COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M men’s basketball added talented second-year player Henry Coleman III, a former Duke Blue Devil and four-star recruit by ESPN, head coach Buzz Williams announced.
“We are extremely excited to have Henry join our family,” Williams said. “I’ve known Henry and his parents for many years now. I’ve admired their family from a far, and we are fortunate to have Henry apart of the program. He is not only a gifted player, but an outstanding student as well. From day one, his presence will impact the trajectory of our program, and his leadership will be felt across Bryan-College Station.”
Coleman III appeared in 19 games last season, including Duke’s last 11 games. The Richmond, Virginia, native hauled in 26 rebounds and scored 21 points while shooting 50 percent (10-of-20) from the floor.

He provided a spark off the bench against North Carolina on Feb. 6, scoring four points, dishing out two assists, grabbing two boards and blocking a shot in 13 minutes.
