After seeming to re-affirm his commitment to Jackson State, Jackson State wide receiver Kevin Coleman has announced he is entering the transfer portal.
Following Jackson State’s 41-34 loss to North Carolina Central on Saturday, Coleman shared his original commitment post to his Instagram story saying “Love ya Jackson 4L” as well as “Gotta finish what we started…”
When Deion Sanders first announced he would be moving on to Colorado, Coleman was one of many players people expected to enter the transfer portal potentially following him to Boulder.
In his initial press conference when he committed to Jackson State, he credited Sanders as the inspiration for his decision saying, “Primetime why not play for the best?”
Coleman had his best performance of the season in the Celebration Bowl recording seven receptions for 137 yards (both season-highs) including an 85-yard touchdown catch. He also had a major impact on special teams returning six kickoffs for 125 yards.
This is nothing new for the Tigers’ freshman who has been a major threat for Jackson State on offense and special teams all season.
He finished the year with 32 receptions for 475 yards and three touchdowns. He also returned 16 kickoffs for 373 yards and six punts for 52 yards.
Coleman joins a cavalcade of Jackson State players that have entered the transfer portal in the aftermath of the team’s Celebration Bowl loss.
These include Travis Hunter, Shedeur Sanders, Shilo Sanders, Herman Smith, John Huggins, and Tyler Brown among others.
