Coleman still looking at Tide

Olive Branch (MS) offensive tackle Shon Coleman has stayed relatively quiet since committing to the Auburn Tigers early in the year but now with his senior season well underway, the 6-foot-7, 285-pound lineman may be re-examining his recruiting status.

"At this point, I'd say I'm definitely still looking around. It's nothing against Auburn. I'm still really interested in them but I feel like I need to take a better look at some of the other schools that offered me. Right now pretty much everyone that offered me is still in it. I'm still hearing a lot from Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Tennessee and Alabama is sending me letters pretty regularly. Those are all schools I want to learn a little more about."

Coleman also holds offers from Florida International, Oklahoma State and Southern Miss and said he isn't willing to rule out any of the schools that have offered him a scholarship at this point.

"Once the season is over, I will probably start taking official visits and really taking a harder look at these schools and which one might be right for me. Everything is just kind of up in the air for me right now with recruiting. I think I just need some time to look at all my options and figure out what I really want in a college."

In the meantime, Coleman continues to lead his Olive Branch teammates to an impressive season. Rated as the nation's No. 31 offensive tackle prospect, Coleman has completely dominated almost every player he has faced off with at the line of scrimmage this season.

"The season is going pretty good so far. We're 5-2 and we've played a lot of really good teams. We're a pretty young group but we've really come together in the first few weeks and we're starting to look like a pretty strong team. As far as me personally, I've felt really good about my performance. I'm dominating the guys across from me and doing my best to just put people on their backs."

Coleman is rated the No. 11 overall prospect in the state of Mississippi.
