Athlete Drew Cook decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and player football for Iowa as he committed to the Hawkeyes on Wednesday evening. Cook, a 3-star athlete, is rated as the 60th best athlete in the nation for the class of 2015.
Cook’s father Marv Cook played tight end at Iowa and earned all-American status before enduring a seven-year NFL career.
The younger cook stands at 6-5, 205 pounds and played quarterback in high school, but is projected to move to tight end once arriving at Iowa considering the Hawkeyes have already signed a quarterback in the 2014 class in Tyler Wiegers. As a quarterback this past season, Cook threw for over 2,500 yards and 22 touchdowns.
The Iowa City, IA native is extremely versatile and will be able to make a smooth transition to either tight end or another position because of his athleticism and intangibles.
Cook becomes just the third commitment for the Hawkeyes for the class of 2015 as he joins follow 3-stars Jack Beneventi and Jacob Newborg. Beneventi is a pro-style quarterback while Newborg plays offensive guard.
The Hawkeyes currently have the No. 31 overall class in the nation and the sixth-best class in the Big 10.
