Cole Loftin Impresses at Combine

SAN ANTONIO -- Aledo High School in Texas produces Division I talent year after year. The premier prospect from Aledo's junior class is Cole Loftin. He spent the majority of his junior season at quarterback but also played some wide receiver. He talked recruiting at the U.S. Army National Combine.

"I haven't talked one-on-one with a bunch of coaches about college, but I have been getting a lot of mail from the Texas' schools and then Iowa, Kansas and Georgia Tech every couple of days," Cole Loftin said.

Loftin mentioned one school in particular that is high on his list. He wants to play in an offensive system that would allow him to make plays on the football field

"I haven't really put it down to a couple of schools, but I really like Texas. I would really like an offense that would get me the ball a lot and play receiver, maybe slot a receiver," Loftin said.

Loftin got to see first hand what college football is like inside the state of Texas when he watched the Texas Longhorns take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders in Lubbock.

"I went to Tech and watched them play Texas in Lubbock," Loftin said. "It was really good. It was real nice."

The 6-foot-0, 180-pound Loftin spent the majority of the high school football season at quarterback but filled up almost every category on the stat sheet throughout the year.

"Well receiving, I didn't get to play receiver a lot because I played quarterback most of the time. I was predominantly a running quarterback. I rushed for close to 2,000 yards and passed for a good 800 probably. I received for about 400, but I didn't get many catches," Loftin said.
