SACRAMENTO -- Sacramento State head coach Brian Katz announced that Southwestern College forward Jordan Cooke-Harper has signed to play for the Hornets, and will enroll as a sophomore at the University this fall.
Cooke-Harper joins guards Rick Barros III and Raazhel Watkins as the three players to sign with the Hornets.
A 6-foot-9, 220-pound forward from San Diego, Calif., Cooke-Harper is the son of former NBA 15-year veteran Ron Harper. Last season, as a freshman at Southwestern College (Chula Vista, Calif.), Cooke-Harper helped the Jaguars to a 25-5 overall record, a 10-0 league mark, a Pacific Coast (South) Conference championship, and an appearance in the Southern California Regional Playoff championship game.
He played in all 30 of the team's games (28 starts) while averaging 10.2 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.4 blocked shots and 20.5 minutes per game. Cooke-Harper shot 58% (130-225) from the field, and, of his 230 rebounds, 70 came on the offensive glass. He was named first team all-conference for his efforts.
Cooke-Harper played four years of high school basketball, including his senior season at Don Bosco Prep High School in Ramsey, N.J. He spent his first three prep seasons at Poway High School in Poway, Calif. At Don Bosco, he helped the team to a 26-3 overall record and a state championship.
In his three seasons at Poway HS, he helped the team to 65 combined wins, and was named first team all-league as a junior after averaging 10.5 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.
"Jordan is an extremely versatile forward with inside and outside skills," Katz said. "He has very good passing and ball handling skills for a player of his size. In addition, Jordan has great instincts defensively as evidence of his 73 blocks a year ago, and can really influence and change shots."
Sacramento State finished this past season with a 15-16 overall record, and won its Big Sky Tournament first round game over Northern Arizona before falling to eventual champion Montana, 79-73.
