Star Jackson… Meet T Coleman – Hope Your Offensive Line Hold’s For Your Sake!  – Link to Highlight…. This kid is $$$$$!!

Auburn picked up its first commitment of the 2009 class Sunday when one of the state’s top prospects gave his pledge to the Tigers.

Mobile (Ala.) Williamson defensive lineman Terrence Coleman, 6-foot-1, 245-pounds, committed to Auburn following the Tigers’ first Junior Day of the 2008-09 recruiting season.

Coleman picked up early offers from Auburn and Alabama before choosing the Tigers.

“I committed to Auburn,” said Coleman. “It feels good, real good. I have been up there a lot of times and seen the campus. I feel comfortable there. I’ve also met all of the coaches. They’re good coaches and I like them.”

Coleman’s uncle, Antonio Coleman, is the starter at defensive end for Auburn heading into spring. Terrence said Antonio being at Auburn wasn’t the deciding factor, but it did play a big role in him choosing the Tigers.

“My mom and dad are deceased and he has helped me out since then, been like a big brother to me,” said Terrence. “He’s made sure I did the right things. I’ve watched him play at Auburn and it just feels good to know I’ll be there with him.”

Coleman is a beast along the defensive front for Williamson.

Terrence said his uncle has always been quick to give him pointers not only off the field, but on it as well.

“He comes home and we work on a lot of things, my quick-step, the fundamentals and all of that,” said Terrence. “He shows me a lot of stuff he’s learned at Auburn.”

As a junior, Terrence tallied 116 tackles and nine sacks. He was named first-team All-Region and 5A honorable mention All-State. In addition to Auburn and Alabama, Terrence is also getting serious interest from LSU, Mississippi State and Nebraska. Although solid to the Tigers, he hasn’t completely ruled out taking other visits in the fall.

“I’m committed to Auburn,” he said. “I may still take some visits, but I feel good about Auburn.”

Last week during the SPARQ Football combine in Mobile, Terrence had the fourth-highest overall SPARQ Rating after clocking an electronically-timed 4.89-second 40-yard dash, a 4.68-second 20-yard shuttle, and a 31.2-inch vertical leap. The SPARQ Rating system is “designed to measure sport-specific athleticism”, according to

Terrence, who just turned 16 in December, is the second 2009 prospect in the state to make a commitment. Foley DL D.J. Fluker is committed to Alabama.
