It's been almost a month since Marcus Coleman's high school career came to an end with a loss in the state section finals. Wayzata (Plymouth, Minn.) ended the season 8-3, falling short of its expectations.
"We didn't meet our goals, so I guess you can say the season was a little bit of a disappointment. I expected a lot more, but there's not much I can do about it now," Coleman said.
Now the 6-6, 300-pound offensive tackle is focused on his four official visits, the first of which was last weekend at Iowa. Coleman had a great time on his Iowa visit, and the Hawkeyes are definitely in the running.
But Coleman wants to check out his final three trips before sitting down to make a decision around Christmas. He will visit Illinois Dec. 6, Kansas State Dec. 13 and Wisconsin Dec. 20.
Coleman is a lifelong Illinois fan, but said he's not sure if that will enter into his decision at all.
"All of the schools are the same right now," Coleman said. "I'm going to see how all of the visits go, and I want some time to think about it, around Christmas."
Coleman said he got a feeling for most of the coaching staffs at camps last summer, but he's anxious to see what the players have to say on his visits.
"I want to go out with the players, see how the questions and stuff go," Coleman said. "We'll see over the next month or so."
Coleman said Wisconsin is definitely high on his list.
"I like Coach (Jim) Hueber a lot, and I think I fit in well at Wisconsin. I like the way we coaches. I think they have a pretty old line right now," Coleman said. "They have three seniors on the o-line, so as far as that goes, it looks pretty good."
Coleman is not involved in any winter sports, so he is focusing his free time on offseason weightlifting in preparation for next year.
