Ohio State Offers Third Miramar (Fla.) Standout

Another day, another Ohio State offer in south Florida as Zach Smith continues his assault on the Sunshine State. Today, Ohio State offered Tyrek Cole, one of the nation's premiere cover corners for the 2015 recruiting class and a Florida State commitment. 

Cole, a 5-foot-11, 170 pound corner has been waiting to hear from the Buckeyes for a while, despite his January 9th commitment to Florida State. Now that the Buckeyes have offered, he doesn't deny having some excitement about the opportunity.

"It feels great to get this offer," Cole told Eleven Warriors. "I mean, it's Ohio State. It's a great place with a ton of tradition and the Buckeyes have always been in and won some great bowl games. I know they've had a number of really good cornerbacks in the past that have come from there."

The conversation between he and Smith was the first time Cole has been able to get to know the Buckeye wide receiver coach, but he says he looks forward to further interaction.

"It was nice talking to Smith and getting the offer," he said. "He seems like a great guy, someone who really cares about the athletes he coaches. I'll visit there in the summer for sure."

As they say in recruiting, sometimes an early commitment only really means that you know who you're biggest competition will be down the road. Cole and his teammates, Kendrell McFadden and Kahlil Lewis (both committed to West Virginia,) will all take a longer look at Ohio State moving forward.
