Kansas football: Four-star recruit hints at announcement on Sunday

Kansas football has a real chance to land four-star recruit Keon Coleman, who may also end up playing basketball for Kansas basketball and Bill Self.

Both Kansas football and basketball could be in for some good news tomorrow. Four-star football prospect Keon Coleman, who also has a chance to play D-1 basketball, hinted at a possible announcement coming on Sunday, June 21.

Coleman is highly sought after for his skill on the gridiron with offers from schools like Kansas, Oklahoma, Michigan State, South Carolina, Florida State, Auburn, Georgia, and Mississippi State. He’s ranked as a top 300 prospect in the recruiting class of 2021 by 247Sports‘ Composite Rankings, which would make him the highest-rated recruit in the Jayhawks’ 2021 class should he choose Kansas.

Kansas made Coleman’s top six choices last May, and it’s looking like we could be seeing another announcement coming soon. Yesterday, Coleman sent the following tweet:

Obviously, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Coleman will be committing tomorrow, but it is something to keep an eye on. He could be cutting down his list to just a few schools, announcing a new top six, or maybe committing . Then again, maybe Coleman’s just excited for some reason totally unrelated to his recruitment.

Whatever the case, it’d be smart to follow Coleman’s recruitment assuming he doesn’t commit tomorrow. Coleman’s evaluation from 247Sports calls him a “power 5-caliber recruit who possesses a high ceiling with long-term potential to reach the NFL Draft.”

The six-foot-four wide receiver prospect from Opelousas Catholic School in Louisianna had some tremendous stats from his last football season that included over 1,100 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns.

With no Crystal Ball predictions thus far, it looks like everybody has a shot to get Coleman, and he’s keeping his decisions close to the vest. Keon Coleman would likely end up being the Jayhawks’ highest-rated recruit in their 2021 class if he chooses Kansas.

Not only that, but Coleman may also have the chance to play basketball for a blue blood program with a hall of fame coach. That’s not an opportunity that a lot of players get, so Kansas really is a unique opportunity.
