Cole Luke is a quiet kid.
In-person interviews with Luke during the recruiting process were rare and telephone interviews with him were almost non-existent, especially late in the process.
But Luke (pictured) isn’t just quiet with reporters, the 2013 Arizona cornerback is quiet in general.
That personality trait made it difficult for many, including some who were intimately involved with it, to get a grasp on exactly what was going on with Luke’s recruitment. The one person who always seemed to have the pulse of Luke’s feelings was his Hamilton High School coach Steve Belles.
Belles played at Notre Dame in the 1980s and while he’s never pushed any of his players to his alma mater, he was never shy to express optimism that one eventually would. The Irish had recruited several of his players over the years and he’s always maintained his belief that each prospect needed to make his own decision because it would be their college experience.
