Isiah Thomas has made waves down at Florida International with his successful recruiting, but this week Thomas lost a recruit when 2011 three-star post player Chris Coleman decommitted.
Coleman, 6-foot-9, 260-pounds and likely to attend Brandenton (Fla.) IMG Academy, has opened up his recruitment according to his travel team coach Don Marsh of NEBC.
"Chris rushed it and doesn't know if it is a good fit," said Marsh. "He thinks he has a better opportunity to excel in a more powerful conference."
Two schools have already begun to pursue Coleman, and Marsh expects much more to join the pursuit.
"UConn was on him hard before and has been in since he opened up," he said. "Virginia has also been in touch. I expect the flood gates to open next week."
Coleman is the No. 145 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
