Four-star DE enjoys FSU visit

Four-star Tignall (Ga.) defensive end
Richard Cook says his first official visit left a strong
impression.
"I had a real good trip down to Florida State," he
said. "I don't think it could have been any better. I liked the town and the
coaches and the players a lot. They were fun to be around. Darnell Dockett
and Lorenzo Booker were my hosts. We just got a chance to chill out and eat
together and play some video games, stuff like that. It gave me a good idea
of what it would be like off the field if I went to play there."
Cook (6-4, 265, 4.6) is a member of the
Rivals100 team and the No. 6 strongside defensive end in the nation.
He also has official visits set up for the rest of his top five: Georgia
(12/13), Auburn (1/10), Tennessee (1/17) and Maryland (1/24).
"Florida State was pretty good, but I don't have a
favorite right now," he said. "I want to see how the rest of these go
first."
Auburn and Florida were in the Cook home for in-home
visits Sunday.
Cook finished his senior season with 75 tackles and
eight sacks for Washington-Wilkes (9-3).
