There's another in-state cornerback on the Texas Longhorns recruiting radar after head coach Charlie Strong and staff offered Waco La Vega's Parrish Cobb during a Friday visit to Austin.
Offered by THE University of Texas !!— P.Cobb (@PctheDb4) April 4, 2015
A visitor for the late February Junior Day, Cobb was on campus with close friend Eric Cuffee, the Waco cornerback who also holds a Texas offer and recently picked up an invite to The Opening after a strong performance at the Dallas The Opening regional camp back in March. It's not outside the realm of possibility that the two could end up playing together in college.
The two had a chance to pose for a picture with television analyst Lou Holtz, Strong's former boss at South Carolina who spoke to the team on Friday:
The 5'11, 176-pound Cobb is a consensus three-star prospect rated as the No. 649 prospect overall, the No. 63 cornerback, and the No. 87 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. With 11 offers, Cobb has the opportunity to play at Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, Minnesota, and Oklahoma, among others.
The early perceived leader is Baylor, which holds all three of the predictions in his 247Sports Crystal Ball.
In Dallas, Cobb put up good testing numbers, running a 4.62 40, a 4.15 shuttle, and a 32.1-inch vertical leap. The shuttle time in particularly was highly impressive. On the field for La Vega last fall, he was a playmaker in all three phases returning kicks, intercepting passes, and scoring touchdowns as a wide receiver.
