    For those interested in this type of thing....Two former cyclone commits that ended up parting ways, Elgin Cook and Richard Amardi both are playing significant roles for Oregon against Wisky...

    Cook looks to be really good.....even though his stats for the season are not incredible....reminds me of Clyburn a lot....

    Amardi looks to be a pounder in the paint with limited offensive skills....

    Always interesting to watch previous commits success or lack there of - especially now in the tourney when the conference thing goes away...

    I like Cook and he reminds me of a stronger Ejim.

    Amardi was recruited over for Bluford (mistake looking back on it) and something happened with Cook in Milwaukee that caused him to transfer to a High School in Texas (I think it was a gang shooting that killed one of his best friends).

    Cook got shot or was shot at when he was a commit to us and ended up going the juco route or prep school if I remember correct. Not sure why we didn continue recruiting him.

    With all due respect, not a chance in hell Cook is stronger than Ejim.

    I do not think it was that clear cut in regards to who we had in mind would be the one to leave when we got Kane to visit. We should have pulled Bluford's scholarship the moment Kane committed. Then again, the Bluford offer always seemed like a huge reach

    Cook made a good play just before the game was lost. He gave Oregon their last chance.

    I thought Amardi would do better at Oregon this year. Seems to have limited offensive skill set and every game I have seen him play he is always in foul trouble.
