Mobile (Ala.) Williamson linebacker Antonio Coleman helped lead his team into the playoffs with a win over McAdory Friday night. Then on Saturday he headed to Tuscaloosa to watch the showdown between Alabama and Auburn.
“I took a shot right to the knee right before halftime Friday night,” Coleman said. “I came back in the second half and played real well. It was a hard fought game, but we pulled it out in the end.”
The 6-foot-1.5, 216-pound Coleman ran the 40-yard dash in 4.88 seconds at the NIKE camp, but showed his athleticism, by running the shuttle in 4.43 seconds.
“I went to the Iron Bowl on Saturday,” Coleman said. “It was an alright game. It was a real defensive struggle, but I think most people knew it would be. I talked to coach Wyatt, Shula and Randolph while I was there. They talked to me about setting up an official visit, but I am going to wait until the season is over to do that.”
Coleman lists Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Tennessee and Virginia as his top five and has offers from all five. He plays defensive end for his high school team, where he often has to fend off triple teams, but projects as an outside linebacker in college.
