Michael Cole the soon to be senior at Cave Spring High in Roanoke committed to Virginia Tech this evening. Coles stock shot up after impressive performances at camps and he ultimately selected VT over Penn State. He's 6'3" tall and weighs 198 pounds. Depending on how he matures he'll most likely play whip, backer or rover. Like most of the 2010 commitments he's an under the radar kid with high potential.
I came away impressed after watching his film. From what I saw above he plays well in space, shedding blocks while quickly closing on ball carriers. He's got a nice explosiveness about him. His pursuit angles are technically sound. Although, it looks like he relies on his size, rather than form, to make tackles, but he has plenty of time to improve on that.
