100 Days of Summer: Get to Know No. 35 Chance Cook



The next subject of our summer-long countdown saw the field in 12 games as a true freshman and could make a bigger impact in 2017.

How he got to OSU

Cook came to the Cowboys as a walk-on from Canadian High School (Canadian, Tex.) where he played on both sides of the ball. As a running back he rushed for 2,122 yards and 32 touchdowns on 9.5 yards per carry his senior season. He was also a pesky defensive back and returned punts and kicks. Cook’s versatility and production earned him all-district honors all four years of his prep career.

What he’s done in Stillwater

Cook is not exactly a household name among Cowboy fans but the true freshman earned playing time upon arrival in Stillwater. He played in every game except the Alamo Bowl with most of his burn coming on special teams.

Role in 2017

He’s already put on nearly 10 pounds and has gained valuable experience on kick coverage. A rotation role at safety is not outside the realm of possibility — especially if someone twists an ankle or a knee. Look for Cook’s role to increase. He could compete for reps on defense either this fall or next.

Noteworthy stats and highlights

Had two tackles against Iowa State and a tackle for loss against Southeastern Louisiana in last year’s season opener. In this past spring game, pitched in for four tackles (two solo). During his senior season in high school, Cook recorded 85 total tackles, six tackles for loss and two interceptions.
