Oak Hill Academy point guard Quinn Cook partially tore his ACL during last weekend’s Boost Mobile Elite 24 game in Venice Beach, Calif. and is out at least three months.
Oak Hill coach Steve Smith confirmed the news.
Cook is expected to have surgery Friday.
“I’m frustrated but I have to keep a positive attitude because God won’t put you through something he doesn’t think you will not overcome,” Cook told The Washington Post. “I’ve been through worse.”
The Post reported that Cook will still sign in November. He is considering Arizona, Duke, North Carolina, UCLA, Rutgers, St. John’s and Georgetown.
Cook helped the U.S. U17 team win the gold medal at the FIBA World Championship in Hamburg, Germany in July.
