New offer rolls in for Husky commit

When Walnut (Ca.) ATH Aubrey Coleman committed to Washington it appeared to come out of nowhere from a program that doesn't produce a lot of D-1 talent. However, now that he's made his intentions known, he's picked up one more Pac 10 offer and another big-time school has made it known they like what he brings to the table…

"I got offered by Arizona State pretty recently and USC just stopped by and met with my coaches," Coleman told Monday evening. "They told my coaches they like me a lot and what I can do on the football field, but they haven't offered me yet.

"Arizona State offered me a little while ago and they said they like me at a few positions, but it looks like they want me at tight end more."

As a receiver, the 6-foot-6, 215-pound Coleman hauled in 33 receptions for 445 yards and three touchdowns last year while recording 57 tackles and 3.5 sacks on the defensive side of the ball from his safety position.

"Washington got on me first and I talk to coach (Demetrice) Martin once a week just to check in with him," Coleman said. "He just makes sure I'm still committed and that I am still feeling them and I tell him ‘yep, I'm a Dawg'.

"He wants me to come up for their camp in June so that's something I'm trying to work out. I just got done paying a lot of money for prom, so funds are kind of tight right now, but I really would like to get up their for camp to meet all of the coaches and to see the school."

With all the increased attention, the question had to be asked: Is he still a solid commit to the Huskies?

"Oh yeah, I'm totally set with them," Coleman said. "I mean, it's flattering hearing from these other schools and it's great getting offers and stuff, but Washington was the first to offer me and I take that into consideration when I have all these new schools looking at me."

When he committed, it came out that Coleman had some work to do in the classroom and he said that he's on the program that has been laid out in front of him by his counselors as well as his coaches.

"They have told me what I needed to do to get qualified," Coleman said. "I've been doing all the work and I'm just going to focus on that and working out this summer."

We'll have more from Coleman as he gets closer to possibly making the trek north for camp in June.
