Tuesday is going to be a big day for Wyatt Cook.
"I'll be making my decision sometime tomorrow afternoon or evening," said the Owings Mills (Md.) McDonogh 2015 linebacker. "I am going to call the coaches and then probably announce it on twitter or on facebook."
"Travel time, the money situation, how they (my family) will get to games-will they even be able to get to games. All play a part (in my decision)-what fits with the whole family.
Purdue will be the school freshest in his mind, Cook took a visit to West Lafayette this weekend. The Boilermakers were already in his top three before even making a trip up, and after the visit Purdue cemented itself as a contender.
"The people, the coaches, they were all great," said Cook. "They talked about everything that is going on in the Purdue world-the sports world, academic world-what all the people are going through; how hard people are working and things like that.
They are in the Big Ten, and I've always heard great things about Purdue, and I know people that have been there. I was pretty excited (before the visit), and then after I visited it was just even better. "
Purdue isn't the only Big Ten school Cook is considering. Maryland is also a school Cook is heavily interested in. The Terps do already have two linebackers committed in this class, however, Cook says the staff are still showing support.
"The coaches have always supported me," he said. "They said they would have a spot for me. They were one of the first schools to really push for me. And I know a couple of guys from McDonogh there. It's my hometown school.
"It's been like a dream to play in the Big Ten since I was a little boy. So now that I have the opportunity it's kind of surreal. "
Although intrigued at the prospect in playing in the Big Ten conference, Cook says the ACC is also the home of "good football" and is very interested in Virginia.
"Just how beautiful the school was and just how awesome the coaches were. I really like Virginia, it is a great school. I think the football team is up and coming and they have a lot of young players. I think they are going to have a surprising year this year. I am pretty excited about it. "
Cook is also very excited at putting an end to his recruitment and choosing his future home. But before he makes a call to the coaches there is another chat he is eager to have.
"I have to sit down with my family tonight; we are all going to sit down and talk about it."
