5-Star Texas A&M Commit Plans to Take Penn State OV

A five-star Texas A&M WR commit is planning on taking an official visit to Penn State.

Chad Simmons of On3Sports reported Friday morning that the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder from Central Phenix High School in Phenix City, Alabama, is “still locked in with the Aggies,” but plans on taking OVs to Colorado and Penn State and will “get back to Auburn soon.”

Coleman is also considering taking OVs to Florida and Florida State.

247Sports’ composite rankings have Coleman as the No. 1 player in Alabama, the No. 3 receiver in the country and the No. 10 overall player from his class.

He’s been committed to Texas A&M since the Fourth of July.

Penn State offered Coleman two days after Christmas. In addition to the school he’s committed to and the schools he either plans on visiting or is thinking of visiting, Coleman has offers from schools such as Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Georgia,  Georgia Tech, Kentucky, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi State, Northwestern, Ole Miss, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

247Sports’ national recruiting analyst Cooper Petagna wrote a player evaluation for Coleman in March. The player comparison Petagna gave Coleman was George Pickens of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He wrote that Coleman is “verified at 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds plus, possesses an athletic frame with growth potential to add an additional fifteen to twenty pounds to his frame on Saturdays.”

“Possesses outstanding verified athletic ability at the  receiver position,” Petagna wrote.

Penn State currently has three receivers committed to its ‘24 Class: Four-star Josiah Brown (Malverne, New York), Three-stars Tyseer Denmark (Philadelphia) and Peter Gonzalez (Pittsburgh).

Coleman would be quite an addition.
