Tevin Coleman Earns New Offer

With Jerry Kill looking to add more speed and athleticism to Minnesota, he has recently turned to Oak Forest (Ill.) running back Tevin Coleman. Scout.com is reporting that the Gophers have just offered the 6-foot-1, 190-pound back.

Earlier today Scout's Allen Trieu reported that the Gophers have just offered Coleman, the 56th-ranked running back in the country.

Coleman confirmed his offer with GoldenSports.net. "Yes I got an offer from Minnesota," he said. Recruiting is going great.

"The [Minnesota] coach told my coach that they offered me but it was after school so I have to call the Minnesota coach tonight," Coleman explained.

Coleman is a 6-foot-1, 190-pounder out of Illinois who now holds offers from the likes of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Purdue, and Syracuse among others.
