Two lead for PA athlete

Hermitage (Pa.) Hickory all-purpose back DeShawn Coleman has an offer from West Virginia and the Mountaineers are in a good spot with him.

In fact, West Virginia is one of two leaders for the 6-foot, 170-pound athlete.

"My favorites are West Virginia and Ohio State. Those are my top two right now," Coleman said this weekend.

"I like their football programs and the academics. That's why they're up there."

Coleman said he hasn't spoken with the coaches at Ohio State but he plans on doing that soon. He will be visiting Columbus two weeks from now and that will be his first opportunity to interact with the Buckeye coaches.

West Virginia offered the Keystone State junior a couple of weeks ago.

He has already taken two trips to WVU.

"I'm liking it a lot. It's nice," he said of the school.

Coleman has also visited Penn State and said he's trying to set up a trip to Miami.

Several schools have told Coleman he has what it takes to play receiver in college but his position is still somewhat up in the air. Right now he seems intent on waiting things out and finding out what all of his offers will be before he starts to narrow things down.

Coleman also said Penn State's previous staff had offered him but he doesn't know where he stands with the Nittany Lions now.
