USC is making a strong pitch for 6-6 Elgin Cook of Northwestern Florida State JC in Niceville, FL. Frank Martin and his assistants have been down multiple times to scout Cook according to his coach Steve Forbes.
Cook is the son of former Arkansas and NBA player Alvin Robertson. He signed with Iowa State out of high school and did not qualify. He enrolled at a prep school for a semester and redshirted, and then enrolled at the junior college and redshirted a semester. So, he has three season of eligibility remaining. This season he is averaging 15 points and 6 rebounds per game while shooting 62% from the floor.
He will take official visits to Oregon and Gonzaga next weekend and will decide on his other official visits after his upcoming tournaments. USC, New Mexico, Virginia Commonwealth, Arkansas, Illinois and TCU are the schools he’s considering for those last three visits.
