Cook Gets Visit from UNC

The North Carolina staff already has a pair of 2011 prospects in the fold and spent the fall contact period evaluating potential prospects to join that class, including Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha point guard Quinn Cook.

"They were at 90-percent of my games this summer," Cook said. "I've been in contact with the coaching staff. Coach McGrath came up to our workout last Thursday. I played very well and he was impressed with my play."

Cook, who also has strong interest from Tennessee, Wake Forest, Ohio State, Kentucky, Georgetown, Maryland, Florida State, Duke, Providence, Notre Dame and Indiana, said North Carolina has explained the state of their recruitment of him.

"The whole coaching staff is going to have a sit down and have evaluations on all the players they are tracking and they'll go from there," Cook said. "[Coach McGrath] told me that he loves my game and coach [Roy] Williams loves my game and they just want to track me for the rest of the year and just go from there."

"They just wanted me to know that they have very high interest in me," he added. "They want to keep in contact with me and get to know me a little better. They want to get me up to campus and I guess the scholarship [offer] will take care of itself."

While a date hasn't been set, Cook said he'll likely take an unofficial visit to North Carolina during the coming season.

"They talked to my mom. They want to get me up for [‘Late Night with Roy Williams'] or a game. I'm interested in getting up there and seeing the campus for myself."

Although he's yet to take an unofficial visit to Chapel Hill, the 6-foot, 170-pound floor general already has a feel for the North Carolina program.

"That was my dream school," he said. "I was a big Jordan fan. When you think of Carolina basketball you think of him. I have high respect for Coach Williams and his staff and what he's doing at North Carolina. I have high respect for them."

Like the majority of the top underclassmen, Cook is still in the evaluating process of his college decision. At this point he doesn't claim any favorites.

"I have no favorites as of right now. I'm just enjoying it all right now. I'm just taking it all in."

Cook is currently ranked as a four-star prospect and checks in at No. 31 overall in's 2011 Top 75.
