Hook now up to four offers

Lake Worth (Fla.) cornerback Alex Hook saw his offer list double on Tuesday.
"Eastern Michigan and Memphis both offered me today," Hook said. "Georgia State and Bowling Green have also offered me. So I am at four."
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound prospect is hearing different pitches from different schools with regards to what position they would want him to line up at if he were to opt for their university.
"Georgia State and Memphis said they were offering me as an athlete while Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan were offering me as a cornerback," Hook said.
In his conversations with the different staffs, Hook said the talk from the Memphis Tigers' staff stood out.
"Memphis' coach said they are really trying to rebuild their program," Hook said. "He said that if I wanted to go there, then I would have a chance to start for four years. He said I could help them turn that program around over there."
In addition to his offers, Hook is also receiving a good deal of attention from Boston College, Georgia Tech, and others.
This summer, Hook said he hopes to camp at a few schools, including those that have offered, but he has yet to schedule any of those trips. When he does make his way on campus, he is looking at how it will benefit him away from the football field.
"I want a good education, something I can fall back on if football doesn't work out," Hook said. "Whatever school offers me that, I am going to select them."
As a junior, Hook recorded 47 tackles, broke up 12 passes, and nabbed four interceptions.
