As a Recruit
Jeremiah Cobb rushed for more than 2,000 yards as a sophomore, but he was not satisfied. In fact, Cobb has continued to transform his body into what it takes to play running back on the next level. “It’s hard for a Power Five school to feel good about you when you’re 170 pounds,” Cobb’s coach, Kirk Johnson, told the Montgomery Independent. “He’s different. Jeremiah Cobb ran the ball at 160 pounds like he was 205. But when he’s 185 and he runs like he’s 205, that’s going to be a lot different. We ask a lot out of him, and he does a lot of things for us.” Cobb lists hunting and fishing as his hobbies, and he plans on majoring in sports medicine in college. His mother is Rachel Cobb. He has one sibling.

Jeremiah Cobb's compact frame, feel as a runner and versatility as a pass catcher reminds us of Shane Vereen. Both also were accomplished sprinters at the high school level with sub-11.0 second marks in the 100 meters.
