Fork Union's Malcolm Cook Commits to Virginia

Virginia landed their 16th commitment for the 2013 class late Saturday night, when Fork Union Military Academy Safety Malcolm Cook committed to the Cavaliers. Cook participated in today's one-day camp on Grounds, and obviously made an impression on Mike London and the staff. The FUMA Safety earned the Virginia offer today, and pulled the trigger really quickly. Cook, like fellow UVA Safety commit Tim Harris, is a Richmond native. Cook is transferring from Armstrong High to Fork Union for the upcoming school year. At Armstrong, Cook played Quarterback, and that was probably out of necessity, as the Wildcats only won 1 game last year.

Malcolm Cook is somewhat of an unknown commodity at this point. Though it's clear from his camp performance, and the fact that the staff was willing to offer him with the current scholarship crunch, that Cook can play. According to 247sports' Jamie Oakes, who was on hand at today's camp, Cook ran a 4.40 and 4.41 in the 40 yard dash, on a notoriously slow surface at UVA. That's pretty impressive. With Cook's commitment, it means that Virginia is almost certainly done at Defensive Back for 2013. Cook, along with Tim Harris, Hipolito Corporan and Kirk Garner make up a really solid group of D-Backs for this cycle. It also goes without saying that space is getting even tighter. Space will always be available for guys like Wyatt Teller and Taquan Mizzell, but for others, the clock is certainly ticking.
