I believe we missed this from earlier or our memory skipped a beat (likely the latter).

From July 2020: “Ukranian big man is a very intriguing prospect with a nice long frame and very good academic marks (3.5 GPA). Physical rebounder can score with touch around the cup.”

Western Oregon University Coach Wes Pifer touting one of his newcomers: “(Elihu) Cobb is a 6-foot-9 forward/center that will transfer to WOU as a junior after competing at the College of the Sequoias for the past two seasons in Visalia, Calif. He played in 30 games this past season, averaging nearly a double-double with 11.3 points and 9.1 rebounds per game. He shot well from the field, connecting on nearly 54 percent. Throughout the season he reached double-figures in scoring 18 times with a season-high 23 points against Santa Rosa. Cobb added to that 13 double-digit rebounding games, pulling down a season-high 17 also against Santa Rosa. In addition, Cobb collected 10 double-doubles in points and rebounds. He was part of a team that went 24-6 in 2019-20, picking up Northern Regional wins over Butte and Yuba to advance to the CCCAA Championships Quarterfinals before the season was cancelled due to Covid-19. As a true freshman in 2018-19, Cobb played in 26 games and averaged 3.5 points and 3.0 rebounds per game. He reached double-figures in scoring on four different occasions that included a season-high 15 points against Cerro Coso. Cobb pulled down double-figures in rebounds twice, with a season-high 13 versus Reedley that also went for a double-double. College of the Sequoias went 22-9 in 2018-19 advancing to the same spot in which they did this past season reaching the CCCAA State Quarterfinals before falling just short to Citrus. Originally from Santa Maria, Calif., Cobb competed at Saint Joseph High School where he put together a strong senior season that included 13.7 points per game, 10.2 rebounds, 2.9 blocks and 1.2 steals per game in 28 games played.
“Elihu off the bat brings us much needed athleticism on the baseline and rim protection. He put up impressive numbers throughout a successful campaign at College of the Sequoias. His best basketball is certainly ahead of him and we’re thankful it will be at Western,” Pifer said.
