McDonald's All-American Game 2012: Syracuse Commit Dajuan Coleman Impresses In East Loss

Syracuse basketball commit Dajuan Coleman netted all his seven points in the first half and added 10 rebounds for the East Team which lost to the West Team 106-102 in the 2012 McDonald's All-American Game on Wednesday in Chicago, Il. Coleman (6-foot-9, 275 pounds) didn't help his team earn a victory, but did showcase a lot of impressive skill sets, including, clearing out bodies in the paint to snag a rebound.

Coleman's performance was good enough that CBSSports.com's college basketball insider, Jon Rothstein, predicts that the Jamesville-Dewitt product will be ready to help the Orange next season. Syracuse will need to replace, at least, four players due to graduation or entering the NBA Draft.

Not in last night's All-Star showcase was another Syracuse '12 recruit Jerami Grant (6-7, 200), who will play in The Jordan Brand Classic, April 14th in Charlotte, Nc. Also in that game, will be top recruit, center Nerlens Noel, who is still deciding to commit to Syracuse, Kentucky or Georgetown.
