For the second consecutive year, Richmond (VA) native Henry Coleman III finds himself in Charlottesville for the NBPA Top 100 Camp. While his trademark high motor is once again on display, the consensus 4-star forward has impressed in other areas as well this week.

Coleman III, who measures in at 6’7”, 238 pounds, enjoyed an outstanding junior season at Trinity Episcopal. He averaged 26.2 points and 12.6 rebounds per game in 2018-19, earning Richmond Times-Dispatch All-Metro Player of the Year honors as well as USA Today All-Virginia.

In an 18-point, 9-rebound performance in the final round of games at the Top 100 Camp Thursday evening, Coleman III flashed his rebounding prowess with an impressive offensive board, which he promptly put in the basket for two points. He also flashed an ability to bring the ball up the court, pushing the ball on a few occasions, including once where he passed up to a teammate for an easy score.

Ballhandling, shooting, and playing with confidence coming off screens are things Coleman III said he is working to improve this offseason with former VMI star Matt Murrer. He’s also working on his mobility to help him with his versatility on the defensive end. His goal? To be able to guard any position on the floor.

Virginia head coach Tony Bennett extended a scholarship offer to the in-state standout last summer. The Cavalier coach likes what Coleman III can become on the court on the next level, but he also likes the intangibles.

“[Bennett] said that he knows I can play basketball,” Coleman III said in an interview with reporters
