West Virginia was the first Power 5 school to offer Coleman and he picked the Mountaineers over Western Kentucky and others.
The Mountaineers have lost a few members of the secondary to the transfer portal this offseason, most notably star cornerback Tykee Smith, and this helps add some depth. After the NCAA made the 2020-21 season a “free” year of eligibility due to COVID-19, Coleman will have five years to play four and will be arriving to WVU this summer.
The Mountaineers are entering Year 3 under Neal Brown, which is a pivotal one for any coach, and open the season on September 4th on the road against Maryland.
