Former Clemson Guard transfers to Temple

Devin Coleman shown above, looks to continue his basketball journey transferring to Temple University, earlier today

Philadelphia native and former Clemson guard Devin Coleman announced earlier today, that he will transfer to Temple University. Coleman, a 6’2, 200 lb, guard from Friends Central (Pa.) previously left Clemson back in late December, after playing in only 10 games this season. He averaged 5.4 points and 1.2 rebounds so far in 2013-14. He missed last season with a torn Achilles. Hofstra, Fairfield and others were also involved with Coleman. Coleman out of Wynnewood, Pa.,  will join a pair of transfers already sitting out this season. Jaylen Bond is sitting out this season after transferring in from Texas while Jesse Morgan is rehabbing a torn ACL while trying to earn his undergraduate degree after transferring in from UMass. Coleman was the third of five players of Clemson’s head coach Brad Brownell's first true recruiting class to leave since signing before the 2011-12 season. Given his status as a mid-season transfer, Coleman will likely miss the start of next season and instead join the Owls after the fall semester. Coleman is set to become the fourth new player and third transfer added to Fran Dunphy's team next season.


Coleman is a strong wing that excels in transition. He can get to the rim at will. This lefty is an excellent athlete that can finish with excellent body control. He can spin and hang in the air on draw plenty of fouls. Temple fans should be very excited for the upcoming future for this Temple program.
