Coleman plans to visit Arizona

DaJuan Coleman is considered to be one of the best players in the country and Arizona is treating him as such. Now, it appears that Arizona could possibly get a visit from the five-star down the road.

At 6-foot-9, 280 pounds, it's very hard to miss Dajuan Coleman out on the court. His game makes him even harder to miss, as he compares his game to one of the NBA's top players.

"I'm more of a face up big man, and I battle for tough rebounds," Coleman said. "I would compare my game to Zack Randolph."

It's no surprise that as the number four player in the class of 2012, Coleman has the top programs across the nation pursuing him. However, he has not made any progress on sorting through those schools.

"I haven't really cut my list down yet," Coleman said. "After the summer I think I'm going to cut my list down and take my visits in the fall. I don't have any favorites right now."

One school that has recently picked up its recruitment of Coleman is Arizona, led by assistant coach Book Richardson who is working to establish a relationship with the Dewitt (NY) Jamesville-Dewitt High School prospect.

"The relationship that Book and I have is pretty good," Coleman said. "He's called me a few times and we've talked. It's pretty good and it's getting stronger."

The focus of Richardson's efforts has been focused around trying to get Coleman to visit Arizona officially, and it appears as if it might pay dividends.

"I think that I will visit Arizona," Coleman said. "But I don't think it will be to the fall."

It also appears that while Richardson has done a good job of selling the program, Coleman has done a little bit of research on his own about Arizona.

"I like how they run their program and how they get up and down," Coleman said. "They have a nice offense and they get everyone the ball. I like the coaching staff so far and I just plan on visiting them."
