Fargo Davies Boys Hoops Standout Collin Larson Commits To Concordia

FARGO – Another boys basketball standout in the Eastern Dakota Conference has decided where he’ll play his college basketball.

Fargo Davies senior Collin Larson gave his commitment to Concordia this weekend.

The 6-foot-2 guard is averaging 16.3 points per game for the Eagles through four games this season and that average ranks sixth in the EDC in games played through Sunday.

Larson is a shooter and has proven very accurate beyond the 3-point line. Through four games, Larson has connected for 10 3-pointers.

Larson was the top returning 3-point shooter in Class A after connecting for 64 3-pointers in the 2013-14 season in which Davies won the Class A state championship.

Concordia’s roster features several former Fargo-Moorhead metro prep players. Larson will join Brady Syverson (Fargo North), Dylan Alderman (Fargo Shanley) Matt Ellingson (Moorhead) and Austin Nelson (Moorhead) on the Cobbers.

Larson is also the second 3-point sharpshooter from the EDC to commit to a Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference program in back-to-back seasons.

Former Fargo Shanley standout Patrick Strom is now playing at St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minn. Strom has appeared in all eight of St. John’s games this season and has made one start. Strom is averaging 9.0 ppg and is 18 of 39 from beyond the arc for the Johnnies.

Davies is 3-1 through four games played and has been receiving votes in the weekly Class A boys basketball poll.
