Coleman to take in Nike Camp

Coach Gary Patterson and his staff have made a habit out of producing top notch defensive talent since they've taken the reigns of the TCU program. With the ability to evaluate talent on a scale never before seen in these parts of the great state of Texas, Patterson has built a defensive dynasty worthy of the National recognition it has been receiving as of late. As the program has reached new heights, the caliber of prospects that have signed on to fight with General Patterson and his troops has risen dramatically and the future of Horned Frog football looks very bright indeed. With conference championships being added to the trophy case and NFL caliber players roaming the hallowed grounds of Amon G. Carter Stadium these days, the only thing missing is a National Championship and the National respect that will surely follow.

One prospect that fits the description of the type of players that the team is fielding now is none other than Jeremy Coleman of Missouri City, TX and Fort Bend Marshall High School. PurpleMenace.Com caught up with the defensive stalwart this evening to get his thoughts on the recruiting process.

"It's going real good right now. I will be attending the Nike camp at TCU this coming weekend and then I will have my visit with TCU."

Coleman is currently holding strong with four offers, one of those being from TCU. The others are Oklahoma St., Texas Tech and Baylor respectively. When asked what his thoughts were on the TCU program, Coleman had this to say.

"It's a real good school, they win conference championships, and they have a good team and have really good coaches. I was talking to my coach the other day and he was telling me how well TCU's defense is respected around the nation. They are up there; I definitely have them as one of the top schools I'm looking at."

Another factor in some recruits minds when making a decision on where they will attend is the chance to play with people that they are familiar with. Coleman says the fact that Jai Cavness will be suiting up for the Frogs as a true freshman this fall is a plus for the Horned Frogs.

"Yes Sir, those types of things are a bonus, I've known Jai for a long time. We played together growing up in little league. Well, not together, but against each other, but it would be really cool to get to play together again."

While Coleman will surely have other suitors, he seems to be a perfect match for Coach Gary Patterson's relentless, swarming defense. One thing is for sure, whoever lands this recruit's talents will be getting a tenacious, versatile athlete whose motor never stops. Coleman says that he will most likely make a decision before his senior year.
