Isaiah Cook is wrapping up his school year by taking two on-line classes in an effort to get approval by the NCAA Clearinghouse in time to participate in Fall camp.
His SAT score is a solid 900 and he told BeaverFootball.com that once these classes are wrapped up he should have no problem getting in.
Isaiah says the coaches are still in constant contact with him, and as a matter of fact he spoke with Nigel Burton just last week.
"He is just making sure that I'm keeping up with my lifting and school work, he's a really good guy," Cook said.
Isaiah is planning on leaving for Corvallis between the 9th and 12th of August. His roommate will either be Patrick Fuller or Bryan Payton, both of whom he recently played in an All Star game along with future Beaver Daniel Drayton.
Isaiah had an interception while playing the safety position, and says that he is still in contact with Fuller on a regular basis. Cook said that he and Fuller are holding each other accountable for keeping up with the Beaver off-season program.
Most recruiting buffs will remember that Isaiah originally committed to K-State following his recruiting trip to Corvallis. Here is the exclusive on the story behind his early commitment:
"After I got back from Corvallis, I knew I wanted to be a Beaver, but at 6 a.m. the next day the KSU staff was at my house," Cook said. "I committed to them then, but I really don't know what I was doing – I knew I wanted to be a Beaver."
A couple of days later Isaiah called the KSU coaches and told them that he had made a mistake giving them his oral commitment and that he was going to Oregon State.
There was some speculation that Cook's high school coach was steering him towards Kansas State, but Cook put that notion to rest.
"Nah, it wasn't like that at all," he said. "He told me that he thought KSU was a better fit for me, but ultimately it was my decision."
"I knew I wanted to be a Beaver."
