Chewins bulking up, setting up visits

Clarkston (Mich.) junior tight end adding weight in the offseason and taking junior day visits to a variety of schools. He talks where he is hearing from and some visit plans in the near future.

It didn't take long for Cole Chewins to kick into offseason for football.

The Clarkston junior tight end is busy with basketball season, but also focused on working to improve his game – and bulking up.

"Right now, I'm up to eating 7,500 calories a day," he said. "My mom got sick of me over break because I was at home all the time and kept asking for more food. I was cleaning us out."

As a result, he has gained more than 15 pounds since football season concluded for the Wolves with a Division 1 state title.

He also is working on running better routes and all other aspects of the position as he prepares for the upcoming 7 on 7 season.

While keeping busy with basketball and football offseason, Chewins is getting ready for some junior day visits in the coming weeks.

He started with Toledo on Sunday and is looking to get to a couple of Big Ten schools soon.

"I'm getting really excited," he said. "Michigan State said come back down whenever. I talked with Curtis Blackwell and he said try and get down to a basketball game sometime.

"Indiana wants me to come down sometime for a basketball game or in the spring for a practice. I'm just trying to set everything up right now."

As the contact period has opened back up, the 6-foot-7, 221-pound tight end also has been getting more mail and contact from colleges. He said mail has started coming from Auburn and Nebraska.

"In-season, I was talking a lot with Minnesota and Michigan a little bit here and there," he said.

He also is hearing from plenty of MAC schools.

"Western Michigan a lot, almost every week, Central Michigan, Bowling Green, then the coaches from Bowling Green moved to Wake Forest so now I'm talking to Wake Forest," he said. "I've been talking with NIU a lot, but their tight ends coach just left so I haven't found out if they got a new one yet. I will get in touch with them."
