Matt Coleman, a 6-foot-2 senior point guard from Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., has received scholarship offers from Kansas and Duke, he reported Saturday on Twitter.
Coleman is ranked No. 37 in the recruiting Class of 2017 by Rivals.com.
This past summer, he won a gold medal playing for Team USA at the FIBA Americas Under 18 championships in Chile. That squad was coached by Texas’ Shaka Smart.
Coleman, who is from Norfolk, Va., told Zagsblog.com he has a long list of schools that include KU, Duke, Texas, Syracuse, Xavier, Arizona, Louisville, Stanford, Washington, Georgia Tech, N.C. State, Ohio State, Providence and Seton Hall.
“Matt is the consummate pass-first point guard,” Oak Hill coach Steve Smith told ZagsBlog.com. “He’s always looking to facilitate and create for his teammates. He has great court vision.”
Brown arrives for his visit
Chaundee Brown, a 6-5 senior shooting guard from First Academy in Orlando, Fla., arrived for his official KU campus visit at 11 a.m, Saturday. Marcus Garrett, a 6-5 senior combo guard from Dallas Skyline, also is on campus this weekend for his official visit. He’s already committed to KU. Brown is ranked No. 64 in the Class of 2017 by Rivals.com. Garrett is ranked No. 44. Both players attended Saturday’s KU-Rhode Island football game with members of KU’s current basketball team.
Randolph to pare list soon
Brandon Randolph, a 6-6 senior shooting guard from Westtown School in Yonkers, N.Y., tells ZagsBlog.com he will cut his list of schools to five “within the next week.”
Randolph, who is ranked No. 54 in the Class of 2017, has a list of KU, Alabama, Arizona, Indiana, Louisville, Miami (Fla.), North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oregon, Syracuse, Wake Forest and Xavier.
“Randolph is a big two-guard who can shoot and score in bunches once he gets hot,” writes Chris Cirillo of ZagsBlog.com. He averaged 16.5 points a game for the PSA Cardinals in Nike EYBL circuit games this summer. He hit over 40 percent of his threes.
