Cook averaged 2.6 points per game in 25 games last season

The DePaul Blue Demons will look to fill their big man depth, as 6’10 sophomore center Levi Cook has decided to transfer, per a release from the school.

Levi Cook Granted Permission to Seek Transfer Opportunities

CHICAGO – DePaul and Levi Cook have come to a mutual agreement for his release to pursue transfer opportunities at other institutions. Cook played in 25 games as a freshman last season.

Cook averaged 2.6 points and 2.3 rebounds per game during his freshman campaign while shooting .604 (29-48) from the field. He averaged 10.9 minutes per game and scored a season-high seven points at Marquette on Jan. 14. Cook also went 8-for-13 (.615) from the free throw line.

While Marin Marin and Jaylon Butz are expected to get most of the starts down low this year, it’s never ideal to lose a player this close to the start of the season.

The Blue Demons now have an extra open scholarship going forward, which is important to remember for recruiting.

Cook will have to sit this season and be eligible for three more starting in 2018-19. Per Big East rules he cannot transfer to a Big East school.
