Chance Cook has found a home at New Mexico State, and he couldn’t be happier. A little over a year ago, the Canadian graduate tweeted the stunning news that he intended to transfer from Oklahoma State.
Despite playing 26 games in two seasons for the Cowboys, while being a popular special teams player, he never received a scholarship.
Cook eventually sat out all of 2018, entering the NCAA’s new transfer portal.
A year later, it’s a decision he says was well worth it.
“I don’t have any regrets,” Cook said. “As I’ve gotten into this college football world I’ve learned it’s a big business,” Cook said. “It’s an adult business at that. I think I made the right decision moving forward for myself and my family and I couldn’t be happier right now.”
Staying silent for months, Cook took back to his Twitter on national signing day in February to announce his signing with the Aggies.
“It’s a totally different world getting that scholarship,” Cook said. “It’s amazing to feel wanted. My sophomore year at Oklahoma State I was treated like a scholarship player but I wasn’t on scholarship. To get here to New Mexico State, and be on full scholarship is amazing.”
With offers on the table from multiple Division I and Division II schools, Cook’s decision to NMSU was far from just football.
