"The PAC-12 is great, but being recognized is too," Cole told Cali Gold Mine.
Cole has also played quarterback for the Knights, who are currently 2-1 after losing to state powerhouse Grant-Sacramento 28-14 on Sept. 12. He added that Utah of the PAC-12 has shown "some interest."
Cole, who stands at 5-foot-11 and 165-pounds, finished with four tackles in the 14-point loss to Grant. The junior and second-year varsity player said he's not satisfied with the interest from the PAC-12.
"My goal is to get a lot more (interest)," Cole said.
WRIGHT GETTING INTEREST UP NORTH
Michael Wright of Dinuba has received some love from the Northern part of California.
The four-year varsity running back visited Sacramento State on Sept. 13 and took in a Hornets game against Weber State. Wright's father, Michael Sr., said UC Davis called his son on Monday, Sept. 15, and said the conversation went really well.
"They asked him to come up for a game and they like what they see (of him) so far," Michael Sr. said. "The education at UC Davis and the fact they (the Aggies) want him at running back makes it interesting."
Wright has a team-high 317 rushing yards and four touchdowns for the 2-1 Emperors. He has 3,742 yards in his prep career.
