Cobbs Adding Major Offers

Major college programs are turning up the heat on Tulsa athlete Demarco Cobbs and things got even more interesting on Friday when he pulled in an offer from the second ranked team in the Country.

Things are starting to heat up around Demarco Cobbs, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete from Central High in Tulsa, Okla and he got his first offer when the hometown team stepped up to the plate with his very first scholarship.

"My first offer was from Tulsa," Cobbs said. "It was a surprise. I did not get a letter from them or anything. They just saw my film and they said that they wanted to offer me. I just worked hard this season and it paid off."

Cobbs was one of the top underclassmen during one of the sessions of Arkansas' summer camp, but despite his solid performance in front of the U-of-A staff it was still somewhat of a surprise when the Hogs offered next.

"It means a lot," Cobbs said of the Arkansas offer. "The SEC is one of the toughest conferences in America."

"That was a surprise too, because I have not been talking to them since I was up there at their camp this summer. They just saw my film and they told me that they wanted to offer me asap."

Cobbs would find out some more major news when the second ranked team in the country would follow with his third official scholarship offer.

"Texas Tech officially offered DeMarco," Central Head Coach Corey Russell informed. "So that makes Tulsa, Arkansas, and Texas Tech."

It is rare that the Texas Longhorns recruit out of state, but Cobbs is already receiving heavy interest from the Horns and he has been invited to Austin for an unofficial visit to see the Texas/Texas A&M game.

"Texas is on him like crazy," Russell added.

After watching that tilt on Thanksgiving Day the talented junior will be heading to Lubbock to watch the Red Raiders play their final conference game against Baylor.

Cobbs is also receiving interest from schools like Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, UCLA, Auburn, LSU, Oklahoma State, Miami (FL), Kansas, and Kansas State, and is not ready to name any leaders at this point in the process.

"I am open right now. I am open to every school for right now," Cobbs admitted.

With his size, speed, and versatility Cobbs could possibly play receiver or safety in college.

"I want to play receiver, but when it comes down to it I will play anywhere that the coaches want me to play."
