Coleman Checks On Pitt Again

Pittsburgh (PA) Peabody linebacker Jaylen Coleman already has a Pitt offer, but was back at Pitt for last Saturday's practice, and will be back again this Saturday.

Pittsburgh (PA) Peabody linebacker already has a Pitt offer, but that doesn't mean he's not eager to learn more about the hometown Pitt Panthers. Coleman was one of a handful of prospects in attendance at Saturday's practice.

"It was real good," Coleman said. "I had a real fun time. After that, I was on the field, on field with the coaches seeing Tino Sunseri and the other quarterbacks competing."

Much has been talked about the fast-tempo of Pitt's practices. Coleman said that was the most noticeable difference about being there Saturday, as opposed to his last visit, when he came to Pitt for its junior day.

"It was real good, the tempo was high pace, and I like that," Coleman said. "It was real good. Then, I went and watched the o-line and d-line going at each other."

Coleman also spent some time watching the linebackers, the position that Pitt is recruiting him for. He noticed that Pitt's linebackers don't have as much responsibility as what he's used to playing in, where it's one middle linebacker making all the calls.

"That was good, watching the linebackers," Coleman said. "But, where I come from, the middle linebacker is the captain on the defense, the general making the calls, all the calls. I was getting used to that."

Coleman will be back at Pitt's practice on Saturday. He also has future unofficial visits planned for Wisconsin on April 24 and Toledo on March 29. Toledo is his other offer, while he is expected to receive an offer from Wisconsin when he gets to their campus. He has also scheduled unofficial visits to UConn, Penn State and N.C. State.
