Coffman Still Looking at Clemson?

Josh Coffman is one of the most athletic big men in the state of Florida this year. At the Nike Camp in Miami, he measured in at 6-5.5 and 212 pounds and turned in outstanding times of 4.75 in the forty and most impressively a 4.32 shuttle time.

His shuttle time was better than most of the smaller skill position players at the camp. He had an early offer from Clemson, and the Tigers were considered his early leader, but as the recruiting process wears on, Coffman is looking more in state.

"I've gone to several games already this year. I went to the Miami/Florida game, the FSU/Miami game, and the Florida/Kentucky game," said Coffman.

"I'm going to the Florida/South Carolina game next weekend. I've gotten some new offers. Duke has offered me. Florida International, who is moving up to Division 1 next year has offered me, and Army has given me an offer also. I'd really like to stay in state and go to Florida or Miami, but if they don't offer, I'll take a hard look at Florida International since they have offered."

Coffman's Palmetto team meets Sarasota High School this weekend in what is in essence a playoff game. "We're 5-4 on the season. We're 4-0 with our quarterback in the game, and he's healthy again. If we win this game we're in the playoffs."

Coffman has been told that he may grow into an offensive tackle on the next level, but he would need about 80 pounds before he would be ready. With his size and quickness, he can be a quick contributor on the field at tight end.
