Moore Impresses Coleman

Syracuse has their eye on a huge target at wide receiver in Forestville, Md., product Brandon Coleman, however after this weekend's official visit, it sounds like the Orange still have some work to do if they want his name on the dotted line this February.

Brandon Coleman has the size at 6-foot-6, 200 pounds to create match-up problems all over the field for an offense and the Syracuse coaching staff is trying to reel in the Bishop McNamara High School athlete right now. Coleman took his official visit to Syracuse this past weekend and while he still maintains that the Scarlet Knights lead for his services, he also admits Syracuse is in the mix for that top spot.

"I had a really good time up there and it opened my eyes to a lot of what Syracuse had to offer," Coleman said. "My host was Alec Lemon who is from the same area as me which was cool and then I got to hang out with a lot of the players and get their opinion of what was going on. I could see that everyone was on the same page and that there was a lot of team chemistry which was great."

"I had conversations with Coach (Doug) Marrone, Coach (Bob) Casullo and Coach Rob Moore and they were all good people," Coleman added. "It was truly a great experience getting to know Coach Moore as a person as he's truly a great man and a leader. I think he was a great fit for Syracuse as he was a tremendous player and knows a lot about football. I know he would definitely help my game and take me to the next level and master what I do if I went there."

"The overall feel from the staff that I got is that they really wanted me to be a part of their program and help them to build something special at Syracuse. Coach Doug Marrone is a very special coach and comes off as a developer of young men. I got that same feeling from the players I met as they all were on the same page with the coaches."

Coleman admitted that despite the official visit, Rutgers still holds the lead.

"Rutgers is my leader and I'm looking at Maryland and Syracuse too," Coleman mentioned. "I'm done taking visits at this point, so now it just comes down to talking to my family about which school is the best place for me to go. I have a few weeks to make my decision, so I'll definitely wait until signing day. Syracuse definitely has a chance in this though."

Coleman caught 40 passes for 336 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior at Bishop McNamara.
