Buffalo dips into NYC for another pledge

Running back/safety prospect James Coleman (Middle Village, N.Y./Christ the King) has become the fifth 2013 commitment for Buffalo, according to multiple sources.

“I felt like Buffalo committed to me first,” Coleman told the New York Daily Post. “I can succeed there, do big things. They weren’t scared to come after me. Right now my mind is set on Buffalo. It's a good fit for me."

The Post reports that Coleman has connected with another Buffalo verbal, Brooklyn Tech wide receiver Kyvaune Brammer.

Coleman, 6-foot, 195-pounds, accounted for 2,108 yards of total offense and 20 touchdowns as a junior and was a first team All-Queens selection.
