Cook, who plays both wide receiver and defensive back, could see action on either side of the ball in college. So far this year, he has 676 combined rushing/receiving yard,s and has scored six times. Defensively, he has been even better, recording almost 70 tackles and 14 1/2 sacks in six games.
Cook had received interest from a number of schools, including Alabama, Michigan State, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Purdue. However, his early choice of Cincinnati seemed firm until a recent visit to West Virginia swayed him.
