Elgin Cook recruitment picking up, and it should

Elgin Cook has it in his blood. He is the son of one of the best defenders in NBA history, Alvin Robertson. Cook, a red-shirt freshman at NW Florida State, is having an excellent year to date. Cook creates match-up nightmares because of his ability to drag bigger post players out on the perimeter and take smaller guards & forwards into the post. He is excellent when attacking the rim and crashing the offensive glass. He is an elite athlete who plays well above the rim and has a knack for timing the ball when it comes off the rim.

Cook is long and lean at 6-6/190, but plays strong on both ends. He can guard multiple positions on the defensive end because of his versatility. Cook is averaging 16ppg, 6.3rpg and 2.2apg in only 19.6 minutes per game. Not only is he extremely productive during those 20 minutes, he is also shooting the ball at an extremely high percentage (64.6%).  When talking with Cook today, he said he didn’t have a clear cut favorite and will narrow it down when the season begins to wind down.

Here is a look who is actively recruiting Cook. This list will only continue to grow, especially if NW Florida State makes it back to the NJCAA National Tournament in Hutchinson, KS.

Offers: Gonzaga, TCU, Oregon, New Mexico, VCU, Washington, Auburn, Mississippi State and Murray State
