TN ATH Lands UK Offer

Alcoa (Tn.) High School was very good to Kentucky this past year and it appears the Wildcats could be on the right track to land another for 2008.

After coming in Kentucky camp with offers on the table from Middle Tennessee State and Ole Miss (verbal), Alcoa (Tn.) quarterback/defensive back Randall Cobb left with another.

"I went up there for the Kentucky football camp," Cobb said. "It was a one-day camp, this past weekend and I got an offer afterwards. I played pretty well, I guess."

So what does the two-way athlete think of Lexington?

"I really like it up there, alot," Cobb added, "It also helps them out alot that my best friend and teammate - Kyrus Lanxter - is up there. He's always asking if I've committed yet and if I'm gonna come up there and join him."

The 5-foot-11, 175 pound gunslinger threw for over 1,800 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior. Impressively, despite throwing the ball a tremendous amount in comparison to other programs in the state of Tennessee, the senior-to-be only threw four interceptions.

"I just wanna make sure I'm 100% before I commit," Cobb said. "I know (Kyrus) wants me up there with him and wants me to play with him in college, but it's a big decision and I just wanna make sure I am 100% sure."

Also making his decision tough is Middle Tennessee State, whose offer has made his choice a tougher one. .

"It's nice up there, too," Cobb expressed. "I really like the coaches a whole lot there. Both places are two nice places and I couldn't go wrong with either."
