2023 WR Johntay Cook


Recommended Posts

This is the kid that was shitting on every school’s trophy case during his visits right? I actually thought that was funny. You can tell he has a big personality and he knows how to create social media buzz for himself. He’ll do well with NIL here. Great get.

On3’s high school scouting summary

Smooth-moving receiver who is one of the better route-runners in the 2023 cycle. Shows the ability to tempo and toggle speeds within his routes. Can win at all levels of the field. Has long arms with a 6-foot-4 wing-span at 5-foot-11.5. The length helps create a large catch radius. Productive and efficient as a junior while facing top competition at one of the top talent-producing high school programs in Texas. Scored 18 touchdowns on just 38 receptions as a junior. Will need to continue improving on his reliability as a pass-catcher and eliminate concentration drops.

Excerpt from the Recruiting Notebook

Strengths: Well-proportioned athlete with room to add in upper and lower body. Excellent acceleration off the line with no false steps. Excellent balance with very little deceleration on change of direction. Effective against off, rolled up and press coverages.  Is on the defender quickly. Eye and pad level are excellent on fakes and double moves. Great route runner. Fluid in and out of his cuts and crisp body control. Exceptional change of direction and short-area quickness. Creates separation naturally and obviously well-coached on setting up defenders. Takes advantage of leverage repeatedly. Catching motion starts with soft hands away from his body and secures the ball quickly. Tracks the ball really well and catching motion is compact and quick enough to not give away the ball’s arrival to the defender. Competes for 50/50 balls with good explosion. Runs a variety of pass routes to all depths and zones. Experienced at both outside and inside positions in a well-coordinated and reasonably complex offense.  Will make significant yards after catch and is a threat from anywhere.

Areas for Improvement: Teammate film on run plays shows very little blocking. Some of this is by design to sell pass. Will need college S&C
