Four Star Forward Elgin Cook Commits to Oregon

Multiple outlets reporting this afternoon that four star junior college forward Elgin Cook has committed to Oregon.

Cook recently visited Eugene for the Cal and Stanford games. In our earlier story on Cook, we noted that he can play either forward spot and will create matchup problems for opposing defenses. Zagsblog.com has more on Cook's commitment here, as well as some good quotes from Cook and his junior college coach, Steve Forbes:

"I liked the fact that me, Damyean [Dotson] and Dominic [Artis] will have a chance to grow together," Cook told SNY.tv by text. "I think Oregon fits my style. The fans were crazy and I'm just excited about Dana and the coaching staff."

"He chose Oregon because of his relationship with Coach Dana Altman and Coach Tony Stubblefield," Forbes said. "He has the opportunity to play and be in the same class as Dominic Artis and Damyean Dotson. He also liked the style of play."

Cook is Oregon's seventh commit, and second JUCO commit, in the 2013 basketball class. He adds much needed experience to their front court, which will lose four players to graduation this year. With three years of eligibility, he will be in the same class as Artis and Dotson going forward.

Oregon also remains a finalist for basketball phenom Aaron Gordon, a five star prep from San Jose, though it is unclear whether Altman and his staff have any more scholarships available. Because they are also playing football, Tyrell and Tyree Robinson do not count against the scholarship limit for the Ducks.
