Coleman on RU visit: "It went real well"

Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Md.) receiver Brandon Coleman has long had Rutgers high on his list, and last weekend he kicked off his official visit tour by heading to New Jersey. Not only did Coleman check out the game against West Virginia, but he also learned plenty about the school he did not know. And what did the coaching staff do Coleman really respected? ScarletReport.com has the answer.

Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Md.) four-star receiver Brandon Coleman already knew plenty about Rutgers, but he wanted to see more detailed things about the school.

So, during his official visit over the weekend, Coleman was eager to check the ins and outs of the program and the school, and he left satisfied.

"It went real well,'' Coleman said. "Everyone seemed to be themselves. The players were good with me, and the coaches were good with me. It was very helpful and I could see the professors were supportive of the football team, and supportive of the student-athletes as well.

"I got to see everything. I got to see the dorms, the student center. I went to the game, they took us out to dinner, had lunch a couple of times, hung out with some of the players.''

The 6-foot-6, 200-pound Coleman was hosted by freshman receiver Mohamed Sanu, which makes sense since it would give Coleman a chance to talk about how the Scarlet Knights use a big receiver in the passing game.

And during conversations with the coaching staff, Coleman said his inclusion in the offense was further mapped out.

"They see me moving around in the offense,'' Coleman said. "They said they would be moving me from the inside to the outside. They talked to me about being able to make plays.'

' The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Sanu made an impact in several areas, most notably in the "Wildcat'' package, but that is not something Coleman envisions for himself.

"Not necessarily the wildcat, but I give them a lot of opportunities,'' Coleman said. "And they could move me around, and not just use me in the red zone.''

Another thing Coleman appreciated was the low-pressure approach of the Scarlet Knights coaching staff.

"They weren't trying to pressure me, and that was something I respect,'' Coleman said. "The only thing I'm concerned about is waiting too late and spots filling up.''

Still, Coleman said he would not decide on a college until his official visits were complete. He is scheduled to visit Maryland this coming weekend and is planning a trip to Syracuse for mid-January.
