ZagsBlog with more on DaJuan Coleman

On Friday, DaJuan Coleman told CBSSports.com that Syracuse and Kentucky are No. 1 and No. 1A on his list. According to Adam Zagoria, AAU experts see the two schools going all out for Coleman’s services in a face-off during the summer recruiting period. Now that Syracuse and Kentucky know they’re in the lead, they’re going to push even harder for a commitment. That means following the 6-foot-8 center wherever he goes.

“I know Syracuse and Kentucky are all out,” Albany City Rocks coachJim Hart told SNY.tv Sunday by phone. “I think they sense that they have some leadership and I they’re not going to relinquish that hold.”

Expect to see Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim and his staff and Kentucky coach John Calipari and his staff trailing Coleman wherever he goes.

“It’s one of these things where people say, ‘Well, we were at every one of your games in July,’ so I can’t see Kentucky and Syracuse not having someone at every one of his games,” Hart said.

Syracuse seems like the likely destination for Coleman because it’s right down the road from his high school. Then again, Coleman has emphasized that he wants to play with a great point guard and Kentucky already has one in Ryan Harrow.

    what would be the ideal foundation to build a good college team around? a solid point g and a solid big? if so i think harrow and coleman fit that bill nicely

    Who wants to play in that boring Syracuse offense? I realize Boeheim is successful with it, but it doesn’t seem too fun for the players.

    I’ll swoop in the last :15 to get this guy. I can give him health insurance, a subscription to the Preston Knowles brush of the month club, fifeetno dollar gift cards from Porcini’s, and the new Nintendo WI Peyton Siva game. Easy.

    Hmmm… doesn’t seem as good as Daniel Orton even, but it is just one video. I’m sure Cal and Co. know better than we do. But yes that Drummond dude looks like a young Dwight Howard. Dayum
