Injured in the first game of the season 2013 Denver Mullen DE Timothy Coleman is still gaining DI attention

Friday night was bittersweet for lineman Timothy Coleman. Coleman’s Mullen Mustangs defeated conference rival and fellow 5A power Columbine as he watched from the sidelines. In game one of the season Coleman, a 2013 prospect who has won All-Conference honors on the offensive line as a junior but was being recruited as a defensive lineman, did major damage to his knee in an opening game loss to Los Osos, California High School.

Despite the season ending injury Coleman reports that colleges are still showing interest in his services. Currently, Coleman holds an offer from Northern Colorado and is getting significant attention from Colorado State, TCU, New Mexico and recently Kentucky.

Coleman will take a trip to Colorado State and then in December a visit to TCU. Coleman says,” Colorado State wants to see how his surgery goes and then offer in December.” Colleges are looking at Coleman to play defensive end or a hybrid DE/LB position. This past offseason Coleman saw his stock rise with a very strong camp at TCU. Standing 6-3 and weighing 250, Coleman has the ability to play multiple spots on the defensive line and shows the ability to drop into coverage. Further, his time as an offensive lineman shows he is ready for the rigors of college interior line play.
