A THREE-PART version of ye olde notebook:
The attention given to Liberty Raleigh basketball big man Levi Cook is heating up as well.
WVU fans might know that in September the Mountaineers received a commitment from Morgantown High junior Nathan Adrian, a 6-foot-9, 195-pound standout.
But within the state, all attention after that is flooding to Cook.
He's 6-10, 305 pounds. And he's a freshman.
You read correctly.
If you didn't check him out at the Civic Center, when he scored 19 points in a Raiders win over St. Albans, you can this Thursday and Friday in the WesBanco Holiday Tournament in Sissonville.
Mountaineer coach Bob Huggins, among others, is well aware of Cook.
"I've got a long way to go," Cook said Monday of the recruiting road ahead. "So far, though, I've got interest from West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Pitt, Maryland, Marshall, Central Florida and Ohio State."
Cook said he's averaging 21 points a game.
The answer might surprise - and perhaps anger - you if you're not an OSU fan.
Within the swirl of the ugly infractions case, the NCAA saw fit to grant a waiver to Meyer, set to take over after the bowl, to recruit. No lie.
If you follow recruiting even casually, you know the waiver has been most beneficial to Ohio State. Headlines like "Meyer making inroads" and "Buckeyes add another ESPNU 150 recruit" have been dotting the internet.
