Recruiting: Is Pflugerville RB Hearing From Horns?

Pflugerville HS RB Antwan Cobb is seeing his stock rise as teams stop off in Central Texas to check him out. He spoke to Inside Texas about his recruitment and his interest in the Longhorns.

Antwan Cobb (5-10, 190, 4.48) has great vision and likes being the go to guy for the Panthers. "I'm an all-around player," Cobb said. "You can put me in a position and I'll get the job done, I'll run for that extra yard, and catch the game-winning pass. Just get me the ball."

Cobb currently holds five offers. "I have been offered by Texas A&M, UTEP, Oklahoma State, Baylor, and Nebraska," he said. "Right now I know that Nebraska will receive an official visit from me." The Lone Star State star is also hearing from Missouri, Arizona, Florida, and Purdue and they could be on the verge of offering. Also of note is that Texas Tech has shown interest in Cobb and Red Raider coaches have been to one of his practices.

Cobb has taken two unofficial visits. "I have been to Texas and Texas A&M," he said. "The Texas trip was great. I had a chance to speak to both Coach (Mack) Brown and Coach (Greg) Davis. Both of them seem like wonderful guys and they are very smart. Coach Davis has been to one of my practices and has sent me a few handwritten letters. He told me to continue to work hard throughout the spring and to keep getting better."

What is Cobb looking for in a school? "The school I choose will have good academics and a good football program," he said. "I would love the chance to play with my twin brother Antonio." Antonio plays for Pflugerville HS as well and doesn't currently hold any offers, but he is receiving interest from Missouri, Iowa, Tulsa, and Texas A&M.

Antwan has a busy schedule planned for this summer. "I plan on camping at Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and perhaps Florida as well."

Last season, Cobb helped lead Pflugerville to an 8-4 record in the rugged Texas 5A division that included a second round loss in the 5A State Playoffs. Cobb carries a 3.2 GPA and will take the SAT for the first time in June.
