    6'4" 205 lbs

    Athletic, slasher type more than a pure shooter. Pretty strong. This one came as a surprise to people because he was expected to fit well in Pitino's system.

    Averaged almost 9 ppg and then had a big game to knock UCLA out of the Dance this year.

    Also, former Mr. Basketball in Minnesota with deep family ties to the Gopher program.

    Of note: Tad and CU were looking closely at him the year we signed Mayor and Ski, although we never offered.

    Looks that way.

    fwiw, CSU did offer Coleman out of HS. Different coach, though.

    Why do I get the feeling you're trying to tell us something here?

    Not this time. Just idle chatter to pass a Friday afternoon.

    I guess I can stop checking Barzil every 5 minutes then?

    Haha. Yeah. Kind of waiting for a reaction from Teets on this one.

    Here's another Coleman that's available. Signed with Louisville out of hs, didn't qualify academically. Went to Marshall, scored and rebounded pretty well as a true Freshman, but had an attitude problem, and was eventually kicked off the team for texting from the bench. Went to jc, and allegedly cleaned up his act. Hell of a player, and looking for a home, but... I dunno if you want him on your team.
