On the field, Cook has the most to prove out of anyone in the top 20, however, it's his pure physical ability that makes him a top "prospect". At 6-4 and 270 pounds, Cook won the State Title in the 4X100 and the shot put. Only one other person has matched that feat in the state of Georgia. A player by the name of Herschel Walker. While saying anyone has that kind of potential is a reach, but Cook moves better than nearly every player in the nation that can match his size. College recruiters will rush to Washington-Wilkes in hopes of getting a signature from Cook. He currently plays defensive end, but with his size and quickness, he is a sure bet to play the tackle position in college.
Cook had a good season on defense last year with 65 tackles and 6 sacks, but he has yet to harness that cast potential. For a player of his ability he doesn't make all of the plays that he should. If he can get his production to match his potential, we're talking about a #1 player in the south. His physical ability alone is enough to land him in the top 10 at #8.
