DaJuan Coleman is a cener at Syracuse University. He was a McDonald's All-American in High School and the New York State High School Player of the Year in 2012.

Coleman would start the first twenty games of his freshman season. He struggled with the defensive schemes of Syracuse's zone and with the increased speed of the game, and like Rakeem Christmas and Fab Melo before him, was often pulled within the first five minutes of the game, and he averaged only 13 minutes a game. He did have a season high 14 points in wins over Eastern Michigan and Monmouth. Coleman would hurt his knee in the Villanova game, which would result in the need for surgery. He would miss eight games while he recovered, and when he returned he did not regain his starting position. Though healthy, he would play only four of the last twelve games of the season.

Coleman would work hard over the summer rehabilitating his knee and losing weight to become more mobile and in better playing shape. He would be the starting center, but would rotate at the center position with Christmas and Baye Moussa Keita. His scoring percentage and rebounding were both up slightly with two games with 10 rebounds, but he was playing about 13 minutes a game because of the split time. He would injure his leg in the Villanova game, with what was reported as a bruised bone. After resting a coule of games, he played a few minutes in the Virginia Tech game. However, he still was feeling pain, and on January 20th it was determined that he needed surgery, and his season was done.
