Aledo, Texas, two-star receiver Cole Loftin has been working hard this summer in both football and baseball. He hopes the reward of competing in baseball will help him be in great shape for the football season.
"Well, I work out every day about 6:30 until later in the day," he said. "I have a lot of baseball. I just finished that. I played like 10 games a week, so other than that, I don't have that much time to do much."
With scholarship offers from Utah, Loftin said things have been kind of quiet the past few weeks as college coaches are also preparing for the upcoming season.
"I think a lot of the coaches are on vacation or getting ready for the season, so I haven't heard from a lot of people lately," he said. "I just keep up a little bit with them. I'm being recruited as a slot receiver. I'm a versatile receiver that can get open in a lot of different ways to help the team win."
Loftin is just beginning to sort through the process, but he does have one team that kind of does stand out.
"I guess Utah since they offered me," Loftin, who is 6-foot and 174 pounds, said. "I think I'm going to go take a trip up there in a week and see what it's like. I haven't gotten an offer from Houston. I talked to them one night and that's about it."
Loftin isn't sure when he'll make a decision. He's also getting looks from Colorado State, Stanford, SMU and TCU.
"I'm leaning towards Utah, but I haven't decided when I'm going to commit yet or when I will," Loftin said.
So what will the perfect school have for Loftin?
"I'm looking for a good school academically, good offense, defense, good coaches, facilities, just a good school to go to," he said.
