DePaul men’s basketball lands 3-star center Levi Cook

DePaul men’s basketball landed their first new recruit of the spring recruiting session as Levi Cook has verbally committed.

Cook is a 6’10, 305 lb center from Arnet, West Virginia. He is ranked as a 3-star recruit by ESPN and by, and originally was committed to West Virginia. He made a commitment to the Mountaineers when he was a freshman in 2012 and de-committed in 2014. He re-classified to the class of 2016 and re-opened his commitment. He visited DePaul on Feb. 20 and made his verbal commitment on Twitter this morning.

This addition gives DePaul four freshmen joining the team for the 2016-17 season, along with senior transfer Chris Harrison-Docks. The other three commits are forward Algevon Eichelberger and guards Devin Gage and Brandon Cyrus.

The commitment helps replenish forward depth for the Blue Demons going into 2016-17. They recently lost three freshman forwards to transfers, leaving them very scarce with big-man depth. This addition helps in that department, and DePaul is not done yet. They still have two scholarship spots open, and three roster spots overall.
