Coleman to Visit Ohio State

DaJuan Coleman has tentatively set his official visit to Ohio State for the weekend of Sept. 23 and will likely take all three officials before making a decision.

“OSU is penciled in for the fourth weekend of September right now,” Jim Hart, Coleman’s AAU coach, said by text. The Buckeyes host Colorado in football Sept 24.

The 6-foot-9 Coleman out of Jamesville DeWitt is also considering hometown favorite Syracuse and Kentucky, but no Syracuse visit has been set.

He will trip to Kentucky the weekend of Oct. 15 for Big Blue Madness.

“He wants to take all the visits,” Hart said. “He wants to give everybody a shot.”

Sullinger took an unofficial to Ohio State the last weekend in August. The school has been working hard on Coleman, using Jared Sullinger to help recruit the big man.

“I think Sullinger is basically [saying] his school is just pushing me harder,” Coleman told last month. “That’s what I want. I like competition and stuff. They push me harder, give me the ball, put me in the right spot. You know, make me better as a player.”

He added:  ”Ohio State, I like how they use their big man and develop big men so that’s one thing about them.”
