|Tarpon Springs (FL) East Lake offensive guard Mason Cole|
I wrote a scouting report on Cole a few weeks ago, so there's no reason to re-invent the wheel. Since then he has been ranked the #107 overall recruit by Rivals.
Since you can see my thoughts on Cole in the link above, there's not much more to say. I really like Cole and think he should be a quality starter down the road. He may have to wait a few years because of the talent ahead of him, though. In addition to the value of his commitment, he also attends school with 2014 wide receiver offeree Artavis Scott and 2015 wide receiver offeree George Campbell. Cole and Scott have talked about being a "package deal," so this would seem to help Michigan with wide receiver recruiting.
Cole represents the first time Brady Hoke has dipped into Florida for a commitment, and he's the first Floridian to choose Michigan since Tony Posada (who committed to Rich Rodriguez in the class of 2011 but quit football almost immediately). Cole is the fourth member of the 2014 class.
