Ames, Iowa becomes a destination for yet another transfer.
Hallice Cooke, who spent a year at Oregon State before deciding to leave the program on April 21, is the latest transfer to commit to Iowa State. He made the announcement through his Instagram page on Monday night.
Cooke averaged 8.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game for the Beavers.
This is the second transfer Fred Hoiberg has lured to Iowa State this spring. Back in mid-April, UNLV’s top scorer Bryce Dejean-Jones decided to play for the Cyclones in his final season. Dejean-Jones is eligible to play next season granted he graduated.
The two transfer guards join JuCo transfer forwards Darien Williams and Jameel McKay, a former Marquette commit, in the Cyclones’ incoming class. Hoiberg has also earned pledges from point guard Clay Cluster and Greek 7-footer Giorgos Tsalmpouris, both members of the Class of 2014.
Cooke will have to sit out the 2014-2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He has three years left.
