Standout LB High on UM

This player is one of the state's top linebacker prospects and was recently selected to play in the Cali-Florida all-star game in early January. He also addresses his recruiting situation in this interview.

At 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds, Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna standout linebacker Glenn Cook is getting ready for a state semi-final game on Friday night. Despite missing five games because of injuries and only playing in one quarter in others because of blowouts, Cook has 88 tackles and three interceptions.

"They got a lot of speed," Cook said of Pahokee. "They got a lot of speed at the skill positions. We just need to come out and play well and we should be OK. We're trying to take everything one game at a time."

Cook, a full academic qualifier, suffered a knee injury earlier in the season.

"I still wear a brace on it," he said, "but it's doing pretty good. It's holding up."

Cook, one of the state's top linebacker prospects, was recently selected to play in the Cali-Florida all-star game in early January. Cook also addressed the recruiting situation.

"I'm still committed to Miami," he said. "Ever since I committed to them, the other schools pretty much stopped calling. I talked to Coach Stoops on Monday and we're trying to work something out for a visit. It'll probably be the last weekend in January, around the 22nd or 24th or something like that."

Cook will be in the Orange Bowl on Saturday watching his future team.

"If they come out ready to play, they should be able to get to the title game again," he said. "I'll be there on Saturday."

Cook will likely make an official visit with teammate John Beason.

"He used to like FSU and Miami but now I think it's between Miami and Georgia," he said. "He's starting to like the secondary coach at Georgia a lot but he still likes Miami too."
