Thomas Cole pledged his services earlier this week, giving the UCLA Bruins their 10th pledge for the class of 2021 at the time. In doing so, his commitment jumped the Bruins past Cal in the race for a top-four recruiting class in the Pac-12.
Cole is a four-star prospect from 247Sports and his evaluation speaks to his potential:
Has an ideal tackle frame and is a fluid athlete. Has a basketball background and it shows in how athletic he is. Shows excellent lateral mobility and can get to the second level with ease.
