2. Keon Coleman, WR, Opelousas Catholic (La.)

Another prospect to be on the lookout for is four-star wideout, Keon Coleman. Standing tall at 6-foot-4, Coleman plans two be a dual-sport athlete in college and play hoops along with football.  Sunday night Coleman dropped his top eight schools which included Michigan State, USC, Texas, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Jackson State, Grambling State and Florida A&M.

Along with those eight schools, Coleman had over forty offers from schools like Oklahoma, Auburn, Georgia, Texas A&M, Florida State and more.

Michigan State didn’t sign a receiver in the early period, and they really did not make a push for anyone besides Coleman and Michigan signee Andrel Anthony. It’s clear the Michigan State staff really is not worried about their wide receiver room. but they still don’t wanna miss on a guy like Coleman.

Mel Tucker and Tom Izzo are both in pursuit of Coleman and the former has been liking a ton of Coleman’s tweets.

The pursuit of Coleman with Izzo and Tucker is one of the most elite things I’ve ever seen on the recruiting trail. Coleman has been seen wearing Michigan State gear at local high school games and definitely has a serious interest in the Spartans.

Coleman is an elite playmaker with his size and leaping ability. He is still a bit raw and needs to work on some things, but his athleticism is second to none. Adding Coleman as the lone receiver to this class would be a great way to round out Tucker’s first year in East Lansing.
