The game will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.
“Timothy is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Brenham High School,” said John Myers, Director of Strategic Communications, Marketing and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Timothy possesses similar mental, emotional and physical strengths to Army Strong Soldiers. We are proud to honor all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and congratulate each of them on their selection.”
The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #16 outside linebacker in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Cole is committed to play his college ball for Texas.
Scout Eval: He's big, fast, and can defend against teams that run the spread. That said, he's aggressive enough linebacker that likes to come down hill and blow up a running back. He will be an asset due to his ability to be versatile. He's a good enough to cover college tight ends and possibly wide receivers in the slot. He has to learn to fight through the blocking and wrap up better, but has nice upside ability due to his size/speed combination.
