Another blue-chip 2021 prospect has HBCUs on his radar in what has been an already productive offseason for black college football programs.
Keon Coleman, a Louisiana 4-star dual-sport athlete, is expected to announce his future college destination and he is reportedly considering three HBCU programs among a group of eight schools.
Coleman, who plays both football and basketball for Opelousas (La.) Catholic School, had initially committed to Kansas before changing his mind in October.
He’s now opened up recruitment to other suitors, including Grambling State, Florida A&M and Jackson State. Coleman also is mulling Virginia Tech, Michigan State, USC, Mississippi and Houston.
