Coleman blown away at Cincinnati

Three-star Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway inside linebacker Jaylen Coleman was listing Pitt as his favorite school until very recently.

All of that has changed since a visit to Cincinnati.

"I don't know," Coleman tried to explain. "It's not that Pitt dropped me. I've just dropped them a little bit. I like Pitt but I'm not sure I want to be so close to home. I kind of want to get out and see something new."

The 6-foot-1, 220-pound prospect was blown away by what he saw at Cincinnati, and that's one reason his leader board looks different.

"Cincinnati's campus was crazy. I loved everything about it. First of all their academics are off the charts. Then I saw they had a Subway on campus," he laughed.

"Cincinnati is number one on my list right now."

Coleman will be visiting Maryland on Friday and might get out to some other schools after that.

He's planning to take official visits to Cincinnati and Wisconsin, though those dates aren't on the calendar yet.
