Raymore (Mo.) Raymore-Peculiar tight end Chase Coffman has reached a slower portion of the recruiting process now that the spring contact period has ended.
“Recruiting has reached kind of a lull,” Coffman’s father Paul said. “He still has the nine scholarship offers, and he’s trying to sift through what’s best for him. He’s looking at all of the schools that are interested in him, but he really is interested in four schools.”
The four schools that are high on the 6-foot-6, 210-pound Coffman’s list are Iowa, Kansas State, Missouri and Nebraska.
“I think he kind of wants to be able to stay within a three or four hour drive from Kansas City,” the elder Coffman said. “Those four will probably be four of the schools he visits. But, right now, Chase is kind of tired of the recruiting process right now. It’s kind of nice that it is slower now and the coaches can’t be calling.”
Coffman has been working on his game in 7-on-7 games and will get the chance to show his skills later this month in a tournament.
“Chase has been playing each Tuesday in 7-on-7 games. There is a tournament coming up that his team will be playing in, so he’ll have a few more games to play in for that. It will help him out for this fall. He is worried about this upcoming season first of all. That is his top goal right now, to have a good senior season.”
