Texas ATH has handful of offers

Dallas Bishop Dunne is not one of the traditional private school powers in the state of Texas. However, the Falcons have a strong senior class led by Texas defensive tackle commit Alex Norman as well as wide receiver Braelon Roberts.
There is another prospect at the school receiving attention of his own though. Thomas Cook does a little bit of everything for Bishop Dunne and the 5-foot-10, 175-pound athlete has seen several offers come his way.
"I have a couple of offers," Cook said. "Louisiana Tech has offered me, Oklahoma State has offered me, Air Force has offered me and I think Rice has offered me. They offered towards the end of the school year while I was in track season. They came out and watched our spring practice."
Cook plays a number of positions for his high school and could end up at a couple of different spots at the next level.
"Most of them are recruiting me at running back," he said, "but Oklahoma State wants me at cornerback. I haven't really had a chance to talk to them, though. I just know the coach talked to my coach."
Cook has not actually had the chance to speak at length with many of the coaches recruiting him and he has developed the closest bond with a school that has yet to offer.
"I haven't really talked to all that many coaches very much," he said. "I've talked to UTEP and North Texas a lot. With North Texas, coach (Justin) Gaines is the one I talk to a lot."
The speedy athlete had a chance to visit a couple of schools over the summer.
"I went to a couple of camps," Cook said. "I went to North Texas, Texas State and UTEP camps. They were great. I had a lot of fun there. All of them talked a lot about offering me then but I don't know."
Cook has not had much a chance to focus on the recruiting process so it should come as no surprise that he does not have a list of favorites yet.
"There's nobody that's really standing out right now to me," he said. "I've just been talking to North Texas a lot, I know that."
Cook played running back and receiver on offense a year ago, scoring five touchdowns. He also intercepted two passes on defense and returned a kickoff for a touchdown. He was a second-team all-district selection as an athlete on offense.
