    Elgin Cook: Our Forgotten Recruit

    Check out the dunk montage. I can't wait to see this guy develop in Fred's system. The last dunk is sweet.

    Really hope we have a midnight madness dunk contest next year!!!!
    Cook v. Ejim v. Godfrey v. Allen v. Sledge. I don't know if Babb or anyone else can throw it down with some style but we could have a pretty sweet dunk contest.

    Just saying I wouldn't get too caught up in watching a dunk compilation as it relates to his overall ability.

    Hopefully he has a sweet jumper from 10-20ft, but I haven't seen it if he does.

    Redshirting will likely be best I'm guessing.

    Nobody thought Melvin would be a very good offensive player either and hes doing pretty good. He will be at the least athletic though. You can never have too many athletes.

    So it really has nothing to do with being a gmac recruit then? Just wanted to slam gmac (not that I blame you)?

    Re: Elgin Cook: Our Forgotten Recruit

    Redshirt him so he can develop a jump shot and get stronger. Ejim and Babb can handle the 3 next year.

    IMO, I believe that Cook will have the hardest time getting on the court over the next few years. I don`t see any unique skills that would warrent early playing time, and he will certainly need time to develope a B12 body.
