Two Illinois assistant coaches went to Kentucky.
Is CMW there?
Did Kofi pull out of the draft?
This guy is like Egbunu, but thicker. Shaq "lite." Seems strange that he would transfer, but maybe he just wants new digs for a year before playing professionally.
Sources: Illinois star Cockburn considers transfer
Swap him for Payne!
And throw in a couple more!
Would be a huge pickup, but are we even on this guys radar?
I saw Cockburn play in Tampa when he was a senior in high school. He was a more advanced player than Jitoboh, but he was just as heavy and overweight. I didn’t expect him to succeed in college. To his credit and the Illinois program’s credit, he has turned into a physical monster and dramatically transformed his body. If he comes back to college, my guess is that he ends up at Kentucky.
I guess he was intimidated by the Illini adding Payne
Coach White is not known for developing bigs. If coming back to Florida, would have to think FSU. Following coaches that recruited him to KY seems logical. Portal makes things interesting. Kids can leave after coaching changes they don’t like
He is shopping for biggest payday now that he can get paid out in the open
You don't develop a big like him, you throw him the ball.
Let the STD jokes about his name begin in 3... 2... 1...
There would be bumper stickers in Columbia SC, for sure.
CMW should be under his bedroom window serenading him right now!
With Castleton back, seems unlikely. They both play the same position - without much flexibility (pretty much inside the paint players all the way), both would pretty much expect to start at this stage in their career.
It would be nice of course to have that depth. But rarely do players like this transfer in to “provide depth” even in a 50/50 split. It would alienate someone.
He'd make a heck of a tight end.
