Five-Star Point Guard Trims College Basketball Recruiting List to Two

Talented point guard prospect Matt Coleman recently announced his top-two schools to join for the 2017 college basketball season.

Five-star point guard Matt Coleman recently trimmed his recruiting list down to two, and is considering joining the Duke Men’s Basketball program in 2017. The Blue Devils have already signed three players to the 2017 recruiting class with F/C Wendell Carter, SG Gary Trent, and SG Alex O’Connell signing during the early signing period.

Matt Coleman is a talented point guard coming out of the storied Oak Hill basketball program. Coleman is a 6-1 guard who is an excellent ball-handler and willing passer. He can play as a true point guard in college basketball, which is a position that Duke has been looking to fill consistently since Tyus Jones in 2015. Oak Hill has produced several notable former Duke players, including Quinn Cook, Nolan Smith, and current top freshman Harry Giles. Coleman is considering joining Coach K at Duke and Shaka Smart at Texas after dropping Stanford from his list.

Coleman announced he could be ready to announce his college basketball decision within the next month. He is being heavily recruited by Duke assistant coach Jeff Capel, who is regarded as one of the top recruiters in the country.

Duke has also received interest from five-star 2017 point guard Trevon Duval, who recently listed the Blue Devils in his top five, and Coleman notes his decision will not be based on what Duval and Duke-target Trae Young decide.
