From the 1952 University of Kentucky Basketball Media Guide:
Relegated to the second team in 1950-51, All-State selections by the Louisville Courier-Journal and a second team choice on the High School All-American of Chuck Taylor . . . He was high point man for both teams in the annual North-South High School All-Star game last year with 14 points . . . Cooke could surprise by being the best of the freshmen on this year’s edition of the No. 1 college team in the nation . . . He comes from Maysville, Ky., where he starred on the state championship high school team sunder the expert guidance of Coach Earle Jones . . . Coach Rupp pointed the finger to Cooke before the season opened as the only freshman likely to help the varsity this year . . . Cooke is a fast, driving type of player and a good shot from outside . . . He’s been hurt, but should see considerable action.
