Dec. 18, 2013

University of Minnesota head football coach Jerry Kill has announced the signing of Cody Poock to a national letter of intent.

Poock will be transferring to Minnesota from Iowa Western in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and will have three playing seasons of eligibility remaining.

The Okoboji, Iowa, native is a 6-foot 2-inch, 230-pound linebacker who recorded 80 tackles (32 solo) as a freshman for a team that finished the season with an 11-1 mark. He also notched two interceptions (both of which were returned for touchdowns) and forced one fumble as the Reivers recorded five shutouts and allowed their opponents to score an average of only 11.2 points per game.

Poock recorded 8.5 tackles-for-loss and broke up two passes for Iowa Western. He also had one rush on the year, which was a 4-yard gain on a fake punt.

Poock attended Spirit Lake high school in Spirit Lake, Iowa, and helped lead his team to a 15-1 record as a senior. He excelled as a linebacker and running back in high school as Spirit Lake won the Class 2A state title in 2012.
