Posted April 20th, 2017

Houston Lamar’s Anthony Cook released his top 10 Thursday on Twitter and it included the Longhorns. Cook, who is a five-star cornerback ranked No. 1 on the Fabulous 55, holds 35 offers and is the No. 9 player in the country, per 247Sports Composite. Texas and Baylor are the only two in-state schools in the running.

The 6-foot-1, 168-pound cornerback is one of three Houston Lamar juniors holding a Texas offer. The Longhorns also want to sign wide receiver Al’Vonte Woodard and fellow cornerback D’Shawn Jamsion out of Lamar. Current starting cornerback, Holton Hill, is a Houston Lamar grad.
