Evaluation Process Still Ongoing for Cole

Saginaw (Mich.) Heritage Brian Cole is still very high on Michigan, but he isn’t yet certain that it will be his collegiate destination.

Michigan’s recruiting class is in limbo these days. The uncertain future of the coaching staff has brought the progress of the 2015 effort to a halt, and brought the firmness of many of the commitments into question.  That is certainly true of one of the Wolverines’ highest rated pledges, Saginaw Heritage wide receiver Brian Cole.  While the four-star pass catcher has given the impression that it will be difficult to convince him to break his pledge to the Maize & Blue, it is far from impossible.

"As his daddy I’m telling you we’re still evaluating everything.  We’re still committed taking some visits. We’re looking around, but we’re still committed to Michigan."

Cole, his father and his uncle are in Lincoln, Nebraska this weekend to check out the Cornhuskers.  He has already been the Wisconsin and Purdue, and could still schedule a visit to Ohio State.   There has also been discussion about an official visit to Michigan the second weekend in December.

“It’s not finalized yet,” Mr. Cole said. “It is something that has been talked about.”

Another topic that has been talked about is the timeline for finalizing the younger Cole’s collegiate plans.  Because he will be an early enrollee the end of November had previously been set as a deadline. Now it appears the decision will take a little longer.

“I guess that (decision date) has moved a little bit,” Mr. Cole said.  “We’re still looking.  We’re still checking things out.”
