FSU Feels Like Home For Jamel Cook

Jamel Cook can play multiple positions on defense, but the Florida State coaches have one in mind for him.

Miami (Fla.) Miami Central 4-star safety Jamel Cook visited Florida State again on Friday for the final day of the June Jimbo Fisher Camp. Cook committed to the Seminoles on his last visit to Tallahassee in February. In addition to Florida State he holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Miami, and Notre Dame among many others.

Coming back up to Florida State gave Cook the same feeling as when he committed.

“It just feels like home,” Cook said. “I feel like this is the place for me and I love being a Seminole. I’m one-hundred percent committed to Florida State.”

Cook worked at both cornerback and receiver during the camp and excelled at both positions.

“I feel like I did good,” Cook said. “I feel like I did great. I had a good camp. I didn’t drop any passes so I did alright.”

Cook is freakishly athletic, and can play multiple positions. He doesn’t care which position he plays though.

“I want to play any position that helps Florida State win,” Cook said. “I’ll play wherever Jimbo [Fisher] needs me at.”

The Florida State coaches do have a position in mind for the 6-foot-4.5, 190-pound athlete.

“Coach Kelly wants to play me at star,” Cook said. “He said he sees me as Ramsey because he played safety, corner, and star so he thinks I can play all over the defense.”

Cook is rated as the No. 5 safety and No. 77 recruit overall in the 2016 Scout 300.
