Cooks lands another impressive offer

Brandin Cooks has picked up another big offer but the Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln wide receiver said Washington is still his leader and he plans to visit with the Huskies sometime this month.
Boise State is the newest offer for Cooks, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound prospect who was arguably the top receiver at the recent Palo Alto NIKE Camp, and he said it's definitely something to consider.
There are preliminary plans to visit Washington, Boise State, UCLA and Oregon State in June before making a commitment.
"That's an interesting offer," Cooks said. "Boise state is a great school, it has a great program, so that's a pretty big offer. They've been talking to me for quite a time, they've been recruiting me and then they came to see me work out and they really like my routes so they went back to the office and have now offered me.
"Washington is still the leader but I have to keep my options wide open. Boise State is a huge offer, they're coming up, they're rising just like Washington is rising so Washington is still my No. 1."
It could come down to the unofficial visits this summer for Cooks to make his decision but Washington has long been considered his frontrunner and there's no reason to think the Northern California receiver still doesn't favor the Huskies. Boise State is intriguing but Washington is still the team to beat.
Before a commitment, though, Cooks wants to take some trips just to make sure he's making the right decision. He said UCLA, Cal and USC have not offered yet but all three Pac-10 schools are showing interest.
Arizona, Boise State, Cal Poly, Nevada, Oregon State, UNLV, Washington and Washington State are on Cooks' offer sheet.
"It's going to come down to when I visit these schools," Cooks said. "I want to go around and visit these schools and when I visit their school and come home I'm going to put it all on the table and that's when I'll feel like I'll end up committing."
