"Louisville called him Monday and offered a scholarship," Blinn coach Brad Francione said.
Cook, who runs a sub 4.5 forty, is a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. He has helped lead Blinn C.C. to a perfect 10-0 record this season and the No. 1 NJCAA ranking. They'll take on No. 17 Kilgore (TX) in the SWJCFC Championship Game this Saturday for the right to play in the NJCAA championship game.
"He' exceptional," Blinn defensive line coach Denauld Brown said. "He's very athletic. I've coached in NFL Europe the past few years and he has rare athleticism. He uses his hands great and has incredible acceleration and burst to the ball."
"We play him at weak-side defensive end and teams can't block him with one person," added Franchione. "He's fast and he's not going to be blocked by one person."
Cook has 47 tackles (35 solo), seven tackles for loss, 15 quarterback hurries and nine quarterback sacks this season. Cook also has caused three fumbles and has broken up three passes, one that led to an interception. He also covers kicks and punts on special teams.
"He gets better each week and he's had a great season," added Brown. "He makes highlight-type plays. He's had a bunch of big hits and exceptional plays this year. He's hopped over fullbacks to sack the quarterback. That type of thing."
In high school, Scott was a 2004 All-Pinellas County selection and a third team 3A All-State selection after recording 18 tackles for loss and 14 sacks as a senior. He also blocked a pair of punts, forced eight fumbles and recovered four fumbles.
"He does OK in the classroom," Brown said. "He's always had good progress reports and he will graduate. He projects as a spring graduate."
"He can play anywhere in the nation," Brown said. "He can drop into coverage and we've really exploited his athleticism with some different things here. He could make the transition to linebacker, but I assume Louisville wants to keep him as a rush end."
