Former Thibodaux star is still considering transfer to LSU.

One of LSU’s primary recruiting targets said the Tigers are still in the mix with him despite the unfolding situation this weekend.

Shavon Coleman: 6-foot-6 swingman visited LSU officially in mid-March

Howard (Texas) College sophomore Shavon Coleman said Sunday that LSU is still one of the schools he is considering for the final two years of his college career, regardless of Trent Johnson’s resignation.

“Coach Johnson leaving doesn’t eliminate them at all,” said Coleman, a Thibodaux native. “I want to see who comes in and takes the job and see if they still want to recruit m. I’m fine with whatever the new coach wants to do, but I’m still interested in LSU.”

Coleman was in Baton Rouge for an official visit in mid-March and just completed his third official trip, this one to Texas Tech. He went to Oklahoma last weekend. Before he visited LSU, Coleman said those three schools were his three finalists.

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound swingman said he does not plan to sign a national letter of intent Wednesday when the spring signing period begins.

In fact, he said he’s in no hurry for a decision and may take his final two visits.

“I don’t want to rush this, especially now with what’s going on at LSU,” Coleman said. “I need to take my time and make sure I make the best choice for me.”

In his final season at Howard College, Coleman averaged 14.7 points and 6.6 rebounds and added 56 assists and 45 steals.
