Despite the fact that a couple of players decided to transfer, the Robert Morris men’s basketball team received some good news as well.
Andy Toole added two players to his 2017 recruiting class including a talented player from New York.
Chris Coalmon is a 6-foot-6 inch forward from Brookville, New York. A college talent evaluator tells PSN that Coalmon “Is a 3/4 forward, versatile player, a tough kid, a straight line driver and can make spot up 3’s.”
“My parents and I were talking and were looking at things and I just said I think we should do this. I always knew that I was going to go there so they said you shouldn’t wait, just do it and get it over with. We did it today and they were excited ,” said Coalmon.
“Just the way the Robert Morris coaches have been talking and recruiting me and showing what I can do for them. Also, showing me what Robert Morris can do for me, I was like, this is the place for me.”
Coalmon will give Robert Morris some added size to their front court and a player with a skill set to play multiple positions.
“Coach tells me he just wants me to play basketball and to play hard. I’m capable of scoring, rebounding, passing, just play basketball pretty much.”
“I would say the strongest part of my game is shooting the ball. I’ve been a good shooter my whole life. I can shoot off the dribble, I can spot up and shoot, I can do a lot of things.”
Coalmon becomes the fourth member of the 2017 Robert Morris recruiting class, joining Charles Bain and Jonathan Williams from St. Vincent St. Mary’s in Akron and Koby Thomas from Imhotep Charter in Philadelphia who signed early with the Colonials in Novemeber.
Robert Morris has two more scholarships to use for this recruiting class.
