OSU makes it official, Cook has signed

OREGON STATE has made it official, announcing bruising running back Tim Cook has signed a financial aid agreement with the Beavs.

Tim Cook, a 6-foot-1, 236-pound running back, from White Hall, Ark. will arrive in Corvallis this summer with two years to play two.

Cook spent the last three seasons at Eastern Arizona Community College where he earned second team All-WSFL (Western States Football League) and second team All-ACCAC (Arizona Community College Athletic Conference) honors in 2014. He rushed 100 times for 639 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore. Cook also saw limited action at linebacker.

He was the No. 61 JUCO prospect in the nation in the 2015 class, according to Scout.com.

He originally signed with Louisville over Arizona, California and Nebraska. He was released from his LOI to Louisville after one class credit would not transfer, it was reported, a situation he rectified at Eastern this spring.

Cook joins a stable of running backs at Oregon State that includes three-year starter Storm Woods as well as junior Chris Brown and sophomore Damien Haskins, who earned his first college action last fall. Incoming true freshmen Deltron Sands and Taylor Thomas will join the Beavs in August, with Jaylynn Bailey and Marcus Greaves, both of whom redshirted in 2014, also in the fold.
