(ANN ARBOR) – The ante for high school football players announcing where they’ll play college ball continues to be raised. Just last week, one kid gave his pledge to Florida by pulling out a live baby alligator. This past Saturday, Brian Cole did something quite a bit less insane and yet still more creative. Cole, a four-star cornerback/athlete from Saginaw, committed to the University of Michigan by channeling the tactics of another free agent. Earlier this summer, of course, LeBron James announced he was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers by writing an essay for Sports Illustrated, which was accompanied with a photo of James and the words “I’m Coming Home” printed in bold font. Cole must have taken notes, because he told Michigan fan he was heading to Ann Arbor by having a picture of himself taken with the words, “I'm Staying Home” across the front.
