Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall linebacker Jeremy Coleman is taking his recruiting process fairly slow. That's considering the fact he's got his first three offers in hand and on the verge of several others.
Coleman, who could be either a defensive end or linebacker at the next level, made his way to the Rivals.com Junior Day at Rice University recently and reported where things stand with recruiting.
"Texas Tech, Baylor, and Oklahoma State have offered," Coleman said. "I like all the schools that are talking me. My favorite has got to be Texas. I grew up liking them and I love the history of the university and everything about it."

Coleman says that what position he'll play on the next level is up in the air. He says that Oklahoma is a school that likes his long-term potential as a linebacker.
"They say they see me in the SAM linebacker position," Coleman said. "I see myself as either an outside linebacker or a defensive end. Oklahoma saw me last spring and they said they liked me at linebacker."
Nebraska and Texas are junior day visits that Coleman says he's considering. Coming to the Rivals.com Junior Day certainly prepared him for upcoming visits like those and the rest of the recruiting process.
"I learned more than I know about the recruiting process," he said. "I learned how this is a very important step in one's life. You have the make the best choice because it's going to affect you for the next four or five years."
