No Wisconsin Visit Yet For Coleman

Pittsburgh (PA) Peabody linebacker Jaylen Coleman now holds three offers, as he gets more coaches from some different schools stopping by his school.

Recently, Jaylen Coleman wanted to get a visit up to Wisconsin for their spring game, where he was expected to pick up a verbal offer from the Badgers. He wasn't able to make it, but that doesn't mean the Badgers are out of it and it doesn't mean that changes his offer status.

"I wasn't able to make it this weekend, I haven't made it yet," Coleman said. "They did tell me, ‘You have nothing to worry about,' so that's good."

Recently, coaches from Akron and Eastern Michigan—his most recent offer—stopped by his school. Michigan is also expected to come by Peabody later this week. There's also another Big Ten school possibly jumping in the mix.

"I think my coach was telling me that Iowa was coming by," Coleman added. "Outside of that, I don't really know right now (who else is visiting his school). I'm heading to West Virginia this Friday for the spring game. I'm definitely going down there."

Coleman also keeps regular tabs with Pittsburgh, his favorite at the moment.

"I haven't been down there lately because I've been training, working hard," Coleman said. "I e-mail (linebackers) coach (Keith) Patterson. I'll be down there soon."

Coleman will be one of a number of prospects from Pennsylvania at the Penn State Nike Football Training Camp this weekend. At the very least, he sees it as an opportunity to reconnect with some of the friends he has made in this type of environment—players from other schools, who are also getting offers from a number of schools.

"I'm going to be up there, I can't wait for it," Coleman said. "That should be good, with all the position drills. I talked to Demetrious Cox, and he said he was going up there too."

Coleman was hoping to go to the Rutgers spring game, but obviously won't because of a conflict with the Penn State Nike Football Training Camp. He is also heading down to a 7-on-7 tournament in Florida with his 7-on-7 team later in June.
