East Lake’s Mason Cole and Artavis Scott, two of the most touted prospects in the 2014 class, each received an offer from Ohio State on Thursday, Eagles coach Bob Hudson said via text message.

Cole and Scott already have an offer from Florida State and are expected to have plenty from major Division I colleges before spring practice ends this month.

Last year, Cole, an offensive tackle, anchored a line that paved the way for Tyler Lane to rush for than 1,500 yards. Scott, a receiver, emerged as a big-time threat with 1,158 yards and 12 touchdowns. Both played a big role in helping the Eagles advance to the Class 8A region finals for the first time where they lost to eventual state champion Plant.

Cole and Mason are expected to get plenty of attention of college scouts on Saturday when East Lake plays defending Class 7A state champion Bradenton Manatee in a referee’s scrimmage.
