It was a relatively tough season for the Oregon State Beavers in 2013-2014, and on Monday, things got a bit worse for Craig Robinson and company, as rising sophomore guard Hallice Cooke will reportedly transfer from the program.

Multiple outlets are now reporting (first reported by Alex Kline above) that Cooke will leave the program, although his future destination is still unknown at this stage. After being a relatively unimpressive, 2-star recruit in the class of 2013, Cooke had an impressive debut at OSU, averaging more than 8 points a game for the Beavers, and with the top four players leaving the team due to graduation or early defection, it was a solid lock that Cooke was in for more focus.
Still, he must have seen reason to seek a new place to continue his career, and it will be interesting to see where he lands. Barring a hardship waiver that is not projected at this stage, Cooke will be forced to sit out a full season as a division 1 transfer, but when he gets to his new locale, the 6-foot-3 guard will have three years of eligibility remaining.
