Dajuan Coleman of Jamesville-Dewitt High School, just outside of Syracuse, NY, is the #2 overall recruit in the class of 2012. The 6'8" 270 lbs center got the chance to go head to head with Will Regan of the Nichols School (Buffalo, New York), who is the #16 overall center in the 2010 recruiting class. Regan is committed to play for Tony Bennett at the University of Virginia, and Coleman got the chance to showcase his skills and did just that. He was a force on the interior and finished with 17 points and 9 rebounds in his teams 71-66 victory. Coleman's Jamesville-Dewitt team is the #1 ranked class "A" team in New York state.

Basketball is not what I do, it is who I am. When I was a senior in high school I made the decision to forego college so that I could commit every waking moment to my passion. I've tried to give my job a label, but there really is no one title that describes it. My old site focused on covering high school basketball in Illinois and reporting recruiting news, and DP B-ball was created to enable my staff and I to do much much more. This blog is a transition site until the real DPBball.com gets released, and my staff and I will be updating daily with tons of fun and exciting content about everything high school hoops. With highlight videos, interviews on camera and off, recruiting news from around the globe, compelling feature articles, and much more, DP B-ball is the place to be for anybody who shares my passion. It's YOU, the people of the basketball community, that make it possible for me to do what I love every day, and for that I am forever grateful and willing to do whatever I can to help you all just like you do for me. So email me anytime, and if you love hoops like I do, consider me your friend. Thanks, and enjoy!
