Milan grid standout
says UK is his pick

Milan defensive lineman Christian Coleman has given a verbal commitment to the University of Kentucky.
Coleman, a rising senior, will join former Bulldog teammate Avery Williamson at UK after Williamson signed with the Wildcats at the conclusion of his stellar prep career.
An all-state linebacker at Milan last season, Williamson is expected to vie for playing time in his freshman campaign this fall in Lexington.
Coleman reportedly also had scholarship offers from Duke, Memphis and Middle Tennessee State. His commitment is non-binding until the official nation signing period in February.
A 6-3, 255-pounder, Coleman has been a starter on the last two Bulldog teams that finished as state runnerup to Alcoa. He was hampered last season by an ankle injury as a junior.
