Cooks, a Kenosha, Wis. native, picked the Spartans and coach Suzy Merchant over UCLA, Wisconsin, Michigan and Purdue. The 6-foot-4 forward was part of the United States under-18 women’s national team this summer.
Michigan State is off to a 2-0 start this season and is currently sitting just outside the AP Top 25, receiving the most votes of any unranked team. The Spartans went 25-9 last season and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
