2003 Media Guide: Robert “R.J.” Coleman heads into fall as one of the backups for veteran Bryce Bishop at right guard … promising young player who is coming off a good spring … came to Ohio State as a highly touted tight end, but the coaches felt he was better suited to an inside position and moved him to guard following winter conditioning … is a fine athlete with excellent size and strength and has demonstrated in a short period of time that he can be an effective player on the inside … should get his first taste of playing time this year … hopes to establish himself as the Buckeyes’ third guard … coaches like his tenacity.

2002: Redshirted and did not see any game action.

High School: Did not start playing organized football until his junior year, but wasted precious little time developing into one of the top tight end prospects in America … won all-state honors as a senior and was ranked by SuperPrep as the top prospect in the state of West Virginia … that publication also rated him as the fourth best tight end prospect in the country … ranked as the sixth best tight end by Rivals.com … crushing blocker, who averaged 28 yards per catch as a junior, with five of those going for touchdowns … also played defensive end and tackle and logged 125 tackles and nine sacks … state shot put champion as a junior … also plays basketball … parents are Christopher Coleman and Kathy Harris … high school coach – Richard Iaquinta … born Dec. 14, 1983.
