Chippewas Insider has learned that quarterback Audie Cole (6-5, 220) of Monroe (Mich.) High School verbally committed to Central Michigan during a visit to campus for the WMU game Friday night.
A player the Chippewas have targeted since the summer, Cole's size, speed and toughness (he's also a boxer) could allow him to play a number of different positions for CMU, including defensive end or tight end, in addition to quarterback.
Cole helped lead Monroe High School to a 6-4 overall record this season and a berth in the state playoffs.
He also reported an offer from Eastern Michigan and heavy recruiting interest from a host of other Mid-American Conference and Big Ten schools.
Cole becomes the seventh Michigan prep player and tenth verbal commitment overall in CMU's 2007 recruiting class.
