Coleman Will Visit Norman

Sooners Illustrated caught up with Corey Coleman, four-star wide receiver and Baylor commitment for an interview earlier tonight. Coleman talked about the Sooners along with his experience this past summer at 'The Opening.'

Coleman was well known before the summer hit a few months back but by the time summer was over he was being talked about amongst the top prospects in the state of Texas as well as in the country. With impressive performances on the 7-on-7 circuit, Coleman also stood out at 'The Opening' that was held in Oregon, an event that featured some of the top prospects in the country.

Coleman not only got a chance to challenge himself against the competition but also got the chance to work with a legend of the NFL.

"When I was in Oregon for the Opening, every chance I got like I got better, route running, maturing and knowing the game. Jerry Rice, he helped me out a lot with understanding the game and stuff like that and how you get body control," Coleman said.

The 5-foot-11 and 178-pound Coleman has been committed to Baylor for quite some time but other schools are still recruiting him, including the Sooners.

"Texas and Oklahoma and all the schools that have offered me pretty much," Coleman said about who is still showing interest in him.

The Sooners were recruiting Coleman to play corner but apparently Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops would now take him on either side of the ball.

"Coach Venables, he told me that I can play either side of the ball, that's what Coach Stoops told him," Coleman stated.

Coleman talked about what he thinks about the Sooners now after hearing he could play on offense as well.

"Well you know it's just a thought like 'are you serious," Coleman said. "Some schools want you just to get you. Are they serious? Are they just saying this or are they for real?"

Later on this year the speedster says he has plans to cross the border into Oklahoma to check out Norman and the Sooners.

"Yeah I'm going to take my official visit," Coleman stated.

At this time his commitment to Baylor is firm and Coleman says if it continues the way it has been going then he will end up a Bear in college.

"I love Baylor," Coleman began. "It's a great school and great education. I love the coaches and everything like that so if everything keeps going the way it is I will definitely be signing with Baylor. That's one thing you can't take away is I'm good friends with the players and it feels like home."

The Sooners have their work cut out for them it sounds to steal Coleman away from the Bears on NSD, but it sounds like there is still a chance. Stay tuned to Sooners Illustrated as things could get interesting with Coleman moving forward.
