Recruiting: Cobbs Is Picking Up Offers

Wide receiver prospect DeMarco Cobbs of Tulsa (Central), Okla., attended Oklahoma State's Junior Day a few weeks ago and said the Cowboys had his attention with the west end zone facilities and the friendliness and attitude of the coaching staff. They may still have some of Cobbs' attention but they have more competition for it.

Cobbs has scholarship offers from Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Tulsa, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Missouri, and Kansas. Cobbs has said he was a Texas fan growing up and now he has an offer from the Longhorns and also from LSU. He said he still hears from Southern Cal.

Cobbs put up impressive numbers while playing quarterback for the Central Braves in 2008 (1,158 passing yards and 10 touchdowns, while rushing for 1,113 yards and 20 TDs). It is expected that his 6-2, 201-pound frame right now will make for a teriffic wide receiver in college.

Cobbs, who said he will run the 100, 200, and 400 meters in track as well as the 4X400 relay, runs a 4.48 in the forty. He has a 280-pound bench press and a max of 400 pounds in the squat. He also has a 32-inch vertical jump.

Needless to say he is very talented. Cobbs is preparing himself for college, both physically, athletically, and academically.

"I want to major in criminal justice," said Cobbs, talking academics. "I want to become an FBI agent when I'm done playing football."

He plans on camping in Florida at a camp that is tied to the Under Armour All-American Game, so you can expect to see Cobbs in that game next season. As for what school you will see him at in the summer of 2010, he has an idea on what he is looking for.

"You have to start with academics and that will be the first area I am looking at," said Cobbs. "Then it will be on the field and I am looking for a place where I can get on the field and have a chance to start as a true freshman. I have to be able to trust the coaches. They need to be great people."

Cobbs has plenty of options. You can expect his recruitment to take a while as Cobbs hints he wants to really look close and he wants to be sure he is picking the best school for him.
