Coleman A Big Target

At 6'6, Brandon Coleman is literally a big target at wide receiver for Bishop McNamara High School. The talented playmaker is also a big target on the recruiting trail for many Division I schools. Recently, Coleman made the trip to Winston-Salem to check out Jim Grobe's program.

Between their junior and senior seasons, many football prospects see an explosion in their recruitment. Brandon Coleman is no exception. The talented wide receiver prospect has great size, good speed, and solid hands which help make him a big match-up problem.

But, in Coleman's opinion, what separates him from other receivers is his mental approach to the game. "I think I have a good knowledge of the game and I am able to recognize what kind of defenses are being thrown at me and I am able to adjust," said Coleman.

His performance has resulted in multiple offers at this point. "Recruiting has been very interesting so far. My high school coaches helped prepare me for the process so I was ready for it. I'm just visiting a lot of schools right now and comparing and contrasting all of them. It has been fun so far."

Coleman has multiple offers and has been able to visit quite a few of those schools at this point. "I have offers from Rutgers, Maryland, Virginia, Wake, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Notre Dame, Stanford, UConn, and Pitt. I have visited Rutgers, Wake, Virginia, and Maryland so far."

Recently, Coleman visited Wake Forest for their spring game and came away impressed with what he saw. "My trip to Wake was very interesting. I really enjoyed the game and the visit. I was able to tour the campus as well as the football facilities which were really nice. I was also able to talk with Coach Grobe and Coach Lambert as well as a few of the players."

So what is Coleman looking for in a school? "The main thing is I want to feel comfortable with the players and coaches as well as the other students and the teachers. Academics are also very important to me. I want to study engineering or kinesiology in college."

Coleman made it clear he has no favorite at this point and plans to wait until his senior season to make a college choice.
