Iowa forward Tyler Cook has been the focus of transfer rumors in recent weeks, but the sophomore ended speculation of at least one team on Friday.

Cook, a St. Louis native, averaged 15.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game this season with the Hawkeyes. But a thread on the Rivals Missouri message board,, started circulating claiming Cook was considering a move to Missouri.

While Cook eventually ended the speculation Friday, he was vague about his future after Thursday's Big Ten tournament loss to Michigan, effectively ending Iowa's season.
