4-Star Malachi Coleman Is a Nebraska Cornhusker!!!!!

‘14 Commitment

Malachi Coleman is N!

Coleman is a four-star recruit currently playing at Lincoln East, so he is staying home to be a Cornhusker! He is the #1 rated recruit by 247 in the state of Nebraska, and 67th nationally (58th at Rivals, 2nd nationally!!!! at On3). His set of offers included several Big Ten teams - Minnesota, Iowa, Penn State, Michigan and Wisconsin. In August, he narrowed his final list to Nebraska, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Michigan, Georgia, Oregon, and USC.

Coleman is listed at 6-5, 200 pounds. He plays as a wide receiver on offense, and either linebacker or now considered, “edge rusher”. If Mickey Joseph sticks around, Coleman will be playing as a wide receiver. If Joseph moves on, and Coleman sticks around, it might be Nebraska needs a good edge rusher more than they need another receiver.

Either way, Coleman is a good prize for Nebraska!

Check this out about Coleman’s upbringing:

His father died when he was young. His mother dropped him and his sibling off at a friend’s house and never returned.

“She said she’d be back,” he told the Omaha World-Herald. “I haven’t seen her since that day.”

Adopted by the Coleman family in 2015, he took their last name and has felt wanted ever since.
