Cobbs Looking at USC

Four-star wide receiver DeMarco Cobbs from Central High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma recently cut his list down to ten, and while he hasn't officially named a leader, he let us know one school that could occupy the top spot. Look inside for the details.

Tulsa (OK) Central HS wide receiver DeMarco Cobbs is one of the most highly sought after players in the 2010 recruiting class with 30 scholarship offers already in hand, and while he has received a lot of attention during the recruiting process, the dynamic playmaker has taken it all in stride.

"Everything has been good. It's not stressful or anything; I am just enjoying the recruiting process," Cobbs said. "It feels good. I feel wanted.

"I worked hard for it and it's a dream come true. I have always wanted to be a highly recruited player coming out of high school."

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound wide receiver recently trimmed his list to ten with USC, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Arizona, Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma and Auburn making the cut.

Cobbs hasn't yet named an official leader, but he let us know that if he did, it would be the USC Trojans.

"I don't have a leader but if I did have a leader it would be USC," he said. "They are like my No.1 school right now.

"Just from talking to the coaches and getting to know them, they seem pretty cool. I haven't met them in person or anything but I plan on going out there for the Rising Stars Camp, so I will get to see how they coach and everything."

The two USC coaches that he has gotten to know during the recruiting process are John Morton and Ken Norton Jr..

"I am talking with Coach Morton and Coach Norton. Coach Norton seems like a pretty cool, down to earth guy," Cobbs said. "Just talking to him, he is a very exciting, energetic person."

So what is it about USC that stands out for Cobbs?

"They have big-time players that they put out every year, they are in the hunt for the national championship and also USC is a private school and known for academics too."

Cobbs, who is ranked as Scout.com's No.3 wide receiver, grew up watching the Trojans and has been impressed with the players that they have produced.

"I grew up watching USC and big-time players like Carson Palmer, Mike Williams, Dwayne Jarrett and Reggie Bush," he said. "I grew up watching all of them."

While Cobbs lives in Oklahoma, he insists that distance won't be a factor in his decision because he has family in Los Angeles and his aunt graduated from USC.

"I have family out there so it would be a plus," he said. "I have an aunt in Compton, an aunt in Pasadena and a lot of cousins out there. Location won't be a factor in my decision."

Cobbs will attend USC's Rising Stars Camp in June.
