Top rated recruit in Texas, Anthony Cook, released his Top-10

The top-rated player in the state of Texas, corner back Anthony Cook, released his Top-10.

Corner back Anthony Cook released his Top-10 Thursday afternoon in a simple tweet, stating that Baylor, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame,  Ohio State, USC, and Texas were the schools he was focusing on.

The 5-star corner back from Lamar High School in Houston is the top-rated player in the state of Texas.  At 6-feet, 168 pounds, he has prototypical height to be a shut down corner.  He is the second rated corner in the nation, and the 8th overall recruit in the Scout rankings.

A 2017 U.S. Army All-American, Cook had 4 interceptions for an 11-2 Lamar team that reached the third round of the Texas Class 6A Division I Playoffs.  


This is what a cover corner is supposed to look like. He not only has the hips and build of an elite level island corner Cook also has plus size at the position at around 6’0, a true rare combination of skills. He is still a bit skinny but is starting to really blow up frame wise as well and that has helped him catch the eye of pretty much every top program in the nation. He has a knack for making plays on the football and if you put up a 50-50 ball he is going to come down with it 75% of the time. He plays against good competition and comes from a program that has been known to produce some of the best defensive backs in the state and has competed strongly at every major camp event on the national level in the off-season, proving he matches up well with receivers who are already bigger and stronger. - Greg Powers
