Ready For Winter

The Wolves had a great year as they finished as state champions in Michigan and one of their top contributors were junior tight end Cole Chewins. He talks about the memorable season, what his winter plans are and the latest with his recruitment

Clarkston High School in Michigan had a great year as the Wolves went on to win a state championship over Detroit Catholic Central with a 32-14 convincing victory. The team showcased tons of talent and one of their best is rising junior tight end Cole Chewins. He talks about the memorable season and what his winter plans are.

"My team won the state championship this year and it was great to bring Clarkston that title," Chewins told GopherDigest. "I'm training and playing basketball now. I plan on training this winter and hopefully being able to get some visits in, but it will depend on my basketball schedule. I am not sure if I have had any coaches stop by the school recently. It's kind of tough because with my class schedule I am usually not able to get pulled out of class. I mostly have been talking with the coaches on the phone and through Facebook right now."

The 6-7, 210-pound tight end prospect has already been receiving plenty of attention and one of those teams interested in him is the Golden Gophers.

"I have been talking with Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan State, Northern Illinois, Auburn, Western Michigan, Purdue, and Bowling Green mostly. Minnesota had invited me to their games this fall and unfortunately I didn't have a chance to make it there due to my schedule. They definitely want me to try and make it back to campus again. I haven't had a chance to talk with Coach Reeves specifically, but I receive mail from them frequently."

Minnesota is headed to the Texas Bowl to face off against Syracuse this bowl season after their great year, which many recruits took notice of especially Chewins.

"I love what Minnesota has done with their program," said Chewins. "I had a chance to see them play against Michigan and I really liked how they use their tight ends. That would be awesome if I got an offer from there because I'd love to have the opportunity to play there!"
