"He has good grades and will be a qualifier," Dumont said. "He has a strong arm and is one of our team captains as a junior. He is also a tremendous punter. His best qualities are probably his good vision and arm strength. He runs a 4.6, so he is fast too."
The 6-foot-7, 205-pound Cook attended a number of summer camps and has been on campus for a couple of unofficial visits this year. He is already hearing from several major programs through the mail.
"He has visited A&M and Texas a couple of times on unofficial visits where he got to talk to some of the coaches," Dumont said. "He went to the TCU camp this summer. He went to A&M and Texas as well. He is getting a lot of mail from all the Big 12 schools."
Did Cook enjoy his visits in Austin?
"Yes, if he had a choice to go anywhere that would be his first choice," Dumont said.
Cook has led Rice Consolidated High School to a 6-1 record through seven games this year. He has thrown for 1,222 yards with 16 touchdown passes.
