    Elgin cook

    According to the Milwaukee Running Rebels coaching staff, former Iowa State commitment Elgin Cook is making a move to the class of 2012 and will attend Humble (Texas) Christian Life. The 6-foot-6 wing is an electric athlete who has some skill to go along with his elite level running and jumping ability. ...


    This may be old news but it's in a recent story and is somewhat official.

    Re: Elgin cook

    I hope that he will still be joining the 2012 class here, seems like the kid has a lot of talent and would finish off an excellent recruiting class.

    Based on this article it is probably best for Elgin to move to 2012.

    Maybe, maybe not. Unless CFH has decided that the kid has too much baggage, there's no reason not to continue recruiting him. There's always roster turnover - some expected, some unexpected - so it seems likely that if they keep him on their radar there'll be a spot for him somewhere. It would suck if they decided to cut bait now. We're not good enough to say thanks but no thanks to talented players like Cook just yet.

    Re: Elgin cook

    Once upon a time I was even more excited about Cook than I was about Ejim.

    Each team gets a certain amount of exceptions for unsigned/post-grad kids.

    He won't be signed this fall by ISU or likely by anyone else. Probably will be spring signee and if ISU has a spot available next spring, Cook could be a candidate. I would not completely rule him out yet.
