2017 defensive end, Antoine Cook of McKeesport, Penn. says he is hoping the Toledo Rockets pull the trigger on an offer. Cook, who has been receiving interest from the Rockets for several months now, says he would love to play collegiate football in Northwest Ohio.
"I'm interested in Toledo and I'm really hoping the pull the trigger and offer," Cook told us.
As of right now, Cook has offers from Kent State, Maine, Robert Morris, Youngstown State as well as a few other smaller schools but the Rockets have shown a lot of promise for Cook.
"I feel I am very close to that offer," he said, "It would mean a lot to me, an offer would help me become a better person, knowing I have an opportunity for a degree and a bright future (at Toledo)," Cook added.
The six-foot, three-inch, 225-pound defensive end is a very fundamental tackler on the defensive side of the ball and comes from a very notable McKeesport High School football program in Western Pennsylvania.
As far as how long he'd like to wait to make a decision, Cook says there's a chance he could be an instant commitment for the Rockets, if they were to offer.
"I have had a lot of interest in Toledo from the start, so they'd definitely be very high on the list for me," Cook stated, "I would be extremely interested."
The Rockets have gone to Western and Central Pennsylvania for several prior players, including Terry Swanson, Ronnie Jones, Corey Jones, and several others. Antoine Cook, if offered, could be next. Toledo Scout will keep you posted on the latest from his recruitment.
