Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco suffered a concussion in the 40-0 rout of the Miami Dolphins, leaving the field Thursday night bloodied and dazed.
In the midst of his best game of the season, Flacco took a gruesome shot to the head late in the first half from linebacker Kiko Alonso after sliding to the ground on a run. Flacco’s helmet immediately flew off of his head, and the Super Bowl-winning quarterback went to the locker room with a glassy-eyed look and blood coming from his left ear.
Cook becomes the 17th pledge for the Bulldogs, who boasted RecruitingNation’s No. 8-ranked class before Cook’s commitment. Kirby Smart’s second full class in Athens now features eight ESPN 300 members, including No. 1 overall and top-ranked quarterback Justin Fields and No. 1-ranked running back Zamir White.
White and Cook will head to Georgia with perfect timing as Nick Chubb and Sony Michel are departing for the NFL following the season.
The Bulldogs now have a second straight top-5 class in sight with targets such as five-star defensive end K.J. Henry, five-star cornerback Tyson Campbell, No. 27 Deontrey Hill, No. 28 Jamaree Salyer, No. 38 Tyreke Johnson, No. 63 Luke Ford and No. 211 Channing Tindall remaining in play. Georgia hasn’t inked back-to-back top-5 classes in the 13 years ESPN has ranked prospects and classes.
