Coming off of a national championship season, Florida State has all of the momentum in the state of Florida and they have seen the benefits of that in recruiting early on in the 2015 cycle.
One of those players that has committed to the Noles is cornerback Tyrek Cole (5-10, 170, Miramar, FL High) who is committed to the Seminoles but keeping his options open.
“I’m pretty solid to Florida State right now,” Cole said. “But I still have my options open to other schools right now.”
One of the schools that is still recruiting Cole hard is the Florida Gators, who at one time was considered the top school for Cole.
“I talk to Coach T-Rob from Florida a good bit,” Cole said. “He came by my school in January and after that we’ve had a few good talks about Florida. I really like Coach T-Rob because he’s a cool coach and a laid back kind of dude. We talk more about my mom and off the field stuff than we do football.”
Now that Cole is in the offseason and has more free time, he has plans to get around to other colleges including the team he’s committed too.
“I plan to visit Florida State on March 1st,” Cole said. “I plan to go to Ohio State this summer too and I’ll be visiting Florida this summer.”
When Cole moves to his senior year next September he will be able to take his five allotted official visits and he already knows the schools that will get official visits.
“Florida, South Carolina, Auburn, Alabama and Florida State are going to get official visits from me this fall,” Cole said. “I want to take those visits for games this fall though so I’ll have them done early.”
When Florida receives Cole’s official visit this fall the FSU commit says he knows what he needs to see from the Gators to give them a chance of flipping him.
“Florida is a great school and stuff like that,” Cole said. “Florida is doing everything right in my recruitment and they just need to keep showing me love and they have a chance to flip me then.”
