Fla. CB Talks Irish Offer

Miramar (Fla.) High class of 2015 cornerback Tyrek Cole was offered by Notre Dame, and he spoke about how it happened, and his knowledge of the Irish.

Miramar (Fla.) High class of 2015 cornerback Tyrek Cole doesn't know much about Notre Dame, but he does know someone he can ask from some deep insight.

And after the Irish offered the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Cole on Wednesday, he may just need to make a call to Irish 2014 receiver commit Corey Holmes of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas High.

"It came out of nowhere," Cole said of the offer. "The defensive backs coach (Tony Alford) DM'd (direct messaged) me on Twitter to say, ‘What's up?,' and he asked me to call him. When I called him, he had a long talk with me and then he offered."

Cole is certainly a hot commodity in the 2015 class as his impressive offer list already stretches across the country. Miami, Florida and Florida State each extended offers, as has Clemson, South Carolina, UCLA, West Virginia and Washington State.

And what Cole hears from plenty of other schools, he was told again by Alford.

"He said he liked my experience, my play-making abilities, and I'm a solid corner," Cole said. "That's basically it. That's what he was saying."

However, Cole said he knows very little about the Irish.

"The always have a solid team every year, no matter what," Cole said. "The coach was telling me they are one of the best institutions in the United State when it comes to academics."

Previously, Cole said he liked the Big Three in-state schools as well as Clemson and South Carolina, but his fall schedule with likely keep him into the Sunshine State for game days.

"I'll go to all the Miami home games and probably some of the Gators home games," he said. "But I'm open to everybody."
