American Nabs Kole

Jarrod Kole, a 6-10, 220 pounder from Mantua, Ohio, signed with American University on Wednesday. He's American's only signee of the year thus far.

Kole played quarterback this past season for his high school football team. His brother is a football player at Yale and his parents were athletes as well. Kole's father was a football player at NC State and his mother was an Olympic swimmer who also attended NC State.

Last year, Kole's basketball was limited due to an ankle injury.
