Transferring Oregon State guard Hallice Cooke is planning visits to Dayton and St. Joe’s and will decide sometime after those trips, his father told SNY.tv.
“He’s got two left, St. Joseph’s and Dayton is what we’re trying to set up,” Rob Cooke told SNY.tv Tuesday. “So hopefully within the next two weeks.”
Other schools have reached out, including Tennessee, Boston College and Creighton, but Rob said it was unclear if Hallice would visit any of those schools. The 6-foot-3 Cooke is enrolled at Oregon State until school ends next month.
“Other schools have reached out, but his availability and the time is short and you got the dead period at the end of the month,” Rob said. “So that’s making things a little tight.”
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.”
Rob said his son was unlikely to remain at Oregon State, where former UCLA coach Ben Howland may replace Craig Robinson.
“I don’t know,” Rob said. “You never know who’s going to come in. It may not be the person you want. I told him, ‘Just take your time, weigh your options. Just realize you have two more visits left.'”
