Coleman Has Clear Favorite

2010 prospect Brandon Coleman talks to TSR about recruiting and declares a favorite

With the football season well underway and the recruiting process heating up, scouts are highly anticipating a decision from Brandon Coleman. The speedy 6'6 wide receiver out of Bishop McNamara High School in Forestville, Maryland is waiting until the season is over to decide where he wants to play college football.

Although Coleman admits that Rutgers is his favorite as this point, he is still showing interest in four other schools: Maryland, Virginia Tech, Virginia, and Syracuse.

“I have been [to Rutgers] a lot of times. They have a friendly environment. I like the people, the coaches they have, and they have good academics. That's my number one school,” Coleman said.

The 4-star recruit went on to say that he feels almost the same way about the schools and that each has great academics.

With schools such as Maryland and Virginia off to shaky starts for the season, some people worry it will scare away recruits. That's not the case for Brandon Coleman.

“The only thing that would change my mind is if coaches get switched around or something really drastic. But, their winning and losing record isn't going to have a negative affect on my decision,” Coleman said of Maryland and Virginia's poor performances so far.

Maryland will face off against Coleman's number one choice this upcoming weekend, when Rutgers comes to College Park. Although the game involves two of Coleman's top schools, he made it very clear that the outcome of this game will have no affect on his college decision.

Coleman will not be able to attend due to the fact that he has a game every Saturday, making it extremely difficult to officially visit during the season. Coleman will be able to line up official visits after his season is over, following those he will commit to his school of choice.
