Class of 2023 four-star prospect Isaiah Coleman tells On3 he will announce his college decision on his birthday, September 4th.

The 6-foot-5 shooting guard recently transferred from National Christian Academy (Md.) to Word of God (N.C.).

Coleman, who’s originally from Fredericksburgh, Va., is fresh off an official visit to Mississippi State. He recently picked up an offer from Auburn, to go along with scholarships from Miami, Maryland, Georgetown, Xavier, and others.

Coleman is the No. 35 overall prospect in the 2023 class, according to the On3 Consensus, the average ranking from all four major recruiting media companies. He’s also the No. 7 shooting guard.

Coleman discusses his game

In a prevous interview with On3’s Jamie Shaw, Coleman described his game and who he tries to emulate as a player.

“Don’t let me get to the basket. I am at my best when I am getting downhill. This season though, I am shooting it well. When they clog up the lane, I am making my shot.

“I watch a lot of Jayson Tatum, his swagger, and the way he scores it. Everyone knows I can score, but I am focusing on my playmaking more, facilitating and getting my teammates better.”

What’s Coleman looking for in a school?

“I am going to be looking at the style of play,” Coleman said. “If a school gets up and down and focuses on defense, getting stops, that’s it. Relationships always matter. Relationships will play a major role in my decision.”

Scouting Summary

“Isaiah Coleman has always been an aggressive and athletic wing. He gets downhill in the half-court and finishes in transition. This season Coleman has taken steps in his pace with the ball. He has developed a pull-up jumper and become a threat, with his feet set, from three-point land. Coleman is an instinctive defender, especially in the passing lanes. While he is not an alpha player, his role as a complementary guy leads to wins at the highest level. Coleman still needs to iron out the form in his jump shot, but he consistently scores it and continues adding to his game.”
