ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Even 2014 ESPN Watch List offensive lineman Mason Cole (Tarpon Springs, Fla./East Lake) has to laugh at himself when he refers to 60 degrees as “chilly.”

The Chicago native, who has been living in Florida for the past eight years, admits that while he enjoys the sunny weather, he still craves the snow and blustery winters of the Windy City. In fact, it’s one of the things he -- unlike many other Southern prospects -- enjoys about Midwest schools.

“I miss it,” Cole said of the cold weather. “I’m glad I’ve never had to spend Christmas down here when it’s hot.”
