New school comes on for Coulter

It can be tough for JUCO signal-callers to garner notice, but Santa Ana QB Micheal Coulter (6-3, 205) is having an outstanding season leading the Dons to a 4-3 record on the season. caught up with the gifted passer recently and he updated us on things including what took him to Santa Ana in the first place.

Coulter enjoyed an outstanding prep career at El Dorado High School in Placentia, California and signed with Syracuse as a preferred walk-on in 2007.

"I really had a lot of fun there and enjoyed myself, but I blew out my left knee and tore my ACL, so it was a matter of coming back here and working on healing up," Coulter told recently. "I mean, I was ready to stay there and work hard and possibly earn a scholarship, but with my knee, I had to make a decision."

So far this year, Coulter is having a great season completing 121 of 236 passes for 1,668 yards, 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions and he's also managed to rush for a touchdown as well.

"I'm able to scramble and run around if I need to, but mostly I'm a drop-back guy," Coulter said. "I would rather toss it around and let the other guys get hit, but I can keep defenses honest with my legs too, especially now that my leg is back to 100-percent."

On the recruiting front, Arizona State has made it known they like what they've seen from him and have inquired about his services in the near future.

"Honestly, I don't know which schools are looking at me because most of them have been talking to my coaches," Coulter said. "I'm open to everyone though and I just want a chance to show people what I can and have a chance to play at the next level."

Because Coulter redshirted his one year at Syracuse, following this season he'll have three years to play three and he'll be able to sign in December.

We'll continue to track Coulter's progress and update things as they change.
