Will USC land WR transfer Keon Coleman ?

In his last two seasons at Michigan State, 6-foot-4, 215-pound Keon Coleman caught 65 passes for 848 yards and scored eight touchdowns. He has built a reputation as a deep-threat receiver with the ability to get behind defenses and bring in long catches.

Coleman, who played high school ball at Opelousas Catholic in Louisiana, was Michigan State’s leading receiver in 2022.  He hauled in 58 receptions for 798 yards and seven touchdowns.  In 2021, he caught seven passes for 50 yards and one score.

Coleman was rated as a four-star prospect in Michigan State’s 2021 recruiting class. He chose Michigan State originally while holding offers from over 40 programs which included Georgia, Florida State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, Southern Cal, and several others.

Could USC land another WR in an already crowded wide receiver room? It is certainly an intriguing question, and it’s something USC might find easier to pursue given the defensive enhancements it has made in the transfer portal, particularly with Georgia’s Bear Alexander coming to Heritage Hall in the spring portal window.
