"I can't wait to start building relationships at college, and I'm really thankful for the opportunity to play soccer at the next level. Not everyone gets a chance to keep playing at the college level."
Cooke will do his best on the pitch, but says his focus will remain on achieving good grades and being a positive force on the college's campus, both in and out of soccer.
"I'm going to miss everything about being a Raider. All the players out on the field are my best friends. My coaches are great guys, I can't say enough about them. They invested the time and effort to give me the qualities I have today," Cooke stated.
