The 6-4, 188-pound Coleman is completing his freshman year at Lawson State Community College in Birmingham, Alabama, and will enter Cal as a sophomore with three years of remaining eligibility for the Golden Bears. He initially graduated from Butler High School in Georgia, where he finished as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,071 points.
"We’re excited to have Don join our program," Martin said. "Don is a fast and quick guard who can both distribute and score with the basketball. He is capable of making teammates around him better."

He shot 47.7 percent from the floor, 42.6 percent from 3-point range and 76.9 percent from the free throw line while also contributing 4.4 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game.
