Recruiting Update with Top 100 CB Anthony Cook

Scout gets a recruiting update from Anthony Cook, who is the No. 1 rated CB prospect in the Lone Star State and one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the nation.

Anthony Cook, a 6-foot-0, 170-pound cornerback from Houston (Texas) Lamar has had a busy off-season. He has been racking up an abundance of top offers and tearing up the camp and combine tour. 

One of his most recent visits was to see the Texas Longhorns for the junior day experience, where he got a feel for the new coaching staff at the school and the current vibe in Austin, Texas.

"Man it was a just a different atmosphere," Cook said. "The whole coaching staff was cool. They are changing things around and it is headed in the right direction."

He confirmed that he will be back at UT soon. 

"I will be going to the Texas spring game," Cook reported.

There are some other schools that he has his eyes on seeing. He did not get to make it in for the LSU junior day on Saturday, so he has Baton Rouge high on his list of visit priorities. 

"LSU, most definitely," Cook answered when asked about schools he wants to see this spring. "I missed the junior day, so within the next three weeks I need to get to LSU.

I am looking forward to just seeing their DBs, so it would be nice if I could go to their spring game and see their DBs in action. I was talking to coach (Corey) Raymond and he said my recruitment is going to be critical to ‘18, because by the time I got there a lot of their top guys will be gone."

"I gotta get up to Ohio State and I would like to get up to Notre Dame." 

Cook is closing in on releasing a Top 10 or Top 5 type of list soon. 

"I am looking for the opportunity to come in and play and make an immediate impact," Cook said. "I do not care if it close to home or anything like that."

Cook is rated very high on all of the rankings websites, but he is not settling for where he is at. He wants to climb higher and higher. 

"You can’t ever stop and be happy with where you are," Cook stated. "I want to be No. 1 in the country."

As a junior, Cook picked off four passes for a Houston Lamar team that went 11-2 and reached the third round of the Texas Class 6A Division I playoffs.

He is an Under Armour All-American.
