Rutgers on Top for WR Coleman

Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic three-star receiver Gene Coleman broke down his latest visit to Rutgers, and why the Scarlet Knights are on top after he spent Saturday on campus as a part of junior day.

Rutgers made a strong impression Saturday with Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic receiver Gene Coleman, who has the Scarlet Knights on top.

Coleman visited Rutgers alongside friends and teammates for junior day. He left happy with the experience.

“Overall, I’d say they’re probably No. 1 right now,” Coleman said. “I have a great relationship with all of the coaches. I know a whole bunch of guys on the team, and a whole bunch of guys that plan on possibly coming as well.”

The three-star Coleman holds a Syracuse offer, and has unofficial visits scheduled to North Carolina and Penn State.

He plays at Bergen Catholic under coach Nunzio Campanile, whose brother Anthony Campanile coaches at Rutgers. Coleman said he is also close with new Rutgers offensive coordinator Ben McDaniels.

“Coach McDaniels is a great coach and a great guy,” Coleman said. “I’m extremely happy to possible play for coach Campnaile as my receivers coach. He’s my third [Campanile].”

Coleman visited with teammates, and spent time hanging out with Rutgers commit Mohamed Jabbie and Wayne (N.J.) DePaul cornerback Hasise Dubois.

“It was fun being with all of the guys out there,” Coleman said. “It’s a great atmosphere for me. I think we all had a really good time. It’s fun being here with them. It makes the experience better. It’s great visiting with guys on your team. You don’t have to go through anything alone.”
