The best player in the state of Oklahoma has known what school he was going to choose for sometime.
Tulsa Central’s Demarco Cobbs, rated as the No. 1 athlete in Oklahoma and a five star prospect by Scout.com, made his intentions official Sunday evening.
“The University of Tennessee baby,” Cobbs told views on a local television station in Tulsa. “I loved interacting with their players and coaches when I took an unofficial visit there. They have great academics and great academic support for their athletes there. It just felt like I was a home there.”
According to Cobbs, he almost committed to the Vols during his visit there during fall football camp.
“I knew then that’s where I was going,” Cobbs said. “After that visit I was certain that Tennessee was my choice. I decided to wait for a month to make sure I wasn’t rushing into a decision that I might regret. I have known for a while that I was going to be a Vol.”
With 41 official offers in hand, Cobbs said his three finalists were Tennessee, Alabama and LSU.
As of Sunday evening after the addition of Cobbs to the Tennessee recruiting class, the 2010 Volunteer Class is currently ranked by Scout.com as the No. 1 recruiting class in the SEC and the No. 3 overall class in the nation.
