Central Michigan offered Clarkston High tight end Cole Chewins on Saturday at their junior day, making the Chippewas the first school to send one his way.
"It’s a great feeling knowing you put in all extra time and work and for you to finally accomplish your dream, it's great."
The offer made the day for Chewins but he says he also had a very nice visit and a good time in Mount Pleasant.
"I really liked it when I went and visited. I got a good feel for how the coaching staff runs things. Coach Enos is a nice guy and I got to knoe Coach Barry and they're all real nice people. I like what they're doing with the program. The school is nice. We got a tour of campus, so that was a real great experience."
At 6-foot-7, 215 pounds, Chewins has a big frame and has a lot of growing left to do, which begs the question, is he Central's next tight end to NFL offensive tackle prospect?
"When I talked to them, from my understanding, they're looking at me to play tight end. They like all the versatility of being able to play me at tackle or defensive end, but right now, most likely, it's tight end."
Chewins says he does not have any other visits set right now because of his basketball schedule and the amount of snow days his school has had. He is also hearing from Michigan State, Michigan and other programs.
