Jamesville-Dewitt’s Coleman selects Syracuse

Highly touted high school senior Dajuan Coleman selected Syracuse University today, ending months of speculation where the Jamesville-DeWitt High School center would attend college.

Coleman, a 6-foot-8 center, had narrowed his schools down to Syracuse, Ohio State and Kentucky. He was rated No. 11 and No. 14, respectively, in Scout.com and ESPNU’s 2012 class.

Coleman averaged 24.5 points and 14 rebounds in his junior year, and was part of  three New York State Class A championships at Jamesville-Dewitt.

He made an official visit to Syracuse over the past weekend, and Kentucky two weeks before that. He had scheduled a visit to Ohio State over the weekend, but canceled it, effectively eliminating the Buckeyes from contention.

Coleman joins a talented group of Syracuse big men, including McDonald’s High School All Americans Rakeem Christmas and Fab Melo. A third center on the Orange’s roster, Baye Moussa Keita, attended Oak Hill Academy.
