Favorites change for JUCO Alex Cook

Scout.com four-star defensive end Alex Cook of Blinn C.C. has a couple new schools among his short list of favorites. The 6'3, 225-pound prospect has helped his team to the top of the NJCAA poll and is set to play in the title game on December 9.

After helping Blinn (Tex.) C.C. claim it's first conference title since 1996 and a number one ranking, Scout.com four-star junior college prospect Alex Cook is gearing up for the National Junior College Football championship on December 9.

Cook, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound defensive end, has helped anchor a stingy defense all season, recording 53 total tackles, including 10 for a loss and nine sacks.

However, while he's keeping busy with game preparations, Cook is also keeping some of his attention on the many program's attempting to sign the Florida native.

"I'm trying to schedule my visits right now, but my schedule is all screwed up right now," said Cook. "I didn't get to go to Arkansas this week because of the Thanksgiving holiday and I'm supposed to visit Southern Miss. I plan on visiting Louisville too."

Cook recently had claimed Louisville as his top school of choice and while the Cardinal program remains high on his list, Bobby Petrino and his staff will have to thwart off a handful of programs that are making a strong push for the talented prospect.

"My favorites right now are Tennessee, Louisville, Arkansas, Southern Miss and Florida," responded Cook. "All of them but Florida have offered."

"They are all pretty even right now," he continued. "I need to take a couple of my visits so I can see what each place has, but I'm going to wait until our season is over."

Cook also holds scholarship offers from Hawaii, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and UTEP.
