    Elgin Cook 2012?

    I know we are going hard after Webster-Chan at the SF position but that seems like a long shot to me. What about Cook? I know he had some off the court issues but if he can get his personal life figured out down in Texas shouldn't we be chasing him still? The reason I bring this up is Chris didn't mention anything about him on the players to watch for 2012 list.

    guessing he's ours for the taking but IMO Fred waits to see if problems follow the kid to Texas.

    I wouldn't rule anything out. At this point though, I'll be surprised if he ends up at Iowa State.

    I totally agree. I think Cook is still on our radar and the last thing we heard from Cook he was still interested in ISU, but the coaching staff is waiting to see how his time in Texas turns out.

    WOTS is that Cook was recently seen at IHCC. Instead of reclassifying to 2012, he may instead be headed to a JUCO as a 2011 player.

    Re: Elgin Cook 2012?

    That would be a shame if he doesn't end up at ISU, but not a backbreaker. I hope he leaves whatever trouble he ran into in Milwaukee behind and has a good college career regardless of where he ends up.

    By personal problems you mean other guys trying to shoot at him for no apparent reason. I was under the impression that his personal life is fine but his safety was not, just the area he lives in was the reason he went to texas.

    Well then what is the exact situation then Mr. Smartass... I thought he moved to Texas for his personal safety, not an issue of grades or criminal issues. I'll await for a response.

    You'd have to have your head up your *** not to see this red flag.

    I won't be surprised if he is a clone. Then again, I am generally not surprised when someone signs with the team since we usually know who they have been recruiting.

    Or could you maybe realize those attempts are out of jealousy. It's crazy to think maybe a kid can be an upstanding individual growing up in a dangerous part of milwaukee. Please show proof that cook is abad individual and you'd have a point. Until then, You sir have your head up your ***.
