Michigan’s highly touted 2014 recruiting class has seven players that have enrolled early and are currently in class and in the weight training program at the school. In our newest TBHR series, we profile each of these seven players and take a close look at what they will bring to the program.
In our third profile of Michigan’s early enrollees from the 2014 class, we take a look at an offensive line piece that should be a key part of this team down the road. Check out our profile after the jump.
Name: Mason Cole
Position: Offensive Guard
Height/Weight: 6-4, 285
Location: East Lake High School (Tarpon Springs, Fl)
Class of 2014
Committed to Michigan (Early Enrollee)
Scouting Report: Cole is a four-star prospect and the eighth-overall guard in the 2014 class, according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. He has a good frame with plenty of room to grow. He is a solid pass blocker with decent enough footwork. Moves very well from side to side and is a good run blocking guard, as well. He needs to improve his punch moves a bit, but there is a lot to like about his skill set.
What He Brings to Michigan: Cole fits the bill pretty well of what Michigan is looking for in the offensive lineman they recruit. A run-blocker by trade, Cole should be a good player down the line and a mainstay along the offensive line.
