2010 wide receiver Brandon Coleman is a rare talent. The Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara prospect has remarkable size for a wideout, 6-foot-6, 205-pounds. That has already gotten a couple schools to pull the trigger and more are interested.
"He's got one official offer from Maryland and Boston College has offered as well," Coleman's father, Zachary said. "He's getting a lot of interest from other schools. A couple other schools said they would offer, we haven't seen anything yet.
"We are hearing from Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, Rutgers and West Virginia."
So far Coleman hasn't taken visits, but expects to this spring.
He's keeping busy according to his father.
"He's going into basketball now, he's very busy," he said. "Colleges are calling him for that and he's not favoring either sport right now. Most teams like him as a four or five."
Does the junior prospect like anybody?
"There's no one outright," he said. "He's searching first and foremost for a quality education and a good environment. Obviously he wants a school that passes just as much as they can run."
Coleman and Bishop McNamara just wrapped up the season with a loss to Good Counsel.
"Brandon has been consistent this year," he said. "I think his best attributes as a player are his height and speed.
"Normally you don't expect speed at that height. Then, he plays basketball too so he's good at positioning himself and has good field awareness.
"He still needs to work on his strength, get a little stronger. That's the biggest challenge."
