Mason Cole, an offensive tackle in the class of 2014, is coveted by many major college programs. Standing 6-5, 285 pounds, the lineman out of Tarpon Springs, Fla. already holds offers from the likes of Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, USC and Michigan, despite the fact he is only a junior in high school.
Ohio State has offered Cole and the Buckeyes would love to add this Floridian to their 2014 class. Having only two pure offensive linemen for 2013, Urban Meyer and company could look to add as many as 4-5 offensive linemen in 2014, and they would love for Cole to be a key part of next year’s class.
Though he lives in Florida, Cole grew up west of Chicago, so he was not born with a natural allegiance to the South. He has already set foot on the Ohio State campus and plans to come back at some point. Can Cole be another Mike Brewster and anchor the line in the name of the Sunshine State?
His teammate, Artavis Scott, earned an OSU offer when Buckeye coaches came down to scout Cole at East Lake High School in Tarpon Springs. Scott and Cole have talked about playing college football together and both have an Ohio State offer. Can the Buckeyes nab these two? Cole recently took some time to let Buckeye Nation get to know him better.
Ohio State picked up good news in the class of 2014 when some of the bigger names at running back trimmed their list to three and included Ohio State.
Derrell Scott (Havelock, N.C./Havelock) and Mikel Horton (West Chester, Ohio/Lakota West) like what they see in the Buckeyes as they move forward in the recruiting process.
Scott has offers from all three of his top choices and has narrowed things down to Florida State, Ohio State and South Carolina.
The first visit to Notre Dame went so well for 2014 offensive tackle Jimmy Byrne (Cleveland, Ohio/St. Ignatius), he decided to make it back again a few months later.
Byrne was back in South Bend, Ind., Saturday for the Fighting Irish's game against Michigan. The first time he was on campus he picked up an offer from Notre Dame.
"It was pretty crazy the whole day," said Byrne, who arrived around 1 p.m. "I got to do the walk with the team in the stadium, had sideline passes for pregame, and the game in general -- the crowd was going crazy. It was awesome."
