Keon Coleman Transfer Portal: What Are His 3 Best Landing Spots?

Former Michigan State wide receiver Keon Coleman is in the transfer portal. Coleman was electric for the Spartans throughout the 2022 campaign. He appeared in 12 contests as a junior and recorded 58 receptions for 798 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

Coleman was immediately met with widespread interest upon his entrance into the portal. Coleman has already been contacted by approximately 59 programs, according to On3Sports’ Hayes Fawcett. Coleman has already begun taking official visits to potential suitors. We’ve identified three landing spots for Keon Coleman via the portal.


Coleman completed his first visit since entering the portal with Florida State. Coleman posted news of his official visit to Tallahassee via his official Twitter page. It indicates the Seminoles are an early front-runner.

Coleman was welcomed on-site by Seminoles running backs coach David Johnson. Johnson possesses several ties to Coleman’s hometown of Opelousas, Louisiana. Johnson was notably photographed alongside Coleman in Tallahassee.

Coleman could help complete an ascending receiver room at Florida State. Last year’s receiving leader Johnny Wilson returns, and Kentron Poitier is expected to take a step forward. The ever-electric Winston Wright Jr. is also slated to return from injury. Mycah Pittman and Ontaria Wilson, who combined for 62 receptions and 825 receiving yards, are no longer with the program. Coleman would be joining an exciting new-look bunch.


The presence of Lane Kiffin immediately catapulted Ole Miss onto Coleman’s radar. Coleman will officially visit Ole Miss on Tuesday. Coleman announced the visit via official social media pages.

Kiffin possesses one of college football’s elite offensive minds. Kiffin’s employs a receiver-friendly scheme that allows wideouts to produce in bunches. Kiffin’s offense routinely generates explosive plays at an alarming rate. Most recently, Kiffin’s Rebels averaged an astounding 33.5 points per contest in 2022.

There is room for production at Ole Miss. The Rebels lost Jonathan Mingo and Malik Heath to the NFL draft. Mingo produced 51 receptions for 861 yards and five touchdowns last season en route to being a second-round selection of the Carolina Panthers. Heath was actually Ole Miss’ leading receiver (60-971-5). Heath signed with the Green Bay Packers in undrafted free agency.

Ole Miss was expected to welcome fellow receiver Chris Marshall in as a transfer from Texas A&M. Marshall was recently dismissed from the program for an alleged violation of team rules. Marshall’s unexpected absence should lead Ole Miss to aggressively pursue Coleman’s services.


Auburn is another program that has shown interest in Coleman. The Tigers make sense because they recently landed the services of Coleman’s former quarterback Payton Thorne via the portal. Throne, who threw for 19 touchdowns in 2022, showcased good chemistry with Coleman last season.

The Tigers have a new offensive-minded head coach in Hugh Freeze. Freeze is looking to completely revamp Auburn’s offense after the program averaged a disappointing 24.8 points per contest en route to a 5-7 record. The presences of Freeze and Thorne make Auburn an intriguing fit for Coleman.
