Video: Duke’s Quinn Cook convinces girls he is J. Cole


Duke Blue Devils point guard Quinn Cook is a national champion. The success of Duke this season should have led to some increased notoriety for the 22 year old, but it turns out that he is more recognizable because of somebody he resembles.

If you didn’t know, Quinn Cook looks a lot like recording artist J. Cole.

So, when he shows up to a mall in Durham, it doesn’t take much for him to convince young women that he is actually J. Cole. It’s a pretty admirable scheme.

Cook was hanging out with his friend, former NBA and Duke guard Nolan Smith, when they started to record his interaction with fans.

Immediately, two women yell, “J. Cole! J.Cole!”

After the warm welcome, Cook busts out and starts singing a verse of J. Cole’s hit single, “Apparently.”

You can check out the video below.

Quinn Cook’s vocals still need some work.
