Trib prospect: Beaver Falls guard Drew Cook
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Given that he was named first-team all-state after leading Beaver Falls to WPIAL and PIAA Class AA championships, it's no wonder Drew Cook called his senior season “close to perfect.”
“It was the greatest feeling,” said Cook, who finished with 1,239 career points. “Winning state alone was the best feeling. You add winning the WPIAL, state and being named first-team all-state, and it doesn't get any better than that.”
Well, it just got a little bit better.
Cook committed to play basketball at California (Pa.), selecting the Vulcans over Clarion and Pitt-Johnstown.
“It came down to where I'm most comfortable,” said Cook, who attended Cal coach Bill Brown's camp last summer. “I like him, and you can't beat their facilities. It was hard to say no.”
Cook, who averaged 15.9 points a game as a senior, also is a strong defender.
“The college game is a lot different than high school,” said Cook, whose brother Devin plays football at Pitt. “It's a lot quicker, but that's a challenge I'm up for, to play Division II basketball.”
