Suwanne (Ga.) North Gwinnett wide receiver Jared Cook is one of the fastest rising players in the Southeast right now. He recently picked up his first scholarship offer from an SEC school and now he has his second offer in hand.
“I recently got offered by Central Michigan and I already have the one from Mississippi State,” Cook said. “I am starting to hear a lot from a lot of schools right now. Interest has really been picking up a lot lately.”
Cook measured in at the NIKE camp in Atlanta at 6-foot-5, 202 pounds. He also ran a head turning 4.6 second 40-yard dash. Cook is also a stand out on the basketball court where he has picked up three scholarship offers.
“Last weekend I went to the Arkansas-Auburn game last weekend,” Cook said. “This weekend I think I am going to go to the Mississippi State game. It was a really good game, Auburn really took it to them. I got to talk to coach Dunn at the game and all. Auburn has been recruiting me really hard lately.”
Cook runs the shuttle in 4.5 seconds and has a 35-inch vertical jump and does 11 reps on the bench press. He could project as a wide receiver, tight end, safety or linebacker on the college level.
“My top five right now are Mississippi State, Auburn, Georgia, Western Michigan and Clemson,” Cook said.
