One of Oklahoma’s top athletes had heard a lot about a place called Rocky Top, about the Smoky Mountains and the traditions of the University of Tennessee.
Tulsa’s DeMarco Cobbs was expecting his trip to be good, he admitted to InsideTennessee.com Sunday morning, that the trip was ended up being better than he expected it to be.
“It was really cool,” Cobbs said. “I really enjoyed myself a lot. I knew coming into the visit it was going to be good, I didn’t expect to be as great as it was. It was definitely better than I expected it to be.”
So much that when asked about his top favorites, Cobbs had this response.
“Tennessee is definitely one of my top favorites,” Cobbs said. “My top six right now are Tennessee, Alabama, LSU, Florida, Oklahoma and Georgia.”
One thing that stood out to Cobbs was Lane Kiffin and the incredible coaching staff he has assembled in Knoxville.
“I really like the fact that Coach Kiffin is so young, but at the same time is so on top of his game,” Cobbs explained. “It appears that he really relates to his players well. I got the opportunity to talk to several of the current players.”
Cobbs is also impressed with the entire coaching staff.
“When you look at all their experience it’s incredible,” Cobbs said. “Everyone is so high energy and excited about being at the University of Tennessee.”
Cobbs wasn’t pressured into making a decision, a fact that the talented athlete appreciated.
“They just made sure I knew how important I was to them and their recruiting class,” Cobbs said. “They really made me feel comfortable and at home.”
Cobbs is uncertain when he might make a decision.
“It could happen anytime,” Cobbs said. “I just want to make sure I make the right decision, I think I will know when the time is right.”
Cobbs is listed at 6-foot-2, 205-pounds, but appears much closer to the 6-foot-4 range. He is rated by Scout.com as the No. 7 over wide receiver in the country and is a four star prospect.
