Making his own name
Most in the Midwest and around the country are familiar with Jalen Coleman-Lands. The four-star shooting guard is committed to Illinois and is one of the top players in the class of 2015, and now his younger brother is looking to make an impact. In the class of 2017, Isaiah Coleman-Lands is a developing point guard at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere, and has seen his game grow a lot in the past 12 months. “I expect to keep getting better and progressing,” said Coleman-Lands. “I have been working on getting more consistent shooting the ball and also I have been working defensively to be better.” At around 5-foot-11 and 155 pounds, Coleman-Lands isn’t the biggest guard around, but he does have a good feel for the game and is excellent at attacking the rim and making plays. Now college coaches are taking notice. Recruiting wise Coleman-Lands has a scholarship offer from Creighton, and then also is hearing from New Mexico, Northwestern, DePaul, and Vanderbilt. At this point Coleman-Lands says he isn’t focused on his recruitment, but he has learned a lot about the process from his brother. “I learned a lot from Jalen,” he explained. “He is a very highly rated recruit so I learned from him to improve your game and not worry too much about the recruiting until you need to.” For now Coleman-Lands, a three-star prospect, says he is focused on helping his team accomplish their one big goal of the season. “We want to win a national championship, that is our only goal and that is what we are trying to do,” said Coleman-Lands.
