Also announced saturday…Antonio’s nephew Terrance Coleman re-committed to AU! TC is rated the #49 defensive tackle in the country. As a senior, he tallied 96 tackles, 36 solos, 14 tackles-for-loss and 10 sacks.

There are several reasons the Colemans’ news is big:

- skill: we get back an All-SEC Defensive End, 2 time sack leader and leadership desperately needed on the D-Line and on the whole defensive side of the ball, that i frankly didn’t think we’d get back

- depth: was about to be a major issue…now we have some breathing room with not only a Sr. leader, but also a new body with a bunch of potential to fill in at either DE or DT.

- recruiting: getting TC back on board can only help keep our pipeline open at Williamson, and with a guy like Barry James coming up next season, having TC and LaVoyd James could loom large.

- momentum: the ball is rolling for AU now with excellent coaching additions, Coleman coming back and regaining a commitment. recruiting thrives on momentum and it’s starting to pick up steam for the good guys.
