Keon Coleman showcased the true value of talent from the transfer portal in a stunning performance on Sunday night. Since joining the Florida State Seminoles after his time at Michigan State, Coleman has already proven himself to be a game-changer.
Before Coleman's arrival, the Seminoles were already considered contenders for a spot in the College Football Playoff. However, his first game with the team demonstrated exactly why his addition could be the key to their success this year. With nine catches for 122 yards and three touchdowns, Coleman played a crucial role in the Seminoles' dominant 45-24 victory over LSU in a top-10 matchup.
Not only has Coleman made a significant impact on the field, but he is also capitalizing on his newfound fame off the field. Over the weekend, he gained approximately 13,000 social media followers and took the opportunity to release his own apparel line teaming up with Athlete Studio.
Embracing the location of his new team, Coleman's apparel collection features T-shirts and long-sleeve shirts adorned with the phrase "Keon County" in the iconic garnet and gold colors of Florida State. The designs also include an outline of the state of Florida and the "Established in 2023" moniker, symbolizing his arrival at the university.
Prices for the merchandise range from $35 to $50, and thanks to the recent changes in NIL regulations, Coleman is now able to profit from his own merchandise sales.
In addition to his on-field success, Coleman has also built a substantial following on social media. With over 81,000 followers, including 29,000 on TikTok and 50,000 on Instagram, his large social media presence opens up even more opportunities for NIL endorsements.
Keon Coleman's arrival at Florida State has undoubtedly made a significant impact both on and off the field. With his exceptional performance, growing social media presence, and lucrative NIL opportunities, Coleman is set to achieve great success throughout his college football career.
