Ready for another Rutgers’ receiver

CONNECTICUT (BASN)-It’s happened again.

Yes at Rutgers.

Another top wide receiver.

Following in the footsteps of Kenny Britt and Mohamed Sanu, both of the NFL.

His name is Brandon Coleman and he should be in the NFL next  year as well.

Pro scouts have him in their top 10 wide receivers.

Coleman, 6-6 from Maryland, will be a key cog  with respect to whether Rutgers finally makes it to a BCS bowl, this time in  their final year before entering the Big Ten.
It almost happened last year, but a late season  loss to Louisville knocked then out of contention.
Coleman already has accounted for 11 receptions   for 124 yards and 2 td’s, in leading Rutgers to a 1-1 record, which could have   been 2-0, but for a 1 point loss to highly regarded Fresno State.
Last season he earned 2nd team all Big east   honors in catching 43 passes for 718 yards and 10 td’s off of the arm of  current QB Gary Nova.
This week Coleman should lead his team to an easy  victory over Eastern Michigan.
But then the tough part of the schedule begins  for the Knights as they play Arkansas at home in late September and Louisville  on the road in October in a nationally televised Thursday night ESPN game.
Who will ever forget the dramatic 2006 Rutgers Thursday night win over  Louisville?
If Coleman plays up to potential, Rutgers could   find itself in a mighty attractive January bowl  game.
