First FSU, now UM offers Clearwater WR

Florida State was his first major offer and now Miami has added its name to the mix for one of the top slot receiver prospects in the greater Tampa area. Read on to learn about him as a prospect and to see what Miami's chances are.

Miami made an offer to C.J. Cotman this week, according to his coach, John Davis.

At 5-foot-10 and 165 pounds, Cotman is a 2017 wide receiver prospect from Clearwater Central Catholic.

Cotman is fresh off an outstanding sophomore season for a team that finished the season with an 11-2 mark. He had 766 yards rushing and 17 touchdowns. He caught 31 passes for 576 yards and five scores. He was the team's return specialist. He also starts in the secondary and finished the season with 26 tackles.

Cotman, who projects as a slot receiver at the college level, had landed earlier offers from schools like Florida State, Kentucky, and UCF so he's quickly becoming one of the top slot receiver prospects in the entire state for the 2017 class.

The Canes are expected to sign four or five receivers in their 2016 class so it's unlikely they'll need that many in 2017. However, they're going after a bunch and Cotman is just the latest offer. He's never been to Miami before and when he does this summer we'll know a lot more about how serious his interest in Miami is.
