Colbey Ross, an all-state guard from Eaglecrest, committed to play basketball at Pepperdine on Monday evening.

He announced his decision on Twitter, thanking his family and coaches, and saying, in part, that "it was a tough decision" but that he was "proud to announce I have decided to commit to play college basketball at Pepperdine University."

Ross, who is 6-foot-1, was named first-team all-state in Class 5A last season after averaging 18.6 points, 4,6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 blocks per game. He was also named the Gatorade player of the year after helping Eaglecrest finish runner-up to Overland in 5A.

A 2017 graduate, Ross is just one of three all-state players returning in 5A next season.
