Matt Coleman, the 6-foot-1, 174-pound point guard from Oak Hill (VA) Academy, visited Texas on an official this past weekend and is focusing on three schools.
“Right now I’m completely open between Stanford, Texas and Duke,” Coleman told Brett Regan of FloHoops.com prior to the Texas visit where he was accompanied by 7-footer Mohamed Bamba,who plans to sign late.
“They all have something different to offer so there’s a piece of me that wants to go to each place, but right now I really can’t tell you where. I’m looking for having that relationship with the coach, where he trusts me and I trust him, that he’s going to help better me to get where I want to go and he trusts that if things are not going right I’ll still be able to get the job done for him,” Coleman added.
Coleman has taken officials to Duke (Sept. 16), Stanford (Sept. 30) and Texas (Oct. 28), but remains undecided on his timetable.
“Some days I want to sign early, some days I want to sign late,” he said. “But after I take this Texas visit I should have an idea where I really want to go.”
