Cats add Texas safety/linebacker

The Arizona football program has not fared well when it has come to televised commitments, but that was not the case as Dayven Coleman publically announced his commitment to the Wildcats on a local Texas television broadcast.

“For the next three to four years I will be taking my talents to Arizona,” Coleman said on Fox 4 television in Dallas/Ft. Worth..

Coleman is a 6-2, 200-pound safety/linebacker from Mesquite, Tex/West Mesquite. He is a 247Composite 3-star prospect and is rated as the No. 58 safety and No. 787 player overall in the 2018 recruiting class.

As a senior Coleman had 71 tackles, 8 for loss, a pick and three pass break-ups. He chose the Wildcats over Illinois, Utah, and Kansas State.

Coleman has actually been committed to Arizona for several months. He visited in November and made his silent verbal pledge at that time. Previously he had been committed to UCLA, but backed off that pledge after the coaching change. Arizona did not have that same problem, as Coleman was familiar with Kevin Sumlin from his time at Texas A&M.

Coleman is expected to sign with Arizona on Wednesday.
