2023 five-star SF Marquis “Mookie” Cook tells me that he has heard from Kentucky, Memphis, USC, UCLA, Arizona, Oregon, and Gonzaga since the contact period began last night (@marquiscookk ).— Recruits Zone (@recruitszone) June 15, 2021
Cook is a native of Portland, Oregon, hence why every other team to contact him thus far is located on the West Coast.
The rising junior is a 6-foot-7, 200-pound small forward who started his high school career at home in Oregon at Jefferson High School, but he’ll begin playing at Compass Prep in Chandler, Arizona next fall.
In addition to his talents on the hardwood, Cook also plays football and is a wide receiver.
