BlueandGold.com provides a Cole Luke bio with analysis, projection and more.
Notre Dame assistant coach Bob Elliott gave his thoughts about CB signee Cole Luke on UND.com moments ago. Luke is a product of Hamilton High, which is coached by former Notre Dame quarterback Steve Belles.
"Cole is a great kid. He’s a fairly quiet young man. He’s one of those guys that just doesn’t need a whole lot of attention, which you love. In the recruiting business, everybody wants attention. Cole is one of those guys that doesn’t crave that. Comes from great bloodlines; his uncle is Darren Woodson, who played for the Cowboys (safety). Darren was important in the recruiting process; he helped Cole sort through all the recruiting issues that a young man faces and gave him really good advice. I think Darren has coached him along and helped him with his technique over the years. They’ve got great coaches down at Hamilton High School, including Steve Belles, who is a former Notre Dame star.
"Cole is a guy that is very polished. We like him physically. He’s got speed, height, which we require in our cornerbacks here at Notre Dame. He’s got really smooth hips and good change of direction. All those things we like. He’ll tackle. We think he’s an excellent football player. We like his demeanor, his maturity and just the way he carries himself more than anything."
