DL Prospect Discusses His Senior Season

A football recruiting report is featured on one of the state of Alabama's top prospects for the 2009 signee class.

Mobile, Ala.--Auburn's first commitment for the 2009 football signee class says that he still feels good about his decision as his team approaches the halfway point of the regular season.

Terrence Coleman from Williamson High School says that his team is playing solid football with a 3-1 record going into a game this week vs. Baker High.

"We are playing pretty good and I think our offense is going to take off when we get LaVoyd back in the lineup in about three weeks," he says. "He hurt his leg and is still in a boot, but he makes a big difference for us--about 14 points per game."

LaVoyd James, a 5-10, 180 receiver with 4.45 speed, put up big numbers as a junior last fall and committed to Coach Tommy Tuberville's Auburn team this past summer.

Coleman says he feels like he is having a good senior season. "I don't know what my stats are, but I know I have four sacks," he says.

Already a quick player as a junior, he says he feels like he has gotten quicker on his "takeoff" when the ball is snapped. The Williamson standout says he has added some height this summer and fall. "I am up to 6-1 1/2," he says. "I weigh 245 right now."

The nephew of current Auburn star defensive end Antonio Coleman, who is the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week, Terrence notes he is going to try to make the drive to Nashville on Saturday to watch Antonio and Tigers play vs. Vanderbilt.

Scheduled to sign with Auburn in February, he adds that his commitment to the Tigers is still strong.
