Coleman currently lines up at running back and receiver, as well as at cornerback and free safety on defense. The only thing that might be more impressive than Coleman's versatility is his speed. The Richardson athlete claims to have registered multiple sub-4.3 second 40-yard dash times.
"I went to the Old Coach combine last December and I ran a 4.28 forty time. I also won the ‘Camp Performance Champion' award there," said Coleman.
Coleman's athletic ability and sophomore season performance have caught the attention of some of the heavy-heavy hitters in the area. He currently holds a verbal offer from a major Big-12 program and is hearing from several others.
Why have so many premier college football programs been expressing interest in the 5-foot-11, 180-pound athlete?
"I make great cuts and I have very good agility. I can cut really fast to the left or the right. I also have elite hands, I also have great speed."
This summer Coleman has been working hard to prepare himself for his upcoming junior season. He recently gained five pounds of muscle and has been focusing on improving his strength and his technique.
Coleman and his teammates are confident that the work they put in this summer will help them advance past the first-round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated last year.
"We lost in the first-round of the playoffs last year. But I think we're going to be stronger this year. We've been working real hard in the off-season and we think we have a chance to go to state."
Coleman is being recruited to play multiple positions at this point, although he prefers to line up at running back or cornerback.
"Oklahoma is recruiting me as a corner, Arkansas likes me at receiver and Texas likes me as a corner. Oklahoma State offered me as an athlete."
Coleman registered 707 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, along with 229 receiving yards and a touchdown as a sophomore.
