That combination has recruiters queuing up to dial the Cole family residence.
"I've been getting calls from U-Dub, Cal-Berkeley, USC, ASU, WSU, Oregon, and Nebraska," said Cole.
"Washington and Oregon are making a strong pull right now. So is Arizona State. I have received a lot of mail from them."
Coach Neuheisel phoned Ryan. "He tells me he wants to see me in Purple and Gold," said Cole, who will attend today's Michigan game.
One of the most appealing virtues to this outstanding young man is his humility. "I'm just going out and playing to the best of my abilities. If touchdowns and yards come, that's great. But that's secondary to doing your best," said Cole.
"I've had the chance to talk to Jimmy Newell. He told me to just relax, go out and have fun, and not to worry too much about recruiting so I can focus on the games I'm playing in."
Cole has a lot of options available to him but he appears to be leaning toward staying in the league he's most familiar with. "I'm leaning toward the Pac-10 schools. I have not broken it down any further than that yet."
Of being named to the Seattle Times Pre-Season all-State squad, Cole replied very calmly, "It's a great feeling."
