Coleman Still Committed, Final Word Coming

Josh Coleman reaffirmed his commitment Iowa State on Sunday, but it comes with a caveat

Four days after committing to Iowa State, defensive tackle Josh Coleman arrived home from a visit to Missouri and reaffirmed his decision. With a caveat at least.

“I’m still committed right now,” Coleman told “We’ll find out on Signing Day what my decision is.”

Coleman, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound defensive lineman from University Christian (Fla.) committed to Iowa State on Wednesday afternoon before Missouri offered later in the night. The tackle, pushed by family, made the decision to visit Missouri during the weekend to get a better feel for his recruitment.

He holds offers from Fresno State, Idaho, Tennessee State, Charleston Southern, Citadel and North Dakota along with Iowa State and Missouri. While he has reaffirmed his decision to commit to Iowa State, it apparently won’t be sealed until Signing Day arrives three days from now.

“I want to get back to my family and what they think is best,” Coleman said. “It’s just a thing of me sitting down and thinking what’s going to best for my future and what football team I’ll impact the most.”

For now, his eyes remain set on playing in Ames.

“I’ll make a decision on Signing Day,” Coleman said. “I’m still committed right now.”
