Josiah Coatney
Douglasville, GA
Holmes CC
6-foot-5, 285
Alabama (offer), South Carolina (offer) and Ole Miss (offer)
Scout.com Ranking: NR

Scout.com evaluation: Josiah played every position on Holmes CC's defensive line as a freshman. He lined up at nose guard, defensive tackle and end. The MACJC First Team All-State selection collected 46 tackles, 3 sacks and returned an interception and fumble for a touchdown as a freshman.

Coatney is very strong at the point of attack and has strong hands. He shows a good burst coming out of his stance but will need to continue to work on staying lower for leverage. The former Chapel Hill standout uses a variety of different moves. He likes to bull rush but shows a good spin move to shed a block. We like the way his motor runs and continues to pursue the ball down the field.

Alabama, South Carolina and Ole Miss all offered this week. Look for more to come.
