Keon Coleman Transfers to Florida State

As one of the top available players regardless of position in the college football transfer portal, Coleman attracted interest early and often following his departure from Michigan State.

Early rumors suggested interest from LSU, USC, Tennessee, and Miami. However, the 6’4″, 215-pound playmaker is taking his talents to Tallahassee, transferring to Florida State ahead of the 2023 college football season. Coleman has two years of eligibility remaining for the Seminoles.

A three-star recruit in the 2021 recruiting class, Coleman played 10 games in his first season in East Lansing. Although he only tallied seven catches for 50 yards and one touchdown, his score came in a high-profile matchup with Ohio State — a game where he tallied a then-career-high three catches for 27 yards.

That performance became more commonplace during a breakout 2022 season for the Spartans. Despite sharing targets with now-Green Bay Packers WR Jayden Reed, Coleman led the program with 58 receptions, 798 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns.

Showcasing a penchant for performing in the biggest games, he registered a career-high 155 yards against bitter rivals Michigan — the third-most yards in a single game by a Michigan State receiver against the Wolverines in program history. Coleman’s touchdown snag in that game was one of many where he showcased his exceptional timing and catch radius.

A two-sport star due to his alluring combination of size, length, and athleticism, Coleman played both football and basketball for the Spartans. While it’s unclear whether he’ll feature on the hard court for Seminoles, Coleman’s ability to become a go-to receiver for FSU quarterback Jordan Travis is obvious.
