Class of 2015 guard Jalen Coleman verbally committed to Illinois on Tuesday, according to his Twitter account.
Coleman is listed as a four-star recruit on ESPN and Rivals and a five-star recruit on 247Sports. In 247Sports' composite rankings, he is the No. 33 player in his class and the No. 7 point guard.
The guard from Indianapolis chose the Fighting Illini over offers from Indiana, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Arizona, and a host of other schools.
Coleman becomes the third commitment to coach John Groce from the class of 2015, joining four-stars D.J. Williams and Aaron Jordan. Together, they currently make up 247Sports' No. 6 team nationally and No. 2 in the Big Ten.
Excited to announce that I will be attending the Univ of Illinois. Looking forward to adding banners and accomplishing my academic goals.— Jalen Coleman (@ColemanJalen) September 23, 2014
