As if the race wasn't tight enough, things just got tighter for four-star wide receiver William Cole.
The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder has taken two official visits thus far to Kansas and to Arkansas. This past weekend was Cole's trip to check out the Razorbacks. Cedar Hill coach Joey McGuire broke down the process for the Rivals250 prospect and what's next for him just weeks before Signing Day.
"Well, he went to Arkansas this past weekend and really enjoyed it," McGuire said. "He liked everything they showed him there just like the visit to Kansas. Every time he comes back from a visit, it gets harder for him because he likes everything about it.
"Now, he's trying to decide between four schools with two visit weekends remaining. He's either going to visit Oklahoma State or Missouri this weekend. Then after that, on that final weekend, he's going to visit Arizona or Texas A&M."
McGuire says that after Cole plans to have a decision made just days before Signing Day on Feb. 4.
There was a rumor that the talented Cole was going to take a trip to Nebraska in the middle of this week, but McGuire says that he has heard nothing about that.
"He told me, he said coach, 'I'm not going to any school in the middle of the week' and Nebraska hasn't sent me anything about a visit," McGuire said. "I haven't talked to them about anything like that in regards to a trip, so I don't know where that came from."
The most interesting development has been in that the offensive star Cole actually prefers to play cornerback. McGuire says that Cole feels that on defense, he may be more valuable to a program.
McGuire also mentioned that Arkansas was the first school to recruit Cole solely on defense from the very beginning.
As for favorites, there doesn't appear to be one.
"As elusive as he was on the football field, he's not nearly as fast about this recruiting process," McGuire said. "Honestly, he's still just trying to figure out what the best place is for him."
