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.

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....

Offered by Alabama, Michigan, OSU, Florida, Florida State and a bunch of other of the top teams and......Indiana.  Guess Kevin Wilson forgot he wasn't at Oklahoma anymore.  This also bodes well for Michigan in the wake of the Montgomery move since Jerry was his primary recruiter.  Michigan sells itself baby!

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.

Now that's just crazy talk.  From all accounts the guy was a good coach and a good recruiter.  Hoke and Co. will likely hire another coach (not for DL, but perhaps for another position group) that is also a good coach and good recruiter. 

Jerry Montgomery leaving was not the end of the world as some posters seemed afraid of, but it is also not "cutting dead weight". 

Edit:  If you were using sarcasm, Sushi, I totally missed it. 

MN Go Blue

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!

Woohoo!  I've been in serious withdrawls since the Mone commit, thanks for the fix Mason! 

Looks like the metha-cruiting clinic will have one less tweaker to take care of tonight!

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!
