Jameel Cook flips from Maryland to Indiana

One of the Terps' two Texas commits is headed to a division rival.

Maryland has officially lost a long-time commitment from their 2015 class, as three-star Texas safety Jameel Cook has flipped to Indiana, the prospect announced on Twitter. Cook took an official visit to Bloomington on the final weekend before Signing Day, forcing a decommitment from the Terps (per Randy Edsall's policy). As expected, he has decided to latch on with the Hoosiers.

From the Houston area, Cook first received an offer from Maryland last February, following Colorado and Missouri. He later received offers from Arizona State, Utah and Kentucky, among others, but pledged to the Terps in late June. He took an unofficial visit shortly after, and was not really heard from again until news came out he would be visiting Indiana.

It's the exact same turn of events that occurred with three-star Virginia athlete Mike Majette, who committed to Maryland before taking a visit to the Hoosiers and committing there (following the Terps' withdrawal of his offer). Indiana also grabbed a commitment from DeMatha linebacker Tyler Green, once committed to Ohio State.

Maryland may attempt to add another defensive back to the class to help mitigate the loss of Cook, but it may be too late in the process to find a scholarship-worthy player.
