Claremont (Calif.) linebacker Isaiah Cook took his first official visit of the year this past weekend to Colorado State. The Rams did a nice job with the talented athlete but three more trips remain before it’s decision time.
Cook, 6-1, 185 pounds may look a bit undersized for the linebacker position but he can definitely bring it. Cook is one of the hardest hitting ‘backers in the West region and has a non-stop motor to go with it. He clocked a 4.20 in the shuttle at the SoCal Nike Camp and also jumped 30 inches in the vertical.
“Colorado State was pretty cool,” Cook said. “It’s a football program that competes for the league championship every year. The facilities were cool and I really like their defense. We watched film and I think I would fit in well in their system. They like smaller linebacker who can run and hit. I also enjoyed watching their practice and seeing how intense they play. That defense flies around pretty good.
"This weekend (Dec. 12), I have a visit set with Kansas State, Fresno State is (Dec. 19) and Oregon State is (Jan. 9). Colorado State and Oregon State have already come in for home visits and I’m expecting the other two to come in as well. I want to take the rest of my trips before I make my decision. It could be tempting to commit early but I definitely want to take that visit to Oregon State before I announce anything."
