Iowa Football: Offer From Iowa Would Mean A Lot to In-State DB Anthony Coleman

Johnston (IA) defensive back Anthony Coleman recaps his visit to Iowa City.

The Iowa football program has already offered two in-state prospects in the 2019 cycle. 

Johnston, Iowa native, Anthony Coleman, is looking to become the third member of that group.

Coleman was in town for Iowa's junior day back on March 5th and stopped by again today to check out practice and get to know the coaches a bit more.

"I got to watch practice this morning and got to meet Kirk Ferentz," Coleman said. "I also talked with Reese Morgan and Phil Parker. After that I went and toured the campus and all the different academic buildings," he admitted. 

Coleman had nothing but great things to say about the Iowa campus and the coaching staff after his mid-week visit. 

"The program is unbelievable," he admitted. "Iowa City is an amazing place and the university is one of the best around," Coleman added. 

After enjoying his visit on the 5th, it was more of the same on Wednesday.

"I thought it was a great time," he admitted. "I enjoyed talking to the coaches and it was pretty fun getting to know the campus and academic side of the university," he said.

Coleman said that he's been building a pretty strong relationship with both Phil Parker and Reese Morgan since Iowa started recruiting him and now he's just waiting on an offer.

Growing up in Iowa, he did grow up a fan of the Iowa program and admitted that an offer would mean a lot to him. And I would venture to say one might not be too far away. 

"[Iowa} said I'm a scholarship player, but they just want to see how I grow," Coleman said. 

Even though that is an encouraging sign for him, he's still remaining patient. 

"I don't know if they [Iowa] will offer, I just want to be patient about it since I'm only a sophomore and have plenty of time," he acknowledged. 

Coleman wrapped up visiting the Michigan State Spartans on the 18th of March before heading to Iowa City 11 days later. 

As of right now, there are no offers on the table for Coleman, but like he said; he still has plenty of time.
