Devin Coleman, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound shooting guard/small forward from Friends Central High School in Wynnewood, Penn., continues to see momentum in his recruiting process after having a terrific summer.

Coleman, who played at several events with Paul Gripper's Team Phenom AAU program, saw some interest from Notre Dame of the Big East Conference over the past 48 hours. Coach Gripper told us that Devin had a wonderful summer and has several offers.

"La Salle, St. Bonaventure, Temple, St. Joe's, Drexel, Delaware, and Siena have all offered Devin," said Coach Gripper.

We previously reported that schools like Georgia Tech, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Penn State, Stanford, Georgetown, West Virginia, Virginia, Seton Hall, and Florida State were interested.
