The DePaul Blue Demons added some needed size to their 2016 class on Tuesday. One time West Virginia commitment Levi Cook decided on the Blue Demons after making an earlier official visit.
DePaul has been working to re-shape their roster under Head Coach Dave Leitao, and Cook is a step in that direction. In better shape than ever now at Elev8 Prep, Cook asserted himself as one of the better available bigs in 2016 class, but now he is off the board.
Along with DePaul, Cook made an official visit to South Carolina as well, but he chose the Big East program due to his comfort with the coaching staff. Also Cook had interest from VCU and Virginia Tech.
This is the fourth commitment in DePaul’s class. Cook joins Brandon Cyrus, Devin Gage, and Al Eichelberger in Leitao’s first full class in his second tenure in Chicago.
