    Cooke is a Cyclone!

    According to his dad, he's only visiting two more schools... Dayton and St. Joe's. He's making his decision in the next couple weeks. Sounds like a return to Oregon State is not happening. His dad had some nice things to say about Iowa State. You have to like our chances.

    Re: Cooke update

    I was thinking it was St. John's not St. Joe's. That's a bit of a relief. Think we're definitely the favorites at this point. Hard to imagine too many transfers wanting to go to Dayton. Gotta think Miller will be looking for greener pastures in the near future.

    Dad found Focustown. No distractions. I guess it wasn't all about digitty duece wanting tweets.

    I think he will find after those two visits we are better in almost every way especially facilities.

    As reported here, the entire family visited Iowa State this past weekend and Rob said the visit went well.

    “We really liked it,” Rob said. “Great town. No distractions. Twenty-four access to the gym so that was definitely a very nice trip. It was quite enjoyable.”

    Re: Cooke update

    That last quote was my favorite. "Just realize you have two more visits left" I think Cooke might have said something to his dad and his dad told him to slow down a bit.

    Re: Cooke update

    Dunno why people got upset he didn't immediately sign. He specifically said he wasn't going to do that, and was going to take his time and think through his decision (like he didn't do for Oregon state).

    Even if that is true, after making a mistake the first time he needs time to see that for himself.

    We're spoiled by Hoiball now. Outside of ISU I've always preferred NBA basketball…I find myself for the first time ever wishing my NBA team could execute offensively as well as my college team usually does.

    Re: Cooke update

    I wouldn't sleep on St. Joes. Obviously, I think we are sitting in really good shape here, but being from St. Anthony's High School, I wouldn't count out St. Joes either. He may want to go back out east and be closer to home again.

    I would really be surprised if he choose Dayton. I think we're his best choice, obviously, but if he's at all interested in being closer to home, St. Joes would have a shot.

    Re: Cooke update

    Is this guy the real deal? Was he heavily recruited out of highschool? Seems like people are pretty pumped about him, but his stats didn't blow me away. Seems solid, but is he a star?

    Re: Cooke update

    We get pumped about all recruits. We even talked ourselves into Mike Evanovich being a great under the radar recruit.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I was going to ask the exact same thing, but figured I'd get ripped for not being drunk on the kool aid.

    To tell you the truth, when I watch some of his videos, I see Sherron Dorsey-Walker. Which isn't a bad thing, it just is what it is. If that's what people are expecting, then fine, but if they are expecting something more than that, then their expectations might be a little high.

    He wasn't that highly recruited out of high school. He was a 3 star. Had offers from schools like Oregon State, Penn State, St. Joe's, etc. No bigger named basketball schools.

    He's become VERY intriguing though because he shot 45% from 3 last year. Took 90 3's last year, so he put quite a few of them up too. So the kid can shoot. So that alone gives him a great chance in Fred's offense.

    I think he's worth the scholly, because he's already proven he can shoot at the college level, but he is pretty slight and only averaged 8 pts, 2 rebs, and 2 assists per game at Oregon State. Dorsey-Walker could have easily averaged that playing at Oregon State IMO.

    I think Cooke is a quality player that will do well here, so you definitely should take him. He just might not be the next DeAndre Kane, that's all. But not many are.
