After a 2-0 start, the 2008 class is getting a lot of recognition at Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall, especially on the defensive line.
Led by blue-chip junior defensive end Jeremy Coleman, this 6-foot-3, 237-pounder is being compared to other top juniors both inside and outside the Greater Houston area. However, he's not the only 2008 stud on the defensive line that looks to get Division I interest.
"Coaches are really calling about Coleman," Marshall coach Michael O 'Guin said. "He gets a crate of mail every other day. Schools like Florida State, Miami, Oklahoma, UCLA, USC, Notre Dame, and then I've had calls from Iowa State and Nebraska."
Senior defensive end Tyrone Sonier, committed to Kansas State, was defensive lineman of the week for the team after a strong showing against Hastings and Coleman was defensive lineman of the week after a big game against Fort Bend Dulles.
One junior, safety Kristophar Rhymes suffered an injury to his knee, but will make a full recovery. He had a great off-season and looks to be a top prospect next spring.
Defensive back Kendrick Matthews has also played well. However, junior defensive lineman Leonard James and Steven Ogebedle seem to be attracting attention right along with Coleman.
Ogabedle recently transferred from Fort Bend Bush.
"He'll be eligible this Friday for us," O'Guin said. "He looks really good and in practice, it's hard to stop him. He'll be a weakside defensive end for us."
