The CMSB has learned that the University of Maine football team got their first verbal commitment this week from defensive end Michael Cole of North Brunswick, New Jersey. He was on the radar for much of the Big East, including Rutgers, UConn, South Florida, and Pitt, and was also on other CAA school's radars as well, but Maine won out. He was ranked in the Top 100 Defensive ends in the country by ESPN's scouting service. Signing day is Feb 4th.
