Texas Target off the Board

Fort Bend defensive end Jeremy Coleman was one of the most impressive prospects in attendance at Texas' second junior day in late February. A bevy of schools came by Marshall High School over the past few weeks to watch Coleman during spring practice, but none of that matters anymore. He gave his verbal pledge to an in-state school earlier this week and is very excited about his decision.

"A couple of days ago, I committed to TCU," Jeremy Coleman said. "I'm very excited about it."

Coleman had picked up offers from Missouri and Houston during the past month raising his offer total to eight. He chose TCU over Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Houston, Missouri, Indiana and Tulsa.

Coleman's verbal pledge hasn't stopped other schools from stopping in during spring practice.

"Coach Williamson from TCU has been by," Coleman said. "The coach from Tulsa has been by. The Texas coaches have been by, and Coach Franchione and Coach Malone from Texas A&M have been by."

Despite all the attention he has been getting from other schools, Coleman says that he is solid with TCU.

"Yes sir, I am solid with TCU. I can't wait to get up there," Coleman said. "Their defensive coaches are good coaches. They were showing me a lot of respect during my unofficial visit. I know from a player standpoint that they have a lot of Houston guys."

At TCU, Coleman will not be the only former Marshall High School prospect on campus. Three-star running back Jamarion Cavness from the class of 2007 is also heading to TCU.

"I have played with Jai Cavness for a long time. He is one of my best friends. He will be up there this summer," Coleman said.
