UVa FB Camp News And Notes

Speedy DB Claims UVa Offer

Malcolm Cook has gone under the radar in terms of coverage of the state of Virginia’s class of 2013. But Cook claims offers from N.C. State, Penn State and UVa, and today he looked the part of a major FBS prospect at Virginia’s one-day camp. In the morning testing session, the Richmond native posted two excellent times in the 40-yard dash, running a 4.4-flat and a 4.41. The 6’1″, 198-pound rising senior carried his positive play into the afternoon, when he worked out at strong safety, free safety and wide receiver.

“I felt I did great today,” a smiling Cook said shortly after the camp.

Cook attended Armstrong High School in Richmond for the first three years of his high school career. He made a splash as a freshman, tallying over 900 yards (combined rushing and receiving) and scoring 12 total touchdowns. In his time at Armstrong, he has played quarterback, running back, wide and slot receiver, cornerback and safety. Mike London, who Cook says offered him a scholarship back in February, likes him as a safety.

“I think I could play defense or offense in college, but I really like defense. That’s what I really like,” Cook said.
