HD Video: Jalen Coleman Highlights at Best of the Midwest and adidas Invitational

Indiana’s recruiting work in the class of 2015 was confirmed on Friday when the Hoosiers extended a scholarship offer to Jalen Coleman, a 6-foot-2, 155-pound guard that will attend Indianapolis Cathedral next fall.

Kyle Neddenriep of The Indianapolis Star was the first to report the offer.

Tom Crean and the IU coaching staff tracked Coleman closely during the first 10-day July evaluation period, which included games at the adidas Invitational and the Best of the Midwest.

Coleman, who turned 15 on Friday, joined the Eric Gordon All-Stars before the start of the July evaluation period.

The Cathedral guard is playing alongside Bryant McIntosh, Perry Poindexter and Sean Sellers on the 15-and-under team that is coached by Brian Keeton.

Coleman told a group of reporters at the adidas Invitational that he was already receiving interest from Indiana, Michigan State and Purdue.

Inside the Hall was in attendance at the adidas Invitational and the Best of the Midwest and we’ve compiled over six minutes of Coleman video which is available after the jump.

    It’d be great to get some ’15 committments this summer, and I really like what this kid brings to the table. He’s definitely still got a couple inches left to grow, and already has great ball and body control.

    Very very happy with this offer. Coleman is going into a good program at Cathedral, seems like a very solid player to be so young. Awesome. BTW it is really hot in Memphis!

    Isn’t Jaquan Lyle on campus this weekend? Be nice to close the deal on him because he brings something entirely different than any other players we have or commits. He has a little Magic in his game and him commiting now would facilitate’s Coach’s recruiting. Maybe Jaquan realizes this now and he commits. I like his game and he would proliferate under Coach. I’m not concerned with anything about Lyle except he might not be a four year playa.

    Nice game Jalen!

    Edit. I quess jaquan isn’t in Bloomington this weekend, dang. Jalen is very impressive and has a nose for ther ball. Crean is a worker and has an eye for talent.

    This kid moves so well.  He is quick to the ball on rebounds and meets the ball on passes.  like the way he plays the game…smart and hustles.

    Good to see Crean getting to this young talent early.

    I like his potential. Looks like he develop into a really good combo guard, but who is # 14 on the same team? He looks really good too.

    I believe he wears 34 in blue and 14 in White. Maybe the other way around.
