Wolfpack tight end Cole Cook’s younger brother was offered by NC State in early February. The offer was doubly important for the sophomore lineman because it was his first.
Case Cook (6-3, 255) was offered by Dave Doeren as an offensive tackle. That’s a position he is comfortable playing. Cook is a left tackle at Carrollton which is the same school his brother Cole attended. He is several years younger than his brother but the two are still close. Case has heard a lot about the school and he has visited for a couple of games.
Eddie Faulkner spoke with Cook several times before Doeren got on the phone with him and broke the good news.
“He just said he wanted me and he was going to offer me a scholarship to play tackle. I’ve been there a couple of times. I liked it. I think it’s nice. I like the coaches or the ones I’ve met at least. I think they’re moving in the right direction. I like the atmosphere at the games up there.”
Cook said he was very excited when he found out he had his first offer especially with it being so early. He knows that not many high school sophomores are so fortunate. He will always remember the NC State offer since it was first and that will be true no matter where he ends up. He said he will not give NC State any preferential treatment on the basis of that offer being first though.
Miami and Nebraska are two other schools that have told Cook they will be recruiting him.
Cole Cook played in every single game for the Wolfpack as a true freshman. His younger brother Case is already heavier although he’s years behind him from a physical maturation standpoint.
When Cole was a recruit he had many other offers to choose from. His brother could be even more heavily recruited with the NC State offer at such an early stage signaling just the start of things.
NOTE: Case Cook reportedly received an offer from Miami today.
