Tre Coleman, the 2020 small forward from Jeffersonville (IN) High School, spoke with D1Vision Monday about his recruitment.

Coleman, who has an offer from New Orleans, has also received interest from schools such as Xavier, Indiana, Purdue, and Dayton, with Nebraska coming in to see him practice last Friday (Dec. 1).

“The Dayton coach [Anthony Grant] is setting up a visit for me to go there, but I don’t know when,” said Coleman. “Indiana wanted me to come to a basketball game. I’m not sure yet, but I’ll probably go to the Ohio State vs. Indiana game.”

Indiana will play Ohio State at home on February 23.

Although Coleman may only be a sophomore, and coaches aren’t able to directly reach out to him yet, he has a clear idea of what he’s looking for in a school, as he said, “I’m usually just looking for what fits me best, where I can go and play right away.”

Playing at Jeffersonville, Coleman has led the Red Devils to a 2-0 record as they prepare to play a game at Seymour (IN) High School on Saturday. “As a team, we want to win a state championship, of course,” said Coleman. “But right now, I just want to get past that sectional and win regionals.”

Jeffersonville’s early success is in large part due to Coleman’s improvement over the fall and summer. “Over the fall, I improved my jump shot a lot and that showed last game,” he said. “Right now I’m just working on my ball handling. Ball handling and shooting.”

Coleman’s early success this season should lead to some more offers moving forward but there are two schools in particular that he is hoping to receive an offer from.

“I would hope to receive an offer from Duke and UCLA. It would be a lifelong accomplishment for me,” said Coleman before breaking down what he likes about each school.

UCLA: “The location and the way they play. I watch them all the time.”

Duke: “Of course Marvin Bagley III goes there and he’s obviously going to the league, so that’s a bonus. I also like how Coach [Mike Krzyzewski] sends people to the league easily.”
