Christian Coleman (2011-DL) Update

Last night I interviewed Christian Coleman who plays for Milan High School in Tennessee. Milan is the same school Avery Williamson (2010 signee) attends. Avery recently told me he felt Christian "might" come to UK.

Currently Christian has two scholarship offers. Both from Kentucky and Memphis, while other schools are getting involved. He is also receiving interest from Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Duke and Arkansas State. Christian told me he would like to play in the SEC.

Based on our conversation, Christian has done a lot of research on UK because he wants to major in Physical Therapy. He told me has been "considering" a commitment to UK, but wants to research some other schools before making a final decision. He did tell me he won't wait until signing day and will likely make a decision during his senior season.

He did attend Junior Day at UK and Randy Sanders is handling his recruitment. This summer he plans on attending four or five camps. His plan includes camps at Kentucky, Tennessee and Memphis.

Christian is currently 6'3" and 255lbs and runs a 4.9 forty-yard dash. He has already taken the ACT twice and should not have any qualifying issues. I asked Christian if he had any personal goals for his senior season and he said, "win a state championship." Christian is very personable and will make a great addition to any program.

  1. A very nice video you have of him below, I like the fact that it looks like he doesn't give up on a play.
