Cole Makes an Impression on the Coach

Chris Courtney of Educk got a word with Coach Kelly after practice, and the Ducks head man had praise for  Sophomore wide receiver Nick Cole:

"Nick's gotten better," Kelly stated. "We're down a couple of receivers, but we don't talk about who's playing what level. When someone's gone down, someone jumps in. Nick has really improved this spring and is putting himself in the mix...if we played today, he'd be playing for us."

Cole's emergence is timely.  Josh Huff was helped off the field with an injury today, and it looked like a knee.  With Jeff Maehl and D.J. Davis already gone, there are a lot of reps and receptions to go around.  The 6-3, 195-lb. Cole has decent speed, and an upside.  The sophomore averaged 21.5 yards a reception his senior year of high school.
