Quarterback/athlete Michael Coleman (6-2, 225, 4.5) from San Bernardino (Calif.) Arroyo Valley has seen his stock get as hot as the weather has been in Southern California lately. Arroyo Valley has received a lot of visitors lately and one school has tendered Coleman his first offer.
“Utah offered Michael two days ago,” Arroyo Valley head coach Tony Di Thomas. “He is the prototype quarterback for Utah’s offense.”
“He already runs the no-huddle with us,” Di Thomas said. “Utah runs a lot of no-huddle.”

The USC Trojans are showing a lot of interest in Coleman.
“USC likes him as an athlete,” Di Thomas said. “The Trojans like as a weak side linebacker.”
Coleman will attend USC’s two-day camp in June and he will be playing linebacker. If USC likes what they see, Coleman could get an offer from the Trojans.
“Notre Dame will be coming out to watch Michael practice on May 17th or 18th,” Di Thomas said. “The Nebraska Cornhuskers are scheduled to come by the school today (May 5th).”
“We haven’t had Nebraska on campus for awhile,” Di Thomas said. “That should tell you something about Michael.”
“Cal was on campus yesterday (May 4th),” Di Thomas said. “The Cal assistant coach saw tape of Michael and said to me ‘I know get a lot of requests for tape but could you mark mine urgent.’ We did.”
Washington and Washington State have also been by the school and Oregon is scheduled to come by this week.
UCLA is also going to come by school in the very near future.
