Demarco Cobbs spends more time in Texas

Tulsa Central High School star Demarco Cobbs spent the last several days in the Lone Star State. This time, he was here to showcase his skills at the U.S. Army All-American Combine and to watch the All-Star game. Burnt Orange Beat spoke with Cobbs on his way back to Tulsa.

One of the nation's top players and almost certainly the top junior in Oklahoma, Demarco Cobbs, traveled to San Antonio to ring in the New Year. Cobbs was invited to the U.S. Army All-American Combine that is in conjunction with the bowl game.

Cobbs checked in at 6 foot 2 inches and 198 pounds. He was not sure of his forty time, as the test results are not shared with the participants. That did not keep Cobbs from getting an idea of his results.

"From their expressions, it seemed like I must have done pretty well," said Cobbs.

In one on one drills in San Antonio, Cobbs worked primarily at wide receiver. Cobbs primarily played quarterback for Central as a junior, but had snaps at wide receiver, free safety, punt returner and kickoff returner. Despite not playing the position, he put on a quite a show.

"To be honest, not too many corners could hold me," Cobbs said.

If college coaches are any indication, Cobbs has done more than pretty well. Cobbs expects that he will be offered by Texas when he attends the first Junior Day in Austin on February 8. Cobbs currently holds offers from Arkansas, Texas Tech, Tulsa, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

"I am definitely going down for that," Cobbs said of the Texas Junior Day. "Texas is pretty high on my list," added Cobbs. Cobbs did reiterate that he is still open. "I am excited about the entire recruiting process."

Since Cobbs has not spent as much time at wide receiver, he took the opportunity in San Antonio to study one of the best senior wide receivers in the country, Scout.com's #2 WR Reuben Randle of Bastrop, Louisiana. In addition, Cobbs said he has modeled his game after a former Longhorn receiver.

"I'd say Limus Sweed. We are similar in size (when he was in high school) and he plays really big and physical," said Cobbs.

Cobbs is looking into attending the NIKE camp in Dallas, and several college camps this summer as the opportunities present themselves.
