Justin Coleman commits to Arizona - Updated with highlights
« on: April 27, 2018, 11:39:30 AM »


Justin Coleman aka J Cole has committed to Arizona! He's going to be dishing out plenty of assists and bringing a lot of energy to Mckale. Great pickup for the CATS in a much needed position.
 
"I loved it," Coleman said, listing off Miller's entire coaching staff. "It's incredible. The team, those guys are hungry. We have a good group of guys coming back and a good group of guys coming in, and I feel like I can play a major role in leading these guys back into the NCAA Tournament and winning the Pac-12." per azcentral.com

The 5-foot-10 Coleman last season averaged 13.5 points and 6.6 assists, earning second-team All-Southern Conference honors. He shot 43.6 percent from the field, 37.3 percent from 3-point range and 80.6 from the foul line.

"I'm known for my facilitating," Coleman said from the Tucson airport, not long after finishing his visit. "I can score when I need to score, but I'm very good at running my team and getting guys shots."

I know the moderators of this site have told us that Coleman’s commitment would not affect Brandon Williams decision but my question is, will this commitment cause Alex Barcello to transfer if BW commits.  I can see him being willing to back up one new point guard but two?

We have seen enough players with itchy feet to wonder but one would hope Barcello has more drive and skill than to be deterred by the continual recruiting process. The 5yr TJM path isn’t so bad. So even if Barcello needed one more year to truly develop, it would be tough to pull a future PG that could displace him.

found this
Head Coach Scott Padgett on Coleman
 
ON THE RECRUITING TRAIL
“Even going back to his time in high school, you could definitely see that he’s an explosive playmaker and that he can get downhill, get in the paint and either create for himself, or set up an easy basket for others. He has a great work-ethic and love for the game. He also competes on every play and wants to win. Those are the things that definitely draw your attention as a coach.”
 
DURING HIS TIME AT SAMFORD
“Since he’s been on campus, I think he’s kind of validated the direction that we were heading. Last year, we had a group of four or five guys that would get in the gym and do a little bit extra, but Justin, the first day he could be on campus, we had workouts in the afternoon at 2 p.m., and he was in the gym at 6 a.m., getting extra shots up. Then, the second day he was on campus, he was in the gym at 6 a.m., getting shots up. So, before you know it, other guys are getting up early and shooting in the gym, and I think that’s just part of the way that he’s already helping to make our team better.”

i think coleman is the exact type of player we have been sorely missing, and quite possible the reason for our late season failures. we continually recruited kids focused on getting noticed by scouts and when we actually needed kids focused on proving themselves and leading by example ie coleman.

Coleman looks like the real deal. He's a better pickup than Akinjo would've been for this year's team

Kid looks like a more confident version of PJC.  Not afraid to take it to the basket.  Should be a great addition.  Although, he is just a one year player, so we shouldn't rule out another PG.
