Demarco Cobbs Commits to Tennessee
TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Central's Demarco Cobbs, the state's top ranked prospect, made a verbal commitment to the University of Tennessee during the Oklahoma Sports Blitz on Sunday night.
Cobbs, who had 41 scholarship offers, chose Tennessee over LSU and Alabama.
The 6-2, 200-pound quarterback will play wide receiver for the Volunteers. Cobbs is near the top of several recruiting database lists. Scout.com ranks him as the seventh-best wide receiver in the country and Rivals.com ranks him as the eighth-best athlete in the country.
Cobbs is a threat for Central on the ground and through the air. Through two games this year, he has five rushing touchdowns, three passing touchdowns, and one kickoff return for a score. In 2008, he rolled up over 1,000 yards passing, 1000 yards rushing, and 33 touchdowns
Cobbs is not the first player from the state of Oklahoma to suit up for Tennessee. Robert Meachem, who was the state's top player in 2003, played for the Volunteers and was the New Orleans Saints first round draft pick in 2007.
Oklahoma City Millwood's Gerald Jones is a junior wide receiver for Tennessee, Tulsa Union's Chase Nelson is a junior defensive lineman and Midwest City Carl Albert's David Oku is a freshman running back.
