Quarterback Ranked 26th In Nation By "Rivals.Com"
DURHAM, N.H.-- Seventh-year University of New Hampshire head football coach Sean McDonnell announced today that quarterback Jacob Crook (Glendora, Calif.) has signed a national letter of intent to attend UNH in the fall and play for the Wildcat football program.
Crook, who is a 6-1, 200-pounder from Glendora High School, was rated the 26th-best high school quarterback in the nation by "Rivals.com". Crook had offers from several Division I colleges after throwing for 1,596 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also was highly-touted after a strong performance at the NorCal Nike Camp in Palo Alto, Calif.
Crook was a two-time all-conference selection in both his junior and senior seasons and was a three-year starter at quarterback for Glendora. He was also named the Sierra League Offensive Player of the Year and was an All-State Division II quarterback in 2004. An outstanding baseball player, he led his team to a 23-7 record and an appearance in the state quarterfinals.
"Jacob is an outstanding quarterback prospect," said McDonnell. "He has all of the tools that we look for at the quarterback position and will help fill the void with the graduation of Mike Granieri and fellow Californian Hassan Noble."
