Rutgers junior wide receiver Brandon Coleman headed to the NFL
Rutgers wide receiver Brandon Coleman will forego his final season of eligibility and enter the 2014 NFL Draft.
The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Coleman had his best season with the Scarlet Knights as a sophomore in 2011. That season he made 43 catches for 718 yards and 10 touchdowns, all single-season highs.
Though he entered 2013 as a pre-season Biletnikoff Award Preseason watch list member, Coleman wasn’t quite able to equal his numbers from the previous season, totaling 32 receptions for 473 and three touchdowns.
For his career, Coleman has 92 receptions for 1,743 yards. His 19 receiving touchdowns are second on the school’s all-time list.
Coleman, from Bishop McNamara in Accokeek, Md., was a four-star recruit in Rutgers’ 2010 recruit class.
He will play his final collegiate game in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl game against Notre Dame on Dec. 28.
