Before September, Bishop McNamara (Forestville, MD) wide receiver Brandon Coleman still hopes to narrow his list of double-digit scholarship offers to single digits, but as of now the 6-6, 200-pound prospect has yet to do so. The talented athlete continues to consider all 13 Division 1A offers he received.

“I can’t quite say my favorites yet, but in due time,” Coleman said.

Both of the state of Virginia’s ACC programs continue to be in the running with the second-team all-WCAC selection. Coleman visited Virginia twice this year and Tech once and came away impressed by each experience. Still, he didn’t tip his hand as to whether one or both would make the cut.

“UVa is still high on my list and Virginia Tech is high as well, but I haven’t set my mind on a numerical top five yet. By the end of August, I should,” Coleman said.

Virginia Tech is one of three likely official visit destinations here, joining Rutgers and Wake Forest. Coleman had hoped to visit Tech and Wake unofficially in July or August but was not able to do so.

“Unfortunately, I couldn’t set any more visits before school starts,” Coleman said. “I didn’t get to go to Wake Forest or Virginia Tech again but I look forward to my officials there.”

With the exception of narrowing his list of schools to five, Coleman will now turn his attention primarily to the gridiron. He plans to make official visits after Bishop McNamara’s season comes to an end.

“Everything will happen after the season. This season comes first,” Coleman said.

At wide receiver, Coleman hauled in 35 receptions for 550 yards and eight touchdowns last season as a junior. Wide receiver appears to be where he’ll play initially on the next level, though, with the 6-6 frame, playing an H-back or tight end role could be possibilities as well.

“Many schools have mentioned moving me around,” Coleman said. “I’m cool with that. In fact, my coach has been preparing me for it so I will be able to adapt.”
