    Joe Coleman (espn #80 overall, rivals #34 SG) verballed to MN over the weekend. Here's an article from GopherHole.com from Chris Monter talking with Coleman's HS coach Ken Novak.

    Coleman to MN

    Another article from the Star Tribune:

    FarmerClone from his blog speculates that our acquisition of Chris Allen probably ended our chances with Coleman.

    Yes and no. I think Chris Allen is a very good player and very good athlete... plus Coleman was going to be a very hard get out of MN since his older brother was a Gopher.

    I would have loved to land Coleman, but I'm very happy with our team right now for next year. A lot of potential even with the risks.

    His brother transfered out and wanted him to go elsewhere.
    I've posted it before, I think this is going to be the one that got away.

    From what others have said on the message boards, his brother is not the biggest fan of the Minnesota program. It sounds like it may have been his only high major option, though. Hoiberg was focusing on getting 1s after the commitment of Allen, so it seems likely that the program as a whole cooled on Coleman. Not to say we would not have tried to make room if he really wanted to be here.

    Coleman would have been nice AFTER next year, only because Allen gets 1 year. I have a feeling however FH will land a damn good shooting guard to replace Allen, he hasnt dissapointed yet.

    Doesn't that make this so much more fun? OK, we didn't land the one guy, but the odds are really good that Fred lands somebody very good.
