Cook Commits to Iowa

Iowa picked up its third known verbal commitment in the 2015 recruiting class when Iowa City Regina quarterback Drew Cook pledged the the Hawkeyes and coach Kirk Ferentz.

Iowa landed its third know verbal commitment in the 2015 recruiting class when local quarterback Drew Cook accepted a Hawkeye scholarship offer, according to Hawk Central.

The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Cook led Iowa City Regina to a 14-0 record and a state championship in November. His father, Marv Cook, was a standout tight end with the Hawkeyes and the New England Patriots.

Drew Cook said he did not discuss what position he would play at Iowa with Coach Kirk Ferentz. He played almost exclusively quarterback this past season.

The Hawkeyes already have a commitment from a four-star quarterback in the '15 class, albeit one that might be wavering. Benet Academy (Lisle, IL) signal caller Jack Beneventi told us Tuesday that he's considering other schools.

Beneventi decided to look around after Iowa offered a scholarship to West Des Moines Dowling Quarterback Ryan Boyle earlier this month. Boyle has not accepted the offer to date.

Marv Cook starred at West Branch in the 1980s and played the position initially at Iowa. He then switched to tight end.

Drew Cook completed 183 of 267 passes (68.5) for 2,563 yards and 22 touchdowns against three interceptions this season according to the Iowa High School Athletic Association website. He also carried the ball 94 times for 440 yards and five scores.
