Colin Coates will be in the 704 for an official visit this weekend. He’s a 6’2, 305lbs DT that holds quite a few G5 offers: CLT, Temple, Marshall, WKU, Liberty, UCONN, Buffalo, Bowling Green, JMU, Kent State, Miami (OH), ODU, Toldeo and Townson. There are no P5 offers yet, but he has taken an unofficial to VT (with their new staff), so that’s something to keep an eye on.
Back in March, Coates was named MVP for Defensive Lineman group at the Rising Stars Midnight Madness event, which featured prospects from multiple states. Before that he also performed at a high-level at the 2022 National Underclassmen Combine, and was named to 247Sports’ All-Combine Team in January.
