Miramar (Fla.) High School Class of 2015 CB Tyrek Cole is already considered to be one of the top south Florida prospects around. The electrifying talent is being recruited by some of the most prestigious college football programs in the nation. Last spring alone he racked up over ten scholarship offers.

The rising junior currently holds over 16 scholarship offers, but has no front runners at the moment. Although, he may not have any favorites, he did mention that Miami, Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, Texas, and Tennessee are recruiting him the hardest.

Of what he likes about Miami, Cole said, "The history of the program, and it's my hometown (school). It's also a great academic school, and a great defensive back school."

Knee deep into his summer break, Cole is focused on improving his game.

"Right now, I'm focused on working hard in the weight room, and getting quicker and faster," Cole said. "I'm actually going to the Friday Night Lights camp up in Gainesville soon."

Cole has not had the chance to visit many schools this summer, so visiting the University of Florida has him excited.

"I want to see the facilities, and meet the whole coaching staff," Cole said. "I just want to enjoy my time up there, and compete at the friday night lights event."

The standout prospect is looking for a school that can provide two major factors.

"First you have to go with the academic stand point, and after that is playing time," Cole said. "I'd rather play early."

Cole recently participated in one of IMG's 7-on-7 tournaments, and he learned a lot doing so.

"It was a great tournament," Cole said. "I played with a lot of competition, so it made me better. I also learned that you have to play every play a hundred percent, because at those tournaments you're playing with great players that have a lot of talent."

There have been rumors swirling around that Cole could be committing soon, but not even he is sure of when he will commit. It could be before the season or even after the season. At this point, he is just weighing all his option.
