DeSoto Looms

Texas wide receiver William Cole denies a favorite but admits to favoring Texas A&M, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma State and Arkansas--all of whom have offered. "A&M is recruiting me the most," Cole said. "People around here love A&M and would like for me to go there."

Three-star wide receiver William Cole (5-11, 170, 4.5), from Cedar Hill (Texas), has helped lead his team to the regional finals against district rival, DeSoto on December 9. Cole plays quarterback for his team and has had approximately 1500 yards passing with 15 touchdowns. He also rushed for an additional 200 yards. Cole says that he has a total of 35 touchdowns for the season.

Texas A&M, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma State and Arkansas lead for the talented youngster who denies a favorite.

Texas A&M defensive line coach Stan Eggen visited Cole for an in-home visit last week. "He says that A&M has incredible alumni support and that would really help me in the future."

Cole also had an in-home visit from Nebraska on November 25. "Coach Ted Gilmore (wide receiver coach) said that they'd like me to play both offense and defense and that he's sure I'd have a lot of fun there," Cole said. "But he also told me how much they stress academics and that they have the best grad rate in the Big 12. I want to go to college and get my degree, so that's important to me.

"Nebraska's been really good this year and they've really turned it around," Cole said. "They are now a winning team. I like the coaches a lot too."

Cole hasn't set up any official visits yet. "I'll set them up once our season ends," Cole said. "Hopefully, I'll be able to take at least three or four trips."

He reports a 2.7 core GPA and a 66 ACT--which he is retaking on December 9. Recommended Stories
