The Memphis Tigers Men’s Basketball 2021 recruiting class currently features a lone commitment from four-star Joshua Minott, a 6-foot-9 wing who also has experience with the Jamaican Junior National team. The next potential high-level recruit to join him in the 2021 class could be Dallan “Deebo” Coleman, a 6-foot-6 shooting Guard with a college-ready frame.
Deebo, a Memphis native, moved to Florida and enrolled at West Nassau High in Florida before entering his high school. He’s also very familiar with both the University of Memphis campus as well as the players and staff. These factors could make the process of him choosing a college that much easier, despite the fact high school prospects are relying on Zoom to remain connected to the recruiting process, considering they are unable to visit college campus due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Deebo’s relationship with Memphis Head Coach Penny Hardaway is also unique considering he formerly played AAU for Team Penny and his father Rand Coleman, who is currently his high school coach, also formerly coached for the Team Penny AAU program.
Deebo is a big guard with the ability to be a knockdown shooter, and he also finishes strong at the rim. His tremendous length will also allow him to guard multiple positions at the next level. Dallan is a consensus Top 50 prospect in the Class of 2021, and he’s currently rated No. 34 in the ESPN 100.
