Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- Terrell Coleman out of the state of Georgia is big and athletic small forward, who can straight dominate the game at times.
He is a dynamic and dynamite player for the Atlanta Celtics AAU squad.
He stands at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, which means he is a really big player being that he is only in the 8th grade.
Utilizing his athleticism and strength Coleman is able to easily control his competition by getting powerful rebounds, driving hard through the lane, and causing havoc on the defensive side of the ball.
“I have the self-motivation on the court that keeps from quitting on any play during the game,” Coleman told Jr. Future150.
Although he is very confident in his game, he is also quick to point out a part of his game that he strives to fix every day.
“I am good player, but I am not completely comfortable with my outside jump shot,” Coleman advised. “I am going to work hard on my consistency and mechanics of that shot.”
With his game being so different than most, he was asked who he likes to compare himself to in the NBA. He decided to provide the following, who is actually a very recent NBA Champion.
“I think my game is very comparable to Dwyane Wade,” he said. “Our games are very similar on the court.”
College is going to be something that Coleman will have to deal with in the future. He said that he would like to attend a college athletically and academically competitive.
“I think my dream school would have to be North Carolina State University,” Coleman said. “There program is an up and coming program, plus it is where my parents attended college.”
It appears that NC State is the early favorite for this young athlete and may be a hard team to beat in the long run. Making a college decision for Coleman is a long time away though.
He has the aspiration to become a big star one day and wants to work really hard to get there. To achieve the goal of stardom Coleman has a really unique way of training/studying for it.
“I get my inspiration from watching all the greats train and workout,” Coleman mentioned. “I love watching training videos of Kobe, Lebron, Magic, and Jordan; their greatness pushes me to become a better player.”
Look for Coleman to make his mark in the next Future150 national rankings update. This player has a chance to be really special.
