Coleman Holding Double Digits
Will Coleman profile "Our season is going really good," said Coleman. "We are one of on six JuCos in the nation that is still undefeated. "I like the way everything is going so far." Coleman believes his freshman year provided him with the chance to grow and learn. As a sophomore he is reaping the benefits from the lessons learned a season ago. "I feel like I am playing as a division one athlete, talent wise," explained Coleman. "I still don't feel like I playing to my full potential though. "We have a new defensive line coach this year, so we're all just really getting used to each other. "I feel like I am playing pretty good right now and I expect some good things the rest of the season." Several major college programs have offered Coleman a scholarship. The Tyler Junior college product is still collecting offers even though his offer tally has already hit double digits. "I have offers from Texas Tech. Arizona State, Mississippi State, North Texas, USF, Southern Miss, Memphis, West Virginia, Colorado State, Houston and a couple more," said Coleman. "The schools that are making me a priority are Texas Tech, Arizona State, Mississippi State and West Virginia. "Those four keep in touch with me weekly and they keep me updated with mail. They let me know that I am constantly on their minds. "They all want me to come in and play next year and they are telling me how much they need me. "Some other schools send the offer and are like 'if he comes here, he comes here, great'. "The main schools are telling me that they need me to come right in and make an impact." To date, Coleman has not taken an official visit or scheduled any. "I probably won't take any visits until after the season," said Coleman. "I have talked with some of the schools about visits. "I haven't set anything up and I know there are going to be some other schools that show up while I am deciding what school to go to. "I know I am going to visit Texas Tech, Arizona State, Mississippi State and probably West Virginia. "All of that could change though. You never know may end up offering after the season." The school that signs Coleman will not be able to get him on campus until next summer. Coleman reports that he will not graduate from Tyler until the spring. While some schools may elect to take a pass due to his projected enrollment, Coleman believes he has some quality options to consider. "I am looking for some tradition and where things are stable," said Coleman. "I don't want to go anywhere that the coach may be on the hot seat. "I want to go somewhere to compete for a national championship and conference championships. "I want to go somewhere to win and where I can develop my skills and have a good chance of getting to the next level."
