At 6-foot-5 and 295 pounds, Dallas (Texas) Skyline standout defensive tackle Steven Coleman has watched his team struggle to an 0-3 start this season. However, Coleman has played very well. He's played all over the trenches so far - tight end, left defensive end, right defensive tackle, and both guard and tackle.
"I dont have any sacks yet because nobody is passing yet or they're getting rid of it real fast," Coleman said. "I have 20 tackles including five for loss so far. I just want to help my team start winning. That's what matters."
Coleman, a full academic qualifier, said he's enjoying the recruiting process so far. In fact, he took his first official visit this past weekend.
"I went up to Colorado," he said. "It went well, real nice. They got hammered but after the game they said I would have a chance to play early. They'll get better and it's a good program."
In addition to the Buffs, several other schools have been calling Coleman this month.
"All of my favorites have called me this month," he said. "Miami, Tennessee, Colorado, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and UCLA. They have all called and they have all offered. Even though I liked it at Colorado, I dont have anything to compare it to. So I really can't say who's 1, 2, 3, and stuff like that. I like them all and need to take some visits before I know what's going on."
Coleman talked more about the Hurricanes,
"I'm supposed to visit Miami in December," he said. "But we haven't set the exact date yet because it will depend on the playoff situation. I'm definitely going to visit Miami but we just have to set the date. I talked to them this past week. I think it's a nice situation. They're the defending national champions and they're still No. 1. The coaches told me almost all their starters and backups are seniors and that I would have a chance to come in and compete for early playing time. I'm about doing that at Miami."
Coleman said he'd like to take some more visits during the season.
"I'd like to take all my visits and be able to make a final decision sometime in late December, like around Christmas."
