Who is the late leader for 4-star WR Coleman?

Four-star receiver Brandon Coleman is a high priority for both Rutgers and Maryland. Lately, the recruitment of the Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Md.) star has increased even more. He has long maintained Rutgers as the leader, but with signing day just two days away and his concentration on the matter at an apex, what is Coleman thinking? Does he have a new leader?

With signing day approaching and more and more people wondering where four-star receiver Brandon Coleman is heading, he knows time is getting tight.

The 6-foot-6, 200-pound Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Pa.) product also has another message, and it is the same thing he has been saying for months.

Has anything changed as far as a leader?

"No,'' Coleman said.

Is Rutgers still in the lead?

"Yes,'' he said.

Coleman has long maintained that stance, and recently cut his school choices to Rutgers and Maryland when he eliminated Syracuse from the sweepstakes. He will make the announcement Wednesday during a ceremony at Bishop McNamara.

Coleman's stance comes after he spent the weekend discussing the matter with his parents. He emerged from the brainstorming sessions with the Scarlet Knights still in the lead, but he is not ready to make his intentions known.

"I'm going to just talk it over with my family,'' Coleman said. "I will probably call the school that I won't be going to and let them know, and then I'll announce it on Wednesday.''

Coleman added he will spend the next 24 hours thinking about his decision.

"I'll just go with my gut feeling and pray on it,'' Coleman said. "I don't want to put too much more pressure on it, especially on myself, than I need to.''

Coleman is aware plenty of folks are wondering where he will be going, and is handling it in a very mature way.

"That's to be expected,'' Coleman said of the interest. "I guess you could call it pressure, but it's to be expected.''
