'08 Prospect Taylor Cook: Staying in Texas?

The top quarterback prospect from the Lone Star State at the U.S. Army National Combine this weekend is Rice Consolidated's Taylor Cook. He has a good frame and a lot of schools already have their eye on South-Central Texas signal caller. Cook talked to Inside Texas about his interest in staying in or around Texas.

The 6-6, 205-pound Cook mentioned Texas A&M, Texas, Northwestern, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Oklahoma as schools that have been in contact. "They're just letters, mainly," Cook said.

"The Texas schools," Cook replied when asked about the schools that he is interested in. "They all have very good programs. UT has very nice facilities. A&M has the same. They have new stuff. They have very good coaching staffs at both of those schools. TCU is a very good school. Texas Tech is a little further from where I live, but it is a nice place. They are all very nice."

Cook, who has attended camp in and taken unofficial visits to Austin and College Station, is a lanky kid with a good arm. He also has the ability to take off and use his legs to gain yardage.

"I get into the game," he said. "I read defenses pretty well. I motivate everyone else on the team. When something bad is going down, I don't really stoop to that level I guess. I just keep playing and fight through it."
