Notre Dame Football Recruiting

2019 Iowa CB Gets Look At ND, ND Gets Look At Him

June 28, 2017

Anthony Coleman had a chance to work out in front of the Notre Dame coaches at Irish Invasion earlier this month and the 2019 Iowa cornerback also had an opportunity to get a closer look at the school and program in South Bend.

“I loved it,” the 5-foot-9, 165-pounder said. “It’s just beautiful and it just felt great.”

The Johnston, Iowa native liked the blend of education and football at Notre Dame.

“The academic side along with their athletic side,” he said.

He also felt he performed well during the camp setting and made sure to listen what Irish defensive backs coach Todd Lyght was telling the participants.

“I learned a lot and used my athletic ability to put on a pretty good performance,” he said.

“Just different techniques that Coach Lyght taught us and being able to put those things out, especially against the receivers in one-on-ones.”

Apparently, it worked as he received positive feedback from the coaches.

“They said I did really well,” Coleman said.

Coleman, who has been clocked at sub-4.4 in the 40-yard dash, really enjoyed the chance to work with Lyght on the field.

“I loved it,” he said. “He’s a great coach. He’s got a lot of experience. He’s very trustworthy and he gave great tips.”

Coleman is still waiting on his first offer, but has received interest from several Big Ten teams.

“Mainly, Iowa, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota, of course Notre Dame, a little bit from Nebraska and Purdue a little,” he said.

He’s hoping to continue building a relationship with the Irish.

“I’d like to keep in contact with the coaches and everything, try to get back for a game just to see what the atmosphere is like and then go from there.”
