Cook comes on board with the Tigers

Notre Dame quarterback Jeff Cook has sent his signed letter of intent to LSU.

Vital Data: A broken ankle curbed Cook's senior season, but he had already committed to the Tigers well before then. He has been rehabilitating from the injury and making good progress according to his head coach – who also happens to be his dad – Lewis Cook.


As a coach's son, Cook has the knowledge of the game you would expect. While he was a standout for the Pioneers at quarterback in their run to the Class 3A finals in 2000, he is expected to play free safety at LSU.


Tiger Rag's take: Cook has a lot of depth in front of him but shouldn't let that deter him a hard worker upon arriving on campus. If nothing else, he will give the Tigers an ideal student-athlete representative off the field and continues LSU's strong ties with the talent-rich Notre Dame High School program.

The Scoop: In the Nike Combine at LSU last May, Cook did not participate in the 40-yard dash, the 20-yard pro shuttle or the bench press. The one skill test he did post a mark in was the vertical jump, where he measured 32.1 inches.
