Keon Coleman Sends a Heartfelt Message To Florida State Community as he heads to the NFL.
Coleman reflected on his time in Tallahassee when he announced his intention to declare for the 2024 NFL Draft. Florida State Seminoles Florida State has only produced one No. 1 pick (Jermaine Johnson) since coach Mike Norvell arrived in Tallahassee, but that year will be a step up this year.
The Seminoles are loaded with star talent in 2023, with names like tight end Jared Verse and wide receiver Keon Coleman making headlines. On Wednesday afternoon, Coleman announced his entry into the 2024 NFL Draft. The move was confirmed by the media last week, but it is now official that it will be at the professional level.
Coleman sent an emotional message to FSU fans on social media after a lone season in blue and gold. Dear Nole Family: First of all, I thank God for his countless blessings in my life. When I decided to come to Tallahassee, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. You exceeded all my expectations and welcomed me with open arms.
They also changed Leon County to Keon County. We all share a purpose. You wanted to win. I came here to win. We gave it everything we had, but we didn’t get a chance to prove that we are the best team in college football this year. I am eternally grateful to my fans, coaches and teammates who have become my brothers for life. And Michigan State family, my heart goes out to you for helping me build the foundation I have now in my college career. When my Seminole is over, I’m a Spatandawg forever.
A family forever!!!e quot; “Lastly and most importantly, I would like to thank my family. Much of the love people show you is determined by your performance on the field. I cannot thank you enough for the endless love and support you have shown me.
A home to raise me in.” ; I read my favorite Bible verse, Habakkuk 2:2, and the Lord answered me and said, “Write the vision, explain it clearly on the tablet, they read it.” After praying and seeking God’s guidance, I finally read. I decided what the next chapter of my life would be.
I am officially declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft. Playing in the NFL has been a lifelong dream of mine, and I look forward to the opportunity to make a positive impact on and off the field.
Coleman returned 25 punts for 300 yards at Florida State while catching 50 passes for 658 yards and 11 touchdowns through the air. He was the first Seminole to be named First-Team All-ACC at three different positions (wide receiver, fullback and specialist). Before his time in Tallahassee, Coleman spent two seasons at Michigan State, catching 65 passes for 848 yards and eight touchdowns.
He signed with the Spartans as a three-star prospect in the 2021 class. It will be interesting to see if Coleman decides to compete with the other wide receivers in the combine. The NFL Draft is scheduled for Thursday, April 25, 2024.
