Georgia Tech basketball is on the board with a major addition to its 2021 recruiting class: 4-star shooting guard Dallan Coleman. A big 6-foot-6, 210-pound guard from Florida, Coleman checks in as a top-50 prospect, per 247 Sports.
Coleman has a good frame and plenty of scoring craft; he’s an excellent shooter, which bodes well for a program that’s struggled with perimeter shooting under Josh Pastner.
Florida State, Florida, Ohio State, Texas Tech, Georgetown and Clemson — among others — all offered scholarships for Coleman, too. Texas Tech and Ole Miss were the other finalists for Coleman.
In the end, though, Georgia Tech pulled it out. Assistant coach Julian Swartz was pivotal; he led Georgia Tech’s recruitment of Coleman.
Top-35 senior Dallan “Deebo” Coleman just announced his commitment to Georgia Tech. Highest-ranked recruit of the Josh Pastner era.

Coleman joins Miles Kelly, a 4-star combo guard from Hargrave Military Academy, in Georgia Tech’s 2021 class. During his junior season at West Nassau (Callahan, Fla.) High, Coleman averaged 25.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.9 steals and 3.5 assists per game.
If junior guard Michael Devoe returns for his senior season in 2021-22, Georgia Tech will have a strong backcourt with Coleman, Kelly and Devoe.
