Texas DT adds fourth offer

The total offers for Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall defensive tackle Jeremy Coleman has risen to four.
Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Baylor were the first three but the 6-foot-2, 245-pounder says TCU has joined the offer group. Coleman is impressed and has backed off of having any favorite schools right now. This Houston-area prospect is keeping an open mind and taking some trips next month.
"I'm just working out and getting ready for the spring," Coleman said. "TCU has offered now as well. I think they have a very good school. I really like them and it's also close to home."
Earlier, Coleman had said that Oklahoma and Texas were higher than the others. Today, he says he's keeping his option more open.
"I don't really have favorites, but those are just two schools that I've liked for a while and would like to go to," Coleman said. "I'm keeping all the school as choices in my mind."
Coleman says that in April he plans to attend the NIKE Training Camp along with an unofficial visit to TCU. He doesn't want to make his commitment to any school until the summer or fall. Texas A&M is also showing Coleman steady interest.
"Texas Tech and Texas A&M I would say (are recruiting the hardest)," he said. "They send mail, check up on me, give me dates for things they're having at the school like spring practices, junior days, and all that. A&M says they're going to come see me more and figure out where I'm going to play during the spring."
So where does Coleman plan to line up at the next level?
"Most people are talking about defensive end or defensive tackle," Coleman said. "It really doesn't matter to me. I think I prefer defensive end though. I like the position, I've been playing it for a while, and that's what I'm good at."
