B.J. Coleman To UTC ?

Recommended Posts

B.J. Coleman To Be A Moc?

 

Former TSSAA Division II AA Mr. Football Back of the Year B.J. Coleman is scheduled to announce at a Thursday afternoon press conference where is will play football this fall.

 

An unnamed source stated that Coleman, a redshirt freshman at Tennessee, is leaning heavily to UT-Chattanooga as his college choice for this fall and will make the announcement at the 2:30 p.m. conference at the McCallie School dining hall, which is a couple of football fields from Spears Stadium where he starred on Friday nights for the Blue Tornado.

 

The two-time all-state quarterback in 2005 and 2006 saw limited playing time at quarterback for the Vols this past fall. At McCallie, Coleman led the Blue Tornado to a 2006 Division II AA state runner-up finish.

 

If Coleman signs with the Mocs, he will be playing in familiar surroundings at Finley Stadium (the Mocs home field) where he played several games there as a prep signal caller for the Blue Tornado.

 

He committed to the Vols in June 2006, the summer prior to his senior year at McCallie.

This was expected when he decided to leave because he would have to set out a year if he went to another D1 school.

Despite the football team's academic shortcomings under the previous coaching staff, the school itself has a very good academic repuation. Look at US News & World Report and see. Rated a top tier university.

 

With the new coaching staff and a 6-5, 215 QB - serious prospects who don't get SEC offers should take a long look at UTC. Their football program will be a huge comeback story in the next few years. Write it down.

Rumor on the street in Knoxville is................he didn't want to compete/work for the job.

In his mind it was his and his alone.

 

Probably should leave with that attitude.

That won't cut it in THE SEC.

 

Thank you for the scholarship.

GO VOLS!!

Obviously, I'm biased on this topic. But I say welcome home BJ, I look forward to watching the quad of Blue put on a show this coming fall! It is wonderful to get to say go big blue on Saturdays!
