It's safe to say that Cedar Hill, Texas wide receiver prospect William Cole is having a senior season to remember. While he's focusing on his team, recruiting isn't completely off his mind either.
The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder has shifted from the running back to the quarterback position between his junior and senior seasons. That move apparently was a good one since Cole has rushed for 1,406 yards and 21 touchdowns while throwing for 929 more and 10 scores through the air. It still looks like Cole is leading the 5A Metroplex in the rushing mark and Cole says that getting to the playoffs is the most important thing.
"The difference is now that I can play quarterback, I can see the middle of the field," Cole said. "When I was at running back, it seemed weird for me behind those big linemen and hard to see. Plus, every game I play the game seems to slow down for me."
Cole says that quarterback isn't probably his best position on the next level and the mountain of scholarship offers he's collected has him set for either corner, receiver, or a return specialist. The talented Metroplex prospect isn't picky on a position.
As for recruiting, Cole hasn't taken any official visits yet because of the hectici senior year. However, once the senior campaign comes to an end on the gridiron and during his basketball season, he plans to take as many as he can.
"I'm definitely going to visit Missouri, Oklahoma State, probably Nebraska, and Texas A&M," Cole said. "Those are my four right now. I don't who will be the fifth trip. Kansas has been recruiting me hard, so they may be that last trip."
Cole says he'd like to make a decision during his school's winter break.
