Qwynnterrio (pronounced kwin-ter-ee-oh) Cole transferred from Alcorn State to Louisville for the 2021 season, earning honorable mention All-ACC accolades with 86 tackles, five for loss, an interception and six pass breakups in 13 starts. Cole was one of the top defenders at the FCS level in both 2018 and 2019 and likely would have been in 2020 if COVID-19 had not halted play for most schools in the division. Alcorn also did not play in the spring of 2021 due to the pandemic. As a junior in 2019, he was named first-team All-SWAC and led the Braves to the Celebration Bowl for the second straight year (both losses to champs North Carolina A&T). He started 12 of 13 games that season (86 tackles, team-high five interceptions, one pass breakup) and seven of 13 contests in 2018 (team-high 76 tackles, 4.5 for loss, three interceptions, five pass breakups). Cole played in 12 games as a reserve his true freshman season, making eight stops. The former football, basketball (playing for former NBA star Penny Hardaway) and track star at East Memphis High School did not receive any FBS offers. -- by Chad Reuter
