Cole Is A Top 2015 Target

One of the more impressive underclassmen at the recent New Level Athletics 7on7 held in Youngstown was Saginaw (MI) Heritage wide receiver Brian Cole. The sophomore is coming off a fine season, and showed off his skill set at wideout.

Brian Cole stood out as a player to watch for the class of 2015 at the recent New Level Athletics 7on7 in Youngstown. The sophomore wide receiver used his size and length to make plays in the passing game.

Cole, 6-foot-2, 190-pounds, is coming off a fine season at Heritage, where he performed well as a starting wide receiver.

"My sophomore season went great for me, but I wish we would have won more games," Cole stated. "I made the most of my opportunities to make plays, and had a solid year for my team. I started all year on the varsity, and they actually moved me up there as a freshman."

"My strength is my ability to go up and get the ball at its highest point," he added. "I try to use my size to go over people, and my jumping ability. I'm working on running better routes, and being more precise in my cuts."

Although still only a sophomore in high school, college recruiters have already discovered this impressive athlete, and Cole holds offers from the two in-state powers.

"I do have offers from Michigan State and Michigan, and I like both schools a lot," he admitted. "I don't really know a lot about them, but the coaches seem great and I'm thrilled to have those offers. I'm still wide open as far as college recruiting goes, and I'm just looking to get noticed."

"I never really watched a lot of college football growing up, and I would rather play the game than watch it on television," Cole said. "I've visited both schools for games, and loved it at both places, but I wouldn't favor one over the other at all."

Michigan and Michigan State aren't the only schools aware of Cole's talents, and he is hearing from a few other top programs.

"I've heard from Ohio State and Tennessee so far," he explained. "Ohio State is a school I'm going to visit real soon, and I don't really know much about them at all. The same with Tennessee, and I want to learn more about both of them."

"I want to hear from schools from all over the country, and distance from home won't matter to me at all," he continued. "I just want to get as many offers as possible, and see what options I will have. I do real well in the classroom, and I'm hoping that will help me get interest from the best schools."
