Coleman Still At Six

Jaylen Coleman will drop by Pitt's prospect camp next week.

Jaylen Coleman has already claimed Pitt as his leader, but that hasn't scared other teams off quite yet. He picked up a couple of new offers to start the month of May, and even has some other schools coming in.

"I got Syracuse and Cincinnati last month," Coleman added. "Temple offered me last week, for defense. That's it for now. Maryland is going to come down and see me, so that would be good. If they came in and offered, that would make seven."

Coleman says through everything, the Pitt coaching staff has stayed on top of their recruiting of him. He feels in a way it's been hard to not commit to them.

"All the (college) coaches like you, and want you to go to their school," Coleman said. "You'll be happy about something, but you can get confused. The Pitt coaches, they all see me, they e-mail me. (Head) coach (Todd) Graham called the school, wanting to talk to me. (Co-defensive coordinator Keith) Patterson, (defensive backs) coach (Tony) Gibson came by the school. They all want me to sign with Pitt. I like Pitt a lot."

Recently, Coleman went up to Chicago for another Badger Sports 7-on-7 competition. He liked the competition at the event, but there were also stops at Purdue and Notre Dame built in to the trip, a benefit for him and his 7-on-7 teammates.

"Purdue, they said they were going to offer," Coleman added. "They said I can play running back or linebacker. I had a chance to go down and at least see what they have to offer."

While Coleman doesn't expect too many camps as part of his summer schedule, he will head to Pitt to just watch camp and meet with the coaches on either June 10 or 11. He will go to Cincinnati to do the same thing on June 12. A decision could come from Coleman soon after that. He also has another 7-on-7 tournament later in June down in Florida.

"The (Pitt) coaches just want me to come down, come around and watch the camps," Coleman said. "Cincinnati and Syracuse want me to come out too."
