Hallice Cooke Cuts List to 4, Will Announce on SNY.tv
Hallice Cooke, one of the top shooting guards in the Class of 2013 out of the Sports U AAU program and two-time defending New Jersey Tournament of Champions winner St. Anthony, will be contributing periodically to ZAGSBLOG entering his senior season. Here’s his fourth entry:
How’s it going, basketball world?
As school approaches I’ve spent the last couple of weeks relaxing and spending time with my family. I’ve had a great summer playing basketball. I finished up playing basketball in Boston and in the Poconos. Boston was great. I spent two days with several NBA players: John Wall, Jason Terry, Jameer Nelson, Ramon Sessions, Maalik Wayns, Isaiah Thomas, and Dionte Christmas. It was a great way to end my summer, I learned a lot from the pros and got to see where my game is.
The recruiting process is also almost coming to an end as my final four are St. Joe’s, Richmond, Xavier and Oregon State. My first visit will be next week to Oregon State, Sept 8th. I’m thankful to have these great options and can’t wait to get this process over with. I plan announcing sometime next month on SNY.tv, Stay tuned!
