Jayden Coleman, a Class of 2024 three-star athlete out of Central High School in Phenix City, Alabama, has narrowed his school choice down to ten, and Penn State has made the list.
Penn State is in the mix with Arkansas, Auburn, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Pitt, Tennessee, and Texas A&M.
Coleman, who is 5-foot-10, 178 pounds, has 11 power five offers and is currently the No. 20 player in Alabama, the No. 45 cornerback, and the No. 450 player nationally, according to 247Sports composite rankings.
Coleman went to Penn State’s Elite Level Showcase Camp on June 27 where he impressed coaches enough that he received an offer from Penn State.
Last year for Central, he recorded 32 tackles and two interceptions as a sophomore, and also participated in the All-American Bowl combine, where he impressed scouts with his speed and hall-hawking skills. Scouts are impressed by how he can play with physicality while not being overly aggressive enough to draw penalties or get burned in coverage. He is adept at knowing the receiver route tree.

If Coleman were to commit, he would be the second player from the 2024 recruiting cycle to commit to Penn State, joining interior offensive lineman Cooper Cousins, who made his commitment in January.
