Spend some time with Keith Coleman and you realize that he's one of those guys who lets his game do his talking. Based on what he showed last summer and again at last weekend's National Prep Showcase, Coleman's game does more than enough talking.
One of the most physically imposing prospects in the class of 2011, the 6-foot-8, 240-pounder from Philadelphia who is prepping at Lee (Maine) Academy looks like a grown man playing with high schoolers.
His game is fitting of a man as well. He doesn't waste any time on the perimeter and is all about trading blows and doing the dirty work near the hoop.
"Coaches like that I'm a big guy and play like one," Coleman told Rivals.com. "I get out there, bang, rebound, score if I can."
With so few capable big men left in the class of 2011, Coleman is likely to get plenty of looks this winter. So far, he says that he hasn't paid much attention to the recruiting aspect of things.
"I really haven't thought much about it," said Coleman of his recruitment. "LaSalle, Drexel, Illinois and VCU have been in touch. VCU has offered."
With most of his prep year ahead of him, Coleman says that he's first worried about getting his academics straight. After that, he'll get to work on sorting out his favorites and taking visits.
"I don't have any kind of timetable," said Coleman. "I'd like to take some visits and then sign in the late period."
