FWIW, here's my scouting report on Cole:
Magnus, I am dissapointed in you.
From past experience, several people will ask throughout the thread, so at least it won't get lost in the shuffle here.
Am I the only one that keeps reading Tarpon Springs, FL as Tampon Springs, FL? I am fully aware I am four years old.
You are an advanced 4 year old. I didn't know what tampons were when I was 4.
What about him playing right tackle I know he doesn't have great arm length. He seems like he could play four spots on the line other than LT. although Shane being a south paw....
I don't think he has the size to play tackle unless he hits a growth spurt. I think he'll end up at guard. For several years, Michigan offensive tackles have all been 6'6" to 6'8". Plus I think one of Cole's strengths is his ability to pull, which is a skill used less often at tackle.
now we keep our fingers crossed for Artavis Scott and George Campbell.
I love it. Scott and Campbell, your commitments are welcome at any moment also
It's SO early for him yet. At least let the kid finish his Sophomore year of High School!
Absolutely amazing pick up....
Offers from the entire nation....Looks versatile enough to play any position on the line, and he comes from a great program....
For people concerned about how 'mid-west centric' our recruiting was last year, we currently have commits from Virginia, Florida, Utah, and Ohio....
Um... Ohio? It may be the worst state ever, but it's relatively midwestern.
Coles' commitment after Montgomery left just proves that Montgomery wasn't really doing all that much and we're better off cutting the dead weight from the program
Especially since Montgomery was the one who was involved in bringing in Ferns, Speight and Mone. You never like it when a guy is bringing in quality players like that. He was also pretty involved with quite a few other guys on the board so its a great thing he's gone. I would definitely not call him "dead weight". He did a pretty good job while at Michigan.
Yeah I'm sure that's why Oklahoma was willing to give him a $70k raise. Actually nevermind - I'll just flat out call you an idiot. Idiot.
I am an anarchist and all that but it seems like the board has taken a step backward the last two months with more name calling and too many people talking just to hear themselves speak.
Am I right? Or is it just me?
70K? Dave Brandon needs to break out his wallet. At Auburn, that's the going rate for one 3-star tight end or two long-snappers.
Dang Herm, how'd you win that trip to Bolivia? You were once so well liked.
I think sarcasm.
PROTIP: If people can't tell it's sarcasm, it's probably not very good sarcasm
Well then, your sarcasm needs work... Commence loop.
Great to get a great player from Florida. He alone is a huge get for Michigan. The fact that he is tight with other studs from East Lake could be HUGE!
This is awesome. Are there any thoughts on what effect, if any, Artavis Scott will have on Drake Harris?
Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Scott needs to jump on board first. If that happens I don't think it would affect Harris too much.
Fair. I am jumping to conclusions. However, they definitely said they were a package deal on numerous occasions. That's definitely still up in the air, but I was reacting to that.
Scott and Harris are very different players. Just look at their measurables. They would compliment each other quite nicely.
edit: Should do a little extra scrolling before responding. Way late.
so probably not at all. Scott's size says more slot receiver to me, whereas Harris is pure wideout. I could be wrong on that assessment however.
Cue the dancing Kates and welcome aboard Mason!
though I'm a Ruination guy
We still have 3 commits in February. Just keep bringing top talent every few weeks and football season will be here before we know it.
Very good pickup. After I heard Mason's quote last night I figured Michigan was the place for him. Good thing to hear when you're just getting off work.
Now grab your buddies, Artavis and George!
This is good! Welcome to michigan!
Artavis...where you at, bro? Great news for Michigan!
but I thought Urban got every recruit from Florida?
Yes i have joined the #WolverineFamily. Newest commit to the University of Michigan! I want to thank everyone thats helped me! #GoBlue

I think many people saw this coming. W00T W00T. Welcome Mason!
DO A BARRELL ROLL!!!
Michael Ferns: Get this man his T-Shirt!
Huge get for us. Not only because it gives us a great OL commit, but because it puts us in a great position for Artavis Scott and George Campbell.
Go Blue Mr. Cole!
Call Michael Ferns to send Mason his shirts so he can start representing it down in Florida. Congrats, welcome aboard Mason!
I wonder if he already got the shirt and kept it on the downlow?
Nope Ferns tweeted that the shirt is in the mail now.
