One of the best shooters and scorers in Ohio standing at 5'11" and 160 pounds, Cole Krizancic became the only junior in Ohio to be named to the 1st team Division I (big school) all–state team. With his dad as his high school coach at Mentor H.S. in Ohio, this fundamental 2011 combo guard has earned himself a NCAA offer.

Krizancic can play either guard spot. Krizancic said, "I am a 1-2 guard. I usually play both. I am mostly a shooter, but I can drive too. I like to drive and dish off to the post or kick out to a three point shot. In high school we shoot a lot of threes so that is what I am used to."

Krizancic added about his style:

"I resemble Stephon Curry. I am shooter. I am around his size. I try to get as many shots I can. I go off screens. I work all around the court to get my shot if possible."

Krizancic is also strong in classroom earning a 3.4 GPA.

Krizancic has earned offers from Navy and Walsh (NCAA Division II). He also has interest from Miami-OH, Akron, Toledo, Bucknell, plus other Patriot League and small schools in Ohio.

Krizancic has visited Miami and Navy.

As a junior this past season, Krizancic averaged 27.1 points per game which was the highest scoring average in the state at the end of the regular season.

Krizancic helped Mentor to a 23-4 record. Mentor reached the Division I state semifinals before falling 66-59 in overtime to Cincinnati Moeller.

Although Mentor lost its starting point guard, the school has a chance to do damage again this season. Krizancic said, "We have a lot of kids coming back. So we should be pretty good."
