    2011: Coleman, who appears healthy now after being bothered by injuries earlier in his USC career, will battle to get into the playing rotation at offensive tackle as a senior in 2011.

    2010: Coleman, who has been bothered by injuries throughout his USC career, will look to make a contribution on the offensive line as a junior in 2010. He was moved back to offensive tackle, his position when he first came to USC, from offensive guard prior to 2010 spring practice. He missed part of 2010 spring drills with an ankle injury.

    2009: Coleman did not see any action in 2009 as a reserve offensive guard as a sophomore while bothered by a lingering ankle injury. He was limited in 2009 spring practice while recuperating from an ankle injury.

    2008: After seeing brief action in the opener at Virginia as a reserve offensive guard, Coleman sprained his ankle prior to the Ohio State game and was sidelined for the rest of his 2008 redshirt freshman season. He also was available to play tackle.

    2007: Coleman, who graduated a semester early from high school and enrolled at USC in the spring of 2007, redshirted as an offensive tackle as a first-year freshman in 2007. He had post-spring surgery on his shoulder, which limited him in 2007.

    HIGH SCHOOL: His 2006 honors included Super Prep All-American, Prep Star All-American, Prep Star 100, Rivals.com 100, Super Prep All-Farwest, Prep Star All-West, Scout.com All-West, Long Beach Press-Telegram Best in the West first team, Orange County Register Fab 15 first team, Tacoma News-Tribune Western 100, Orange County Register All-Orange County first team and All-Sunset League Offensive Line MVP as a senior offensive lineman at Edison High in Huntington Beach (Calif.). He missed the end of the 2006 season after breaking his ankle. Edison was the CIF Pac-5 Division runnerup.

    As a junior in 2005, he made the All-Sunset League second team. He only played 2 years of football at Edison. Current Trojan Will Andrew also prepped at Edison.

    PERSONAL: He's an American studies and ethnicity major at USC. He grew up on the Tongan island of Vavau and played rugby as a youth. He enjoys art and some of his sculpture pieces were displayed at the 2008 and 2009 "Artletics" on-campus exhibits that featured the works of USC student-athletes.
