Former Michigan Wolverine has eyes on Kentucky, plans to visit

Brian Cole, a highly sought after recruit from the 2015 recruiting class, played one season at Michigan last fall but will no longer be a member of the Wolverines football program.

A four-star talent, ranked fifth among athletes and 65th overall, had offers from Ohio State, Michigan State, Nebraska and several others at the time of his commitment to Michigan. He played very sparingly at wide receiver in his freshman season, and has since been granted his release from the university after requesting a transfer.

247Sports reports Cole is now looking at Kentucky, Pitt, Arizona and Arizona State as his next landing spot, with Kentucky likely to receive a visit in the coming weeks.

If he were to become a Wildcat, he would likely have to sit out the 2016 season, then be ready for competition in 2017. And if he is as good as his recruiting rankings suggest, UK would love to have him, and could really use him.

Come on down, Brian!

    I have heard reports that have him picking between Kentucky and Pitt. My source says he will choose UK as a 6’2″ 205lb strong safety. If this is true, the cat’s continue to add pieces to what looks to be a future star studded secondary. Cole would have to sit next season out.

    I’m hearing he will be a place holder. Can’t have enough of those.

      I just read where he was kicked off the team…Michigan tried him at holder but he kept “Charlie Browning” the kicker..
