"I wasn't trying to make a decision," Coleman admitted. "I was just going down for a visit to see how things were and it turned out to be the best and I loved it."
The Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson standout, who picked UAB over strong interest from Central Florida and Murray State, said the visit put his interest in UAB over the top.
"Coach invited us to his house and the players make you feel like you are on the team already," he continued. "The players all felt like family and it wasn't too far away from home. Theres a good education level there too."
Coleman is rated as a three-star prospect on Scout.com.
