DB Cook enjoys official visit to Bama

By Greg Ostendorf

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Over the weekend, in-state cornerback Jonathan Cook made his first trip to the University of Alabama since he committed to the Crimson Tide last month. It was Cook’s official visit, and he already can’t wait to get back to Tuscaloosa.

“It was good,” Cook said. “I had a lot of fun. I love Tuscaloosa. I didn’t even really want to leave.

“I just hung out with the players. We ate at Coach [Nick] Saban’s house. We ate at a restaurant (Chuck’s), and when we walked in, everybody started clapping for us. That was pretty cool.”

On his visit, Cook hung out with all the other Alabama commitments including ArDarius Stewart and Tim Williams. He also talked with ESPN 150 defensive tackle Dee Liner, who was on his official visit. Liner decommitted from Auburn on Monday.

“I just told him that he needs to come to Alabama because I was coming,” Cook said. “I’ve known him since we played at the all-star game. He told me he’s coming to Bama, but I didn’t know he decommitted.”

Cook also met with Alabama’s new defensive backs coach Greg Brown on the trip. He’s looking forward to playing for him when he gets to UA.
