Caring Is Creepy: Have a Seat Drew Cook
He's a legacy. Cook's dad is former Iowa tight end and potential college football hall of famer Marv Cook, who played for the Hawkeyes during Kirk Ferentz's stint as an offensive line coach under Hayden Fry. Ferentz loves Marv Cook. He mentions the guy all the time, to the point that Cook was in the conversation for an assistant position when Iowa's staff was overhauled two years ago.
COMPARABLE. Dad's a former Hawk? Kid is a great QB in the Iowa City area? Obviously, you have to go with A.J. Derby. The difference, according to recruiting sites, Cook is open to a new position. It also appears he'll get a shot at QB to start his career.
