Some of the best recruiters in college football won’t take no for an answer.

Even though one high school prospect is already committed to Louisiana Monroe, it hasn’t stopped SMU from recruiting him even harder.

Apparently it’s working; Shreveport Evangel’s Blake Cogswell told PonyStampede.com Saturday morning that he will be take an official and unofficial visit to the Hilltop.

“I would consider my commitment to ULM as a soft verbal,” Cogswell said. “I’m coming to Dallas for SMU’s game on November 7 for an unofficial visit and I also plan on taking an official visit there after my high school season.”

Cogswell plans on taking other visits to Alabama, Arkansas, and Florida State.

When asked what stands out about SMU, the talented defensive tackle was quick to answer.

“If I end up going to SMU it will be because of the quality of education I would receive there,” Cogswell said. “They have a great academic reputation; it would be a top of the line education. They also have the major I’m looking for.”

Cogswell currently holds offers from ULM, Vanderbilt, Louisiana Tech, SMU, TCU and Oklahoma State.

Cogswell, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound athlete who runs a 4.8 forty, has racked up 48 tackles, 6 sacks and 28 tackles for losses so far this season.

“SMU is probably recruiting me the hardest right now,” Cogswell said. “I have developed a great relationship with Coach (Jeff) Reinebold. He is a great coach and very easy to talk to, he cares about me as a person, not just a recruit.”
