Texas continues to look for outside receivers in the 2021 class. It’s been a journey thus far.

UT offered Keon Coleman, the 6-foot-4, 200-pounder from Opelousas (LA) Catholic following his de-commitment from Kansas.

Coleman currently holds 40 offers, including Georgia, Auburn, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Miami.

In 2019, the four-star wideout had 1,143 yards and 22 touchdowns on 35 catches. That's 32.6 ypc. He added seven INTs on defense as well and excels on the hardwood as a Division I level point guard.

He has a lot of responsibilities in 2020, namely getting back to the playoffs.

"We are finding ourselves after losing nine of our defensive starters last year," said Coleman. "There isn't one school on the schedule we won't be ready for."

All the schools are in the "same boat" as others, according to Coleman, but he's got his eyes on a few programs.

"(Texas) is a great school," said Coleman. "They are good at getting the ball to their big receivers."

TCU is also on his mind.

"I've been listening to (Malcolm Kelly, TCU WR coach)," Coleman said. "We're supposed to chop it up again soon."

It's hard to gauge where UT stands early in this pursuit, but he's eager to listen to Texas and likes Andre Coleman. In most years, he'd probably attend LSU, but the Tigers have bigger fish on the line.
