Syracuse held their first camp Friday night despite some less than ideal weather. During the camp, a 2015 quarterback prospect impressed the Orange coaches. Brandon Coleman out of Stepinac High in White Plains (NY) says he was able to battle the elements to let his talent shine through.
"Although the rain made it extremely difficult, we made it through the camp," Coleman explained. "We ran 40s, shuttles, 3 cone drills, and did the broad jump. I ran a 4.7 40 and 4.4 shuttle. I performed fairly well amongst all the drills. Even though the rain made it very slippery."
Coleman was able to spend some time with Tim Lester and get feedback about his game. He says the feedback he received was mostly positive and could result in the Orange showing interest down the road.
"I talked to the quarterbacks coach (Tim Lester)," Coleman said. "He seemed to be impressed. I ran through one on one drills and connected with a fade route touchdown. Also in the mechanical period I had some of the best feet and follow through among the group.
Coach complimented me on several passes and liked my ball placement on several plays. He said they would take a better look at me for 2015. He said I'm definitely someone on the radar."
If Syracuse does recruit Coleman, he says the interest would be mutual.
"I would love to go Syracuse," Coleman admitted. "It's always been a dream being that I'm from New York and it being such a big school. Even to pick up significant interest would be a blessing."
