Coleman Transfers, Recruitment Holds Steady

Justin Coleman won't sign early, but he's still in the news at the early signing period comes to a close. Coleman is heading to a new school.

Justin Coleman is on the move.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound wing that emerged during NBA camp recently transfered to Huntington (W.V.) Prep.

"We are thrilled to have him obviously," Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford told "We had a good team with out him. This obviously puts us in the top tier."

Since getting to campus, Fulford has watched him work out a few times. He's been impressed with his ability to shoot the basketball.

"From a skill standpoint I didn't realize he shoots the ball as well as he does," Fulford said. "He can really shoot, which actually shocked me a little bit because I hadn't seen it before."

Fulford said he's already fielded phone calls from Arkansas and Kentucky regarding Coleman. The No. 4 small forward in the 2010 class told Fulford he's also considering Connecticut, Mearquette, Kansas, Xavier and Providence.

There's never been a question about Coleman's talent, but there have been some worries about his academic situation. According to Fulford he has a chance to get it done.

"If he really wants to get it done I think he can get it done," he said. "The ball is in his hands to take care of his academics. He's had several opportunities and I think we are his last option to get to get it done academically."

Coleman, a five-star prospect, is ranked No. 24 overall.
