2013 Kansas lineman gaining steam

The state of Kansas boasts a number of high quality offensive line prospects in the Class of 2013, and prominent on that list is Mill Valley (KS) High tackle Coleman McCann.

Though it's early in the recruiting process for the Class of 2013, it looks as if the 6-foot-3, 275-pound Coleman McCann will have a number of options at his disposal. Last summer, he camped at Navy, where the coaching staff pulled him aside and indicated they were extremely interested - planning a visit to Mill Valley for later this spring.

A little more than two weeks ago, he visited the University of Kansas during the program's Junior Day recruiting event, during which he had the chance to speak with Jayhawks offensive line coach Tim Grunhard.

"He said he's seen my video and that I had good footwork and technique," McCann said. "And that for a guy my size, I'm pretty small, but I make up for it in my girth. Compared to some of the other kids I was an inch or two smaller - I'm 6-foot-3 and some of them are like 6-foot-5."

"He said he's going to come visit my school in mid-April," he added. "And I'm going to see him so much I'm going to get sick of him."

The weekend after his visit to Kansas, McCann visited the University of Pennsylvania, and has also received interest from Western Michigan.

A track star as well - he throws both the shot put and discus in the spring - McCann has spent the winter sport season training in the mornings before school in the weight room with the rest of the Jaguars football team.

"My focus for me is my speed and agility," he said. "For a lineman that's the most important. If you can't get off the line fast enough, you're already beat."
