Recruiting is the lifeblood of any program...

New University of Memphis Head Coach Josh Pastner got a Transfusion of Talent when Junior College Big Man Will Coleman decide to REMAIN a Tiger.

Coleman just got to Memphis Monday..

The 6'9", 250 pounder originally signed with the Tigers when John Calipari was Head Coach.

His Juco Teammate, small forward Darnell Dodson, decided to follow Coach Cal to Kentucky..

But, Coleman, who's been called a mirror image of former Tiger Joey Dorsey, except with some offense..says the Only Big Blue he's interested in, is here in the Big M.

  Coleman says: "I signed with Memphis. I'll stay with Memphis. When I sign something that is my word. And I honor my word."

  Coleman says he's met most of his new teammates and he's looking forward to playing with the Tigers this year.
