It’s been an exciting week for Liberty-Eylau 2018 offensive lineman Kylar Cooks, and it continued Wednesday night with his third Division I scholarship offer since Monday.

Cooks (6-5, 250) picked up an offer from Abilene Christian, the Liberty-Eylau coaching staff informed on Thursday morning.

He later picked up an offer from Alcorn State on Thursday.

In addition to FCS programs Abilene Christian and Alcorn State, Cooks holds three additional FBS offers from Arkansas State and North Texas — which he received Monday — and Texas State.

Last season, Cooks helped Liberty-Eylau to a 5-6 record and a berth in the Class 4A Division I bi-district round of the playoffs. He is a key piece of a solid nucleus of returning starters in 2017.

Other promising returnees include 2018 athlete Decorian Phillips, who started at quarterback as a sophomore, and 2019 standout Isaiah Cross, who spent the majority of his time at receiver in 2016.

Abilene Christian competes in the Southland Conference. The Wildcats will be under new leadership in 2017 with the arrival of head coach Adam Dorrel, who won three Division II national championships with Northwest Missouri State from 2011-16.

Last season, ACU was 2-9 overall and 2-7 in league play.

Alcorn State, located in Lorman, Miss., plays in the East Division of the SWAC and most recently went to the Celebration Bowl in 2015, which helped promote former coach Jay Hopson to an FBS job at Southern Miss.

Fred McNair oversaw a younger Braves team this past campaign and led the squad to a 5-6 record in his first season.

Alcorn State has won five historically black colleges and universities national championships, the latest in 2014, and owns 15 SWAC banners.

Cooks, like all college football prospects currently in their junior year of high school, will become eligible to sign with any school that offers him in December.
