Many players are narrowing down lists as recruiting season begins to heat up in an attempt to become closer to a decision of what program they will spend the next four years at.
Vista Ridge wide receiver Drew Coleman is in no such hurry.
Coleman told PonyStampede.com Monday that he has offers from Army and Dartmouth but is in no rush to make a decision. The 5-foot-10, 165-pound receiver is being recruited by Southern Methodist University in addition to Colorado State and Baylor as well.
Coleman said he does not have a top five list because only two schools have offered him but definitely has SMU high on his wish list. "They have a new staff that I believe is going to turn it around," he said of the program. "I'd like to be a part of that."
The slot receiver appears to be a good fit for the Mustangs as well considering his 4.4 speed which helped him average nearly 20 yards per catch on the season last year.
That fit is not lost on Coleman. "It's the ideal offense to play in," he said. "They use a bunch of wide receivers, and I feel like they're going to put points up, no matter who they play."
The receiver, however, said that his top priority is the education that he will receive. And he believes he can receive a great one at SMU.
Coleman attended the one day camp held by the Mustangs June 15 and did not just like the offense. "The coaching staff was the main thing that stuck out to me," he said. "I like the way they run things."
Yet the receiver is not worried that he will not receive an offer from the Mustangs. "If it doesn't happen, it's not where I was supposed to be," Coleman said.
The senior will, however, continue to show interest until he makes his decision at the end of his final high school season. And by then he might have a bigger list of schools to narrow down.
