Justin Coleman to wear Crimson

Justin Coleman has committed to Alabama.  He is a 5'10 155 lb PG from Wenonah High School here in Birmingham, and is a top 100 rated player nationally.  He is a good kid from a good family, I know his grandmother fairly well, but most importantly a very good point guard.  He is quick, makes good decisions, and can handle the rock.

This is a great pick up, Congratulations to Coach Anthony Grant and the staff.  This is a good year for in-state talent (something we haven't been able to say around here in a while) and it is rumored that Coleman, Riley Norris, and William Lee would all like to play together.  Maybe this is a good sign that more positive news is to come?

Really excited about this news. I've been a big fan of Coleman for a while now. As you say, he's very quick, handles the ball well and makes great decisions. He also wowed people who saw him play this summer with his shooting. At 155 lbs he may need a year or two to get stronger, but this is a big time commit for the program and fills a real need.

Does anyone know if he will sign in November?
