No. 4- Gerard Coleman (Gonzaga)
Another Gonzaga Bulldog transfer makes this top 5 list, and that is former Providence Friar Gerard Coleman. Unlike Angel Nunez, the Gonzaga faithful is enamored with his past production, opposed to just his potential. The former Friar averaged 13.2 points and 5.0 rebounds in the2011-season. That is an extremely productive stat-line, especially for playing in such a prestigious conference like the Big East. After sitting out last season to satisfy the NCAA transfer rules, he will sport the Gonzaga uniform this upcoming season. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
Coleman is expected to be a starter, and a big contributor for the Zags this season. His ability to score from the wing, as well as rebound would make him the perfect small forward for the Gonzaga lineup. His slasher mentality from the outside will be beneficial for the Bulldogs, and will provide a new wrinkle to their offense; there is no one on the Gonzaga roster that can drive to basket the way Coleman can. If Coleman meshes with the returning Gonzaga starters, particularly Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell Jr., the WCC should be petrified, because that has the chance to be truly terrifying.
