Coleman is a 6’6″ PF from Trinity Episcopal School in Richmond, VA. He is the #40 overall player (#7 PF) in the Class of 2020.
In an interview with VTScoop.com, Coleman told Dwight Vick that one of the three players he watches is none other than former Blue Devil J.J. Redick:
“It’s not really because I play like him, but with the craft that he has, how he works on his craft, how he perfects it. He’s a perfectionist, which is how I am. He really tries to do everything right.”
He also said:
“Lastly, Coach Krzyzewski and Duke. Coach James has been my main recruiter. I talked to Coach Krzyzewski a good amount of times. He just talked to me on how I can be a winner on and off the court. He tells me how I can really impact their program and help to put them over the top because I am a winner and he sees what I can bring to the table.”
Coach K has also compared him to Justise Winslow and Amile Jefferson because of his versatility.
Coleman joins Jeremy Roach, Jalen Johnson, and DJ Steward as the current members of Duke’s 2020 recruiting class.
