Coleman heading to Orlando, no decision imminent
Bishop McNamara center Brandon Coleman will play Monday night against Don Bosco Cristo Rey but will miss Saturday's game against Paul VI Catholic as the All-Met defensive back and wide receiver heads to Orlando for the UnderArmour All-American Game.
Coleman departs Tuesday morning, Mustangs Coach Marty Keithline said, then returns after the game on Jan. 4. (By the way, what marketing genius thought it was a good idea to have a national-style all-star game on the first school night when classes resume after winter break?)
Keithline said that it was just plain good timing that the Mustangs played in their two allotted tournaments before Christmas so that they wouldn't be playing without Coleman this week. McNamara played in the Gonzaga D.C. Classic from Dec. 10-12, then went to Las Vegas and finished second in the Bishop Gorman Holiday Tournament that concluded Dec. 19.
In the 61-54 loss to Bishop Gorman, Coleman was matched up with Xavier Grimble, a 6-foot-6, 240-pound tight end heading to Southern Cal. Coleman scored five points to Grimble's three. This week, they will be teammates for the all-star game.
"They shoved each other around the whole game," Keithline said. "He's a wide load. And he can move pretty good for how big he is."
Coleman has yet to make his college choice, but it is believed that Maryland and Rutgers are the two schools he is strongly considering. Keithline said he does not expect Coleman to announce his choice before the National Letter-of-Intent signing period begins on Feb. 3.
