playmaker DeMarco Cobbs is wanted by almost every college program in the
country, so it’s not surprise that some of the nation’s top recruiters have
stopped by Tulsa, Oklahoma to check in on the phenom.
Cobbs did it all for his Tulsa Central high school team this past season,
leading his team to a 6-3 record while playing quarterback and wide receiver, as
