Cook talks schools involved
In a previous interview with On3, Cook discussed each of the programs.
Kentucky: “If you want to go to the NBA, that’s definitely the place to be. It speaks for itself. It’s just if you want to do it or not.”
Gonzaga: “Man, they play up and down. That’s just a great coach- Mark Few…Brian Michaelson. They’ve just always shown love from the beginning. I was the first they offered in the 2023 class so that stands out to me.”
