Therran Coleman became the third member of the Pitt football recruiting class to commit on live local TV. Like Bricen Garner and Rashad Wheeler, Therran Coleman used KDKA as his platform to announce his college decision to play for Pat Narduzzi and the Pitt Panthers. Coleman is the top rated player from the Pittsburgh City League as a star for Brashear High School.
Coleman had a slew of offers and picked Pitt over a final grouping of Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, Arizona State, and West Virginia. He is listed as a 6'1" 180 pounds. He is a three-star prospect across the board. Coleman is rated as a top 15 Pennsylvania prospect by ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. Coleman figures to be a corner for Pitt, but displays great versatility at the high school level for Brashear.
Coleman becomes the tenth prospect for the class of 2016. He is the third defensive back joining Maurice Ffrench and Bricen Garner. The Pittsburgh native becomes the fourth local prospect to commit along with Garner, Brandon Ford and Rashad Wheeler. The 2016 WPIAL class features a number of high priority players for Pat Narduzzi and his staff to try to reel into the program. Among the top names remaining include Damar Hamlin, Khaleke Hudson, Kaezon Pugh, and Aaron Matthews. Pitt stands in solid shape with all of those players by most accounts, and perhaps with Coleman in the fold, their chances may have improved with all of those prospects this evening.
