Bishop McNamara (Forestville, MD) wide receiver Brandon Coleman , a 6-6 prospect that has garnered 13 Division 1A offers, made a round of college visits recently and hopes to make more soon. A second-team all-WCAC selection in 2008, Coleman is hoping to narrow his list of schools to at least five before the start of his senior season.
Coleman discussed four of those recent visits, beginning with a trip to UVa on June 13th. He has also visited Rutgers, Connecticut and Maryland.
“UVa went well for my mother and I,” said Coleman. “It was very informative. We met a lot of people, talked to some players and talked plays with Coach [Latrell] Scott. It was an overall nice day.
“Rutgers stood out because they set me up with the dean of the school, which was nice, and we just talked about a wide variety of things from school to football to networking. He is a good guy. I literally had the day to myself, so I liked the attention. I felt comfortable and there was no pressure.
“U-Conn went well. That was my first visit there and I enjoyed it. I met with the head coach and he showed me around the campus and then later I talked plays with the offensive coordinator and the wide receiver coach. The facilities were nice and the coaching staff was cool. They showed me everything they had to offer, so that was overall a good experience.
“Maryland stood out this time because I talked with the Athletic Director, Dr. Yow. That conversation went well. She was very impressed with me. They always make me feel at home whenever I’m around.”
Coleman is interested in Wake Forest but is not sure when he’ll be able to visit Winston-Salem. He does intend to visit Virginia Tech, but at this point no date has been scheduled. He attended Tech’s Spring Game in April and looks forward to a return trip.
“So far as Virginia Tech, I would like to visit them on one of the Saturdays in July, but it won’t be on the 11th (Virginia Tech’s senior camp) because of a prior family engagement,” Coleman said.
Coleman is not sure if he’ll narrow his list to three or five, but he knows it’ll be at least three.
“I know I want to take at least three official visits,” he said.
Other offers, besides the offers from the schools mentioned above, include Boston College, Notre Dame and Stanford. A big-time athlete who is an accomplished basketball...
