Miramar four-star cornerback Tyrek Cole announced his commitment to West Virginia on Monday night, just a few hours after publicly announcing his de-commitment from Florida State on his Twitter account.

Cole originally committed to FSU on Jan. 9, but his status with the Seminoles has been in limbo for months.

Now, Cole has plans to become a Mountaineer alongside former Miramar coach and current WVU linebackers coach Damon Cogdell, and four of his Miramar teammates -- cornerback Kendrell McFadden, running back Alex Anderson and wide receivers Jovon Durante and Kahlil Lewis.

“We’ve actually been fighting for it,” McFadden said. “Talking to [Cole] and motivating him, trying to get him to switch over with us. So now that we finally got our brother to come over with us, now we’re complete.”

Added Lewis: “Our brotherhood is just going to move to another school. We’ve been thinking about this since ninth grade. We ain’t know what school it was going to be so I guess right now, we’re going to West Virginia.”

Cole becomes the 18th member of West Virginia’s 2015 football recruiting class, also joining Pompano Beach Blanche Ely cornerback Kevin Williams and Hialeah Miami-Lakes cornerback Antonio Howard.

Cogdell and WVU running backs coach JaJuan Seider, who is originally from Belle Glade, have made recruiting South Florida a priority and have landed one of the top players on the Mountaineers’ board in Cole.

“It’s going to be great,” Lewis said about reuniting with Cogdell. “He’s like our dad. He always gives us advice. Tells us what not to do when we need help.”

“I don’t have a dad. He’s been there for me ever since.”

National Signing Day for the Class of 2015 is Feb. 4.
