UK Commit Enjoys Visit

2008 Kentucky Wildcat Football Recruiting Update from Kentucky Sports Report's Rob Gidel

Randall Cobb Profile

Alcoa (Tn.) HS quarterback/wide reciever Randall Cobb visited the University of Kentucky for an unofficial visit.

"The trip was great," Cobb said. "I went up there with my good friend, Stephen Shivery from Maryville High School."

Cobb, who committed to the Wildcats in the summer, wanted to take in the festivities for game one of the season, but also see his former teammate and best friend, Kyrus Lanxter.

"He played well," Cobb said. "He said that college is a lot harder than high school and that I better be ready to play. He said he's been learning a lot."

As far as his trip, the Wildcat coaching staff has made it clear, they will continue to recruit Randall Cobb very hard in hopes he'll honor his commitment.

"I talked with Coach Phillips before the game," Cobb said. "He was excited to see me up there. He told me he can't wait until I'm a Wildcat. I got to meet some of the other recruits on the trip. I was trying to talk Steve into coming to UK. It was overall a great experience to see how much tradition they have."

Cobb continues to help Alcoa towards another state title, although they did experience the season's first trip-up this past weekend against his friend Steve's team, Maryville.

"The season is going pretty good," Cobb indicated. "The first week, I had sprain ankle, and I didn't get to do as much as I would have liked. Against Maryville, I was 100%. We had a good first half, but in the second half we let things slip away and didn't get the win."

Cobb hopes to continue to keep working on his game before he heads to Kentucky.

"I'm working on getting more explosive and getting some more quickness," Cobb said. "I need to get a little more quick on my feet if I wanna play quarterback in the SEC."

After watching backup quarterback Mike Hartline perform, though, Cobb believes he may possibly see a position switch at the next level.

"I have a feeling that it will be receiver," Cobb said. "They really like that Quarterback that they brought in and he looked really good.I wouldn't mind competing, but I also want to get on the field and help the team."
