3-star Maryland linebacker Wyatt Cook commits to Purdue

247sports

Maryland loses an in-state kid to a new conference rival.

Three-star in-state linebacker Wyatt Cook has ended Maryland's recent string of successes on the recruiting trail, committing to Purdue. The prospect announced his decision on Twitter Tuesday, choosing the Boilermakers over the Terps and Virginia.

Cook, listed at 6'3" and 225 pounds, attends the McDonogh School and would have continued the pipeline that brought the likes of Darrius Heyward-Bey, Roman Braglio, Josh Woods and Ellis McKennie to College Park. He is rated a three-star recruit by the 247sports composite, ranking as the 39th-best inside linebacker in the nation and the 24th-best player in the state of Maryland.

Cook recently took a visit to Purdue before making his decision. Maryland already has two commitments at linebacker in three-star prospects Gus Little and Brett Zanotto, who are both currently listed at inside linebacker (although we project Zanotto to move to the outside in College Park). The crowd at the position combined with an apparently successful trip to the Purdue campus may have factored into the decision.
