Four-Star CB Anthony Cook Talks Tom Herman

Cornerback Anthony Cook remains as one of the most heavily recruited players in the state of Texas for the class of 2018. The Houston (Texas) Lamar defensive standout is a four-star player and one of the best the state of Texas has to offer.

Checking in at 6-foot, 168-pounds, Anthony Cook is the No 1 ranked cornerback prospect in the state of Texas.  He will be a big-time target for dozens of schools over the next twelve months.  Cook talked about Texas and new head Coach Tom Herman.

“I think that it’s good that Texas has Coach Herman,” Anthony Cook said.  “I truly believe that the program will have success this year.”  Cook is not sure when he will visit Austin again, but fans should expect to see him back to spend time with the coaching staff at some point down the road.

Coverage Awareness Take

This is what a cover corner is supposed to look like. He not only has the hips and build of an elite level island corner Cook also has plus size at the position at around 6’0, a truly rare combination of skills. He is still a bit skinny but is starting to blow up frame wise as well, and that has helped him catch the eye of pretty much every top program in the nation. He has a knack for making plays on the football, and if you put up a 50-50 ball, he is going to come down with it 75% of the time. He plays against good competition and comes from a program that has been known to produce some of the best defensive backs in the state and has competed strongly at every major camp event on the national level in the off-season, proving he matches up well with receivers who are already bigger and stronger. - Greg Powers
