Mullen Defensive End Switches Commit From CSU To CU

New, 5 comments

The Buffaloes have landed a verbal from Timothy Coleman.

Denver Mullen strongside defensive end Timothy Coleman has switched his verbal commitment from Colorado State to Colorado after meeting with Buffaloes head coach Mike MacIntyre. Coleman played offensive tackle last season for Mullen due to a lack of depth at the position before moving back to defensive end this season. One game into his senior year injury he was knocked out with a knee injury and spent the rest of the season rehabbing. He has a lot of upside and I'd much rather see him in Boulder than Fort Collins. If Coleman can recover from his injury, he could end up being a steal.

Welcome aboard, Tim!

Notes: From the Buff Stampede:
"Young for his grade, Coleman just turned 17 years old in October. He played exclusively as an offensive tackle during his junior season due to his team's need. That hurt his recruitment as a defensive end prospect early in the process. And then after recording eight solo tackles and two sacks in Mullen's season-opening victory over Valor Christian last fall, Coleman tore the ACL, MCL and meniscus in his knee."
