Dana Altman and the Oregon Ducks received good news today. As 2023 small forward out of Compass Prep high school, Mookie Cook has been projected to head to Eugene. This article will provide why Mookie Cook is a good fit for the Oregon Ducks!
What makes Oregon a good fit?
The first thing that makes Oregon a good fit for Mookie Cook is that Oregon will need more forwards by the time he arrives on campus. Oregon currently has four forwards; at least 3 of them will be gone by the time Cook steps onto campus, so Oregon will need another forward.
Mookie Cook’s Strengths
Another thing that will make Mookie Cook a good fit for Oregon is his strengths.
The first thing that stands out when you watch Mookie Cook’s game film is his aggressiveness when he is driving to the basket or rebounding the ball. He drives to the basket with so much aggressiveness that it won’t end well when you get in his way. In addition, with his rebounding, he gets a lot of put-back opportunities due to his aggressiveness.
The next thing that stands out in Cook’s game film is his off-ball movement. Cook moves very well without the ball, and that’s mainly how he gets his open looks for a shot or a drive to the basket.
The last big thing that stands out is his unselfishness. Cook is a guy that wants the best possible outcome for his team, not always for himself. So when he sees his teammates open, he isn’t selfish and decides to take a bad shot; he passes the ball.
Mookie Cook is a guy that Oregon would really benefit from getting a commitment from. Because of the strengths he has and the potential he has undeveloped, there is no telling how good this guy could be. If you want to watch Mookie Cook’s game film, it will be below.
