basketball program of a college one day. She projects as a solid class of 2021 collegiate basketball prospect. Certainly an athlete that you want on your radar in the 2021 class.
