When you're one of the best players in Georgia, you expect the big offers to come right and left. But one school hadn't offered strongside defensive end Richard Cook of Washington (Ga.) Wilkes until today.
None other than Florida State.
"They called yesterday and then sent me a letter today saying they were offering," Cook, who is 6-foot-4 and 265 pounds, said.
"I was pretty excited. They didn't offer me at first, but when they called they said they liked what they saw."
No the question is whether or not he likes what he sees from FSU to push UGA out of the top spot.
"It really doesn't," Cook said. "I'm still liking Georgia a lot. They called me yesterday, and I missed it. But I saw it on caller-id. I was up there at the game on Saturday and it was an incredible atmosphere."
Cook said Auburn also called and his for sure visits at this point are going to be to UGA, FSU and Auburn. After that it's up in the air between teams like Maryland, Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Cook opened his season in a big way - scoring two touchdowns in Wilkes' 22-0 victory. He scored on a fumble recovery that he ran back 27 yards and also reached the end zone from running back.
Yes, that's right, he also plays running back.
"I just rumble over people," he said.
