Player Overview

After redshirting in 2012, Cole had four catches for 39 yards in limited playing time as a reserve in 2013. He played in 12 games in 2014, finishing with 15 catches for 145 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Cole emerged as a bigger contributor as a junior, hauling in 19 receptions for 262 yards and a touchdown while averaging 20.2 yards per catch in 13 games in 2015.

Cole was highly recruited coming out of Mitchell High School in Memphis, and chose Cincinnati over offers from elite programs including Alabama, Stanford and Tennessee. He was ranked a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and Scout.com after catching 65 passes for 942 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good body thickness and strong hands to win a high percentage of the 50/50 balls thrown his way, attacking away from his body and wrestling the ball away mid-air if needed. He also shows his physicality as a ballcarrier, delivering blows and not escaping out of bounds. Runs his routes to the proper depth with controlled footwork to give his quarterback a clean window.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks preferred size for the position. Isn't the type of start/stop athlete who will consistently create with athleticism alone
