Cook is from Vista Murrieta High in Southern California and is good friends with fellow BYU OLB commit Fred Warner. At 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, Cook is projected to play outside linebacker while at BYU.

Cook held offers from as many as 16 programs at the time of his commitment, including offers from Washington State, Hawaii, Boise State, Arizona and Miami (Fla.) according to scout.com.

Cook is LDS and plans to serve a mission. He becomes BYU's 11th commitment for 2014, seven of which are defensive prospects. The Deseret News will have more on Cook and his commitment when he becomes available for comment.
