Bio: 
Rotational back who rushed 89 times for 407 yards and four touchdowns in 2017. Carried 114 times for 852 yards and seven TDs and set a school record with 7.5 yards per carry as a junior. Rushed for 176 yards on 33 carries in 2015. Led the team with 138 rushes as a redshirt freshman and tallied 565 rushing yards and one score.
Pos: 
Strong downhill ball carrier who does the little things well. Runs with an aggressive style, gets a lot of momentum going and is tough to bring down. Displays outstanding vision as a blocker and willingly gets out in front and removes defenders from the action. Solid pass catcher with the ability to adjust to errant throws and make receptions in stride.
Neg: 
Not a creative ball carrier who makes defenders miss or improvises. Gets in trouble when he tries to run east and west. Cannot avoid piles and defenders. Lacks burst.
Analysis: 
Coleman is a bit one-dimensional and is sort of a ‘tweener who lacks the size to be a true power runner and the quickness of a more creative ball carrier, but he gets the most from his ability. His short-yardage potential, pass-catching skill and willingness as a blocker will make it hard to cut Coleman from the final roster.
