Cook Holding Court, DeMatha Seniors Mull Offers
Caught up with DeMatha basketball coach Mike Jones as he drove home from Chris Paul's CP3 Elite Guard Camp in Winston-Salem, N.C., where Jones noted the Washington area was well represented. DeMatha junior Quinn Cook, O'Connell senior Kendall Marshall (North Carolina), Georgetown Prep senior Markel Starks (Georgetown) and Gonzaga All-Met senior Tyler Thornton (Duke) were in attendance along with Jones and Gonzaga Coach Steve Turner.
While those three seniors long ago made their college choices, Jones said Cook is far from reaching his decision.
"It's all over the place," Jones said. "There's Wake Forest, Ohio State I talked to last night, and Duke wants him to come down for their elite camp this weekend, but I don't think he's going to make it. Virginia, Notre Dame Georgetown. He's got quite a few. Villanova, too."
As for DeMatha's seniors, forward Victor Oladipo will visit Indiana on Sept. 3-4 and will hit Notre Dame in mid-October for the Fighting Irish football game against Southern Cal. Forward Jerian Grant is going to Notre Dame on Sept. 5, with Virginia the following weekend, and DePaul and Providence are also on the schedule. Guard Justin Black has offers from Morgan State and North Carolina A&T.
