Coleman named Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Notre Dame, UNLV and NC State as his finalists, in no particular order. The news was reported by Brian Snow of

The 6-foot-3 Coleman is rated the No. 30 player nationally by the 247Composite. He’s averaging 15.2 points per game and shot 50 percent from behind the 3-point line for All-Ohio Red in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League. All-Ohio Red will play in July’s EYBL finals at the Peach Jam.

Indiana was the first school to offer Coleman a scholarship before he entered his freshman season at Cathedral in Indianapolis.

    I believe Michigan is ahead of us with this kid.

    You see a 6″3 guy now days who plays SG and you think I wonder if he can play point? It’s crazy, but the shooting guard position probably has the fewest young stars in the NBA. The ones the league does have like Brad Beal and Klay Thompson, are 6″5+…..Orlando wanted to make Oladipo a point because he was “only” 6″4… Anyway, I say that to say, as a top 30 guy, you are thinking you could make the league one day, you better go somewhere that will make you play point….you aren’t getting drafted as a SG

    Agree UM fits him nicely.(another Lavert).as does IU. Not sure what this kid is looking for..but he will make somebody a mighty fine backcourt player. Our depth at guard probably hurts TC’s chances of landing this kid.

    Beal is 6’3 in high heels

  • Alford Bailey

    Thats my fear. UM and MSU have developed a pretty nice pipeline in N. Indiana.

    Word around the Laporte/South Bend area is that ND and MI are the front runners with Brey making strong inroads.
