Cacok attended Alpharetta High School. He experienced a seven-inch growth spurt as a sophomore and subsequently joined his high school varsity basketball team. As a senior, he averaged 22 points and 12 rebounds per contest and led Alpharetta to the regional title. Cacok spent four years playing for the UNC Wilmington Seahawks and in his junior year he lead Division I in rebounding.

Though the team lost in the first round to Virginia, Cacok impressed with 12 points and 15 boards. The following season featured great turnover for the squad with the departure of coach Kevin Keatts and many key players. Cacok took on a larger scoring role as a junior, averaging 17.7 points. He also notched 13.5 rebounds per game, the top mark in Division I. At the end of the season, Cacok was selected First-Team All-CAA. He duplicated the accomplishment during his senior campaign when he averaged 15.2 points and 12.3 rebounds while shooting 59.0 percent from the field. He also led the nation with 22 double-doubles during the regular season.
