Already we've got seven Rivals 3-star commitments vs. four for Troy.

And this is all with playing in Legion Field... my how things will explode for UAB once we're in our oncampus stadium.

Good luck with that...

Could be a little poetic justice between TROY & UAB...

http://rivals.yahoo.com/uab/football/recruiting/player-Johnny-Cockrell-117047

First of all, I suspect that is an error. But even if it's not, seeing how he's signed a LOI, that would be all contingent on whether or not UAB would release him from that LOI.

Do you know if he officially signed one at UAB, or if that's an error by the site manager?

Well... Cockrell was announced as an early signee back in December. Here was the official story on UABsports.com: http://uabsports.cstv.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/121510aaa.html

An updated list of JUCO signees has Cockrill committing to Troy.

http://jcfootball.scout.com/2/1031431.html

See East Mississippi about halfway down.

He would not have enrolled anywhere yet as it list him as graduating in the Spring.

Too much of a coincidence...Cockrill and Cockrell from the same team? Only Cockrell on their roster

A quote from Tevin Wells...

Wells told the Dothan Eagle last week that he had committed to Troy and was done with his official visits, but committed to UAB on an official over the weekend.

“It was a verbal but it wasn’t like ‘Hey I’m going to Troy,’” Wells told The Birmingham News.

:rollinglaugh: Yeah, that's doctor material right there...

You cant blame him, he has a better chance of getting more playing time on and off the field at UAB. After all UAB has as many players in the NFL as Abilene Christian. At Troy he would have had to work harder off the field to get on the field. Troy currently Has 9 Defensive players in the NFL to UAB's 1 (Bryan Thomas LB NYJ).

CB Johnny Cockrill - Troy
Midyear

per @dothaneagletroy:

@trojanbrutha only thing I can figure is if he's coming, he didn't graduate from JUCO in Dec. in time to enroll in Jan.


ok blazer85, is this kid on campus, attending classes?

I have heard nothing from our people that would indicate he's not coming. Whether he's officially on campus right now, I'm not sure. He is listed in the UAB electronic phonebook, which typically only happens if you're either currently enrolled or have been enrolled in the past.

What I do know, however, is that it wouldn't change anything regarding his LOI. He signed a LOI so whether or not he graduated in December wouldn't have any influence on that. And what's more, UAB can of course put restrictions on where he's allowed to sign if we were to even let him out of his LOI (assuming he even wants to and the whole thing isn't an error).

He's still listed as a signee for us both on Rivals and on ESPN.

He's not going to Troy, that much I do know now. The rivals/scout lists are incorrect there.
