Big Tight End Likes Clemson

One of the more talented yet unknown players in Florida has to be Palmetto High's 6-foot-6, 230 pound Josh Coffman. A standout at both tight end and defensive end, the Sunshine State prospect has three offers heading into his senior season, but is in no hurry to make his college decision.

Coffman is being recruited by colleges mostly as a tight end, despite the fact that he only caught 10 passes as a junior in a run-oriented offense at Palmetto.

"Right now I have offers from Clemson, Army and Florida International," Coffman told Student Sports. "I'm also hearing a lot from Michigan State, UCF, Memphis, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Tennessee, South Florida and Illinois."

Coffman said that if he had to name five favorites right now, they'd be Clemson, Florida, Miami, South Florida and Michigan State.

While Coffman only caught 10 passes last fall as a tight end, he stood out on the defensive side of the ball, collecting 105 tackles and 10 sacks.

He displayed very impressive athleticism for a player his height at the Nike Camp in Alabama, clocking a 4.75 in the 40 and a 4.32 in the shuttle while displaying soft hands in passing drills.

Coffman visited Florida, South Florida, Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee over the summer and is a superior student/athlete, carrying a 3.6 GPA and already having scored an 1130 on the SAT and a 24 on the ACT.

The Tigers were actually the first school to move in with an official offer, so Clemson may have the inside track on his services. Coffman is currently listed as a three-star prospect by TheInisders, and he is the #55 prospect overall in the country at tight end.
