Dallas Woodrow Wilson big man Zach Coleman officially selected Missouri as his destination for the fall of 2013.

The 6-foot-8 senior said the Tigers' move to the SEC played a big role in his decision.

"I like the style of play," Coleman said via text Monday. "I have a great relationship with the staff, and they are making the move to the SEC. A player like myself would thrive in that conference."

Coleman's coach, Patrick Washington, said Missouri recruited Coleman very well, making what can be a stressful process kind of fun.

"I think he enjoyed having those guys recruit him," Washington said. "They showed him how he would fit into what they were trying to do, especially with them going into the SEC. It should be a great situation for him."

To Washington, Coleman's commitment proved the power forward's dedication to his school work even more than his success on the hardwood.

Coleman averaged 14 points and 13 rebounds during his junior season, helping the Wildcats win the 12-4A championship en route to a regional quarterfinal appearance.
