Dajuan Coleman, The lid was on the head, a smile creased his face, people yelling in the joint.
Dajuan Coleman, looking as scholars in their glasses, buttons, shirt and suit Tuesday afternoon at Jamesville-DeWitt High School, had declared his Syracuse University college of their choice.
And so, as the program of Orange – coming off a season of 27 wins and the same rank as No. 5 preseason ranking – grew more formidable, however, had a kind of ecstasy basketball throughout Central New York .
Andy Rautins. . . Brandon Triche. . . Dajuan Coleman. The Red Rams parade, each touted more and more of which had leaked before, will continue in his path known from the eastern campus of the UB to the Carrier Dome.
And with that revelation happy, his eyes opened as wide here as the eye can.
But why not? Twentysome years after Coleman had left Syracuse, another Coleman – and a larger one, which – he promised he would stay to join a front line in the fall of 2012, which theoretically include Fab Melo, Baye Moussa Keita, Rakeem Christmas, CJ Fair, James Southerland and lord knows that anyone who still can get.
“My strengths are definitely changing portraits of people, especially when they get to the basket, or even if they come for me,” said Coleman, JD student, during a recent conversation. “And definitely, rebound on both ends of the floor. And my presence in the post is pretty good, too.”
Not found the requirements for the position of anchor basketball, these qualities make a decent starting point. Therefore, Coleman – who insists is 6-foot-10 and 285 pounds, and plans to someday have its counterpart in the NBA – is a good omen for a profound influence on the center of Syracuse during the time it mans that.
And the man who – as in, man – he probably is. Already hailed by some as the strongest player in high school in the country, Coleman, with a wingspan of 7 meters, should be even more powerful from here to your arrival at the UB.
Beyond that? Bob McKenney, JD coach, I encourage all of us to prepare to gasp.
“When Dajuan to college and started working with a trainer every day, which will reach 275 and be chased,” said McKenney. “I think the teams that have been following to see that. They see a guy going to get that sculpted body when you put the knowledge and means to do so. And then, what good is that gonna be?
“I think they’re thinking, ‘In three years, if we can make this guy, physically, where I want to be, and if it improves your game a little, it will be a monster.” I think the sky is the limit for Dajuan. ”
Now, of course. All this could be much rejoicing prematurely and that there is a danger. It was, after all, only 10 days ago that Coleman, who are not victims of the tempting whispers of John Calipari at Kentucky, served 19 years. And it’s more or less just played against adolescents overcome, some of which probably have preferred to have been elsewhere.
Therefore, in the manner of Melo, always fighting last winter, Dajuan is almost certain to find that big-time college ball is a tornado compared to the zephyr which is the world of preparation.
But then, this is the case with almost all who have made that leap of enormous proportions. The difference is that most others do more Brawn Coleman and Coleman. . . no matter the resume of the young, which has ranked somewhere between the top dozen or so seniors in high regardless of the position in all the earth.
Oh, and most others have no sense of the young (and well it is) time and circumstances, either.
“It will be an honor for me,” said Dajuan “to use basketball to go to school for free.”
His honor. . . our pleasure. Who, after all, not like a parade?
