Summer is slowly winding down, which for wide receiver Brandon Coleman means two-a-days are in the near future. The 6-foot-6 three-star player from Bishop McNamara high school has been working hard recently on speed and strength conditioning in preparation for the practices.
"I run every day doing sprinting and jogging," Coleman said. "I also lift four times a week, work out with a personal trainer three times a week, and mentally have been going over my playbook a lot."
The last time Scout.com caught up with Coleman he stated that Maryland was the early favorite and that remains the case today.
"I feel comfortable with the staff and it's close to home," he said about the reasons Maryland is the favorite.
While he states that he has a close relationship with almost all of the coaches recruiting him, he certainly has a soft spot for Maryland coaches Lee Hull and James Franklin.
"(Coach) Hull is very cool—laid back and has a personality like me," he said. (Coach) Franklin is always up beat and always has a lot of energy."
Coleman maintains that the biggest factor for him is the people involved with the school. One of the most important parts of that is the head coach and he has very specific things that he's looking for in a coach.
"(He needs to) know what he's doing, (have a) good background and have a clear goal," he said. "Also (he) needs to not be too hard where he is just yelling but isn't teaching. I want someone who really wants to win."
Although he didn't really know much about it, Coleman "had heard" he was named to the Maryland Crab Bowl Super Sixty. Despite the fact he didn't attend the combine this past Saturday, he still hopes to play in the game in December.
"It's quite an honor and I'm definitely humbled," he said. "I definitely hope to play in the game."
Last season he had 35 catches for 555 yards and 8 touchdowns. Additionally he reports a 3.3 GPA and an 880 on SATs.
