Charles Coleman, a 7-foot, 240-pound center-forward who played two seasons at East Carolina, signed a commitment letter to St. Joseph’s, Hawks coach Billy Lange announced Friday.
Coleman played in nine of the Pirates’ first 10 games last season before being sidelined for the rest of the year with an injury. He scored a total of seven points with 10 rebounds while averaging 5.5 minutes.
In his first season, he played in 30 games with 20 starts and averaged 3.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 16.1 minutes. He led East Carolina in blocked shots and was named to the AAC’s All-Academic team.
Coleman is the second big man to commit to St. Joseph’s since the end of the regular season. The Hawks also signed 6-10, 243-pound center-forward Ejike Obinna, a graduate transfer from Vanderbilt.
