Virginia is at it again. The Cavaliers have landed their third commitment in four days. The Virginia commit total now stands at 11. Who is the newest member of Virginia’s 2005 class?
Lynchburg (Va.) Heritage cornerback Chris Cook has become the eleventh verbal commitment to Virginia’s 2005 class. Cook, a standout athlete, chose Virginia over an offer from Virginia Tech and growing interest from Tennessee, Nebraska, NC State, and West Virginia.
“I committed to Virginia. I just feel that it is the perfect fit for me. There are no other schools that interest me as much as Virginia,” said the 6-foot-3, 192-pound defensive back who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds.
Cook recently visited Virginia for their spring game and participated in the NIKE Camp at Virginia the next day.
“I had a really good visit to Virginia and it really cemented what I already knew. The coaches there are great. I was recruited by Mike Groh early on and then Coach Poindexter took over. Virginia is close to my home and just feels like home. I am completely committed to Virginia.”
Cook has done it all for Heritage over the last two seasons. He has played wide receiver, running back, and cornerback. Cornerback will be Cook’s primary position for Cavaliers and he racked up over 50 tackles and had eight interceptions to prove it.
“I try to model my game after Rod Woodson and Charles Woodson. Both of those guys are people that have great athletic ability. I love to watch each of those players and take parts of their game.”
Cook currently has a 3.2 GPA.
