Devin Coleman, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound shooting guard/small forward from Friends Central High School in Wynnewood, Penn., has seen his recruiting process pick up since the summer months have melted away.

Coleman, who played at several AAU basketball events with head coach Paul Gripper's Team Phenom AAU program over the summer, strengthened his recruiting position by showcasing his offensive skills.

Notre Dame has been one high major school that has shown some serious interest. In fact, coach Gripper said the Irish have come in to see Coleman work out.

In addition, St. Bonaventure, La Salle, St. Joe's of Philadelphia, Delaware, Temple, Siena, and Drexel.
