Dual Threat QB Theltus Cobbins Commits to Kentucky

Theltus Cobbins - 2011 Kentucky Commit

Theltus Cobbins, a 6-2, 195 pound dual-threat Quarterback with 4.44 speed in the 40-yard dash, delivered his commitment to Kentucky Coach Joker Phillips via telephone Wednesday.

Theltus has not yet stepped on a petal of Kentucky bluegrass, but that didn’t stop McDonogh 35’s talented quarterback, who is one of the state’s top senior prospects, from seeking greener pastures in verbally committing to play football for the Wildcats of the Southeastern Conference.

Cobbins is the second quarterback commitment and seventh overall pledge secured by Phillips and the Wildcats. The Wildcats earlier received an April 20 commitment from pro-style quarterback Max Smith (6-5, 220) of Birmingham of Van Nuys, Calif. Smith passed for 2,450 yards and 22 touchdowns with just two interceptions as a junior.

Coach Martin has been the lead recruiter of Cobbins and seemed to be one of the swaying factors for Theltus’ commit to Kentucky. The UK Coaching staff is telling him he will get a chance at competing for the starting QB position in the 2011 season, “that did it for him” said McDonogh 35 Coach Wayne Reese. “The guy who recruited him, Tee Martin, is pretty polished. I think that’s what sold him. He told him he would get a shot.”

LSU, Texas Tech, Florida State, USM and Oklahoma State were recruiting Cobbins as a cornerback or athlete, Reese said, while Kentucky, Tulane, SMU and ULL sought him as a quarterback.
