Brian Cole taking the JUCO route over Kentucky

Once believed to be a future Wildcat, Michigan transfer Brian Cole has decided to take his talents to junior college. Cole is headed to East Mississippi Community College, not Kentucky, per 247Sports. He had previously been bound for Lexington, where he was originally scheduled to sit out the 2016 season and then have three seasons of eligibility going forward.

Cole signed with Michigan as the No. 1 recruit in the state and No. 65 overall in the entire 2015 class. A wide receiver/safety option, he was the No. 5 athlete in that group.

He will still consider Kentucky after JUCO, according to the report. Still, it’s a tough loss for Stoops & Co. as Cole would’ve really helped after sitting out his transfer year.

    Good thing Vince gets all that money. Doesn’t actually coach and now he can’t even beat JUCO for kids.

      What would Loserville fans do if UK did not have message boards? I know the answer is attend a hooker party thrown by mama, also the lead attraction with sis and cousin Anna..
      JUCO route means the kid will play this season instead of sitting out. After that he can go where he wants and play, maybe even UK still. Could be a grade issue as well, leaving little choice.

    Going JUCO pretty much means grade issues. Would have been a great addition – if eligible.
