"I went to Junior Day at Mississippi State," said Coleman. "I got to talk to the coaches and they told me what to expect with recruiting.
"I got to talk with Coach Wilson and Coach Mullen and they both had some good things to say."
LaDarius learned that he has the Bulldogs' attention and they are interested in learning more about him.
"Coach Wilson told me that he is going to come down and see me when we start spring practice," said the talented defensive tackle. "He said he wants me to come back and go to one of their camps, so he can see me put some good work in.
"I went up there the past two years, so I kind of know what to expect. I am planning on going back this year."
After spending some time on the campus of Mississippi State the past couple of years, LaDarius has developed an affection for the program.
"I feel like it is like another home up there," said Coleman. "There are a lot of people up there that I already know. I think it could be a place I could get used to and that it would be a good place to go."
This weekend the Eagles of Southern Miss will get their turn to play host and show LaDarius what it means to wear the Black and Gold.
"I am going to Southern Miss and I think they are close to offering me," said Coleman. "They called my coach and talked with him about me, so I feel like they are real interested.
"My aunt went to school there and she was telling me that Southern Miss would be a good school to go to. She says I can play for a good football team and get a good education at USM just like I could anywhere else."
