Cook decision coming soon

No news is good news for Kansas State fans as they await Isaiah Cook's final decision. But while both K-State and Oregon State coaches remain in almost daily contact with the two-star linebacker, is he close to announcing his intentions?

No news is good news for Kansas State fans as they await the decision of California linebacker Isaiah Cook.

There is no news today on which school Cook will pick as he debates between K-State and Oregon State, not even a week after de-committing from the Wildcats. However, his forecast date for a decision is looking like Friday, so he said Tuesday.

Other things we know is that he is almost daily contact with both programs, the recent with the Wildcats being Monday night when coach Bill Snyder delivered his pitch again. Both schools are clearly not giving up on this talented prospect, who played safety all season, en route to 92 tackles, seven sacks, and four interceptions.

"It went well," he said of his conversation with Snyder. "He's not trying to rush me or anything. He's been pretty good about giving me some space to think things through. He's just told me about the history of the program and the linebackers he's had there."

The tune of his parents hasn't changed either. Cook's mother, Beverly said she is still working on Isaiah, "to the bitter end."

"He hasn't signed that letter of intent yet," she said Tuesday. "So if he chooses Oregon State, it's not over till he signs."

But despite his parent's and coach's wishes, Cook said he has their support, no matter where he goes.

"Everyone's been supportive of me," he said. "They all want me to be happy. I know that. And really I think both schools are perfect. I just have to find out what is best for me in the long run."
