Colby Leifson

Leifson was added to the roster at the beginning of August.

A 6-foot-4 guard from Georgia, Leifson plans on serving a LDS mission after this season.

It doesn’t seem like Leifson will play a particularly large role this season because the Cougar backcourt is a crowded one.

But, he is a skilled shooter. He knocked fown 93 three-pointers at a 41 percent clip as a senior.

He was also recruited by High Point, Wofford, Gardner Webb and Tennessee Tech.
