In-Conference Switch

According to a published report in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, defensive back/wideout Darwin Cook made a school change on Thursday.

Cook, who committed to the University of Cincinnati over the summer, made a switch this week when he chose West Virginia. The move between Big East foes could serve as a focal point to highlight the burgeoning competition between the two schools, both on the field and in the recruiting game.

Cook, who plays both wide receiver and defensive back, could see action on either side of the ball in college. So far this year, he has 676 combined rushing/receiving yard,s and has scored six times. Defensively, he has been even better, recording almost 70 tackles and 14 1/2 sacks in six games.

Cook had received interest from a number of schools, including Alabama, Michigan State, Wisconsin, West Virginia and Purdue. However, his early choice of Cincinnati seemed firm until a recent visit to West Virginia swayed him.

Current WVU basketball guard Will Thomas is a product of Shaw High School, as is all-time Mountaineer football great Darryl Talley.
