    Spiveys tweet seems to convey he has chosen a school other than what she had preferred.

    "@ZachAbolverdi: Per an ESPN spokesperson, there's no set policy on recruits announcing at the @AllAmericaGame. Dalvin Cook is able to recommit to UF on air."

    I wish it sounded like UF but I'm thinking Miami just because they were down there and around him an awfully lot. Could be that I am misinterpreting but it seems he didn't want to meet with our staff and we were the third school he signed financial assistance paperwork with, not the first. I'm speculating that his grandmother wanted him to get out of miami and that's why it wasn't necessarily "her choice".

    Please make me look silly tonight Dalvin.

    Dalvin said that the school he chooses is the one who showed the most loyalty, trust, and had the best relationship with that particular school/staff/coach or whatever. He also said the school he chose is the one that DID NOT bug him when his recruitment got hot in December. He said the school that he isn't going to just let all the action fly and didn't stress it. Here's my opinion on this...

    He said that Miami came by or contacted him every single day and was selling him on something new every time. He's not going there. No way.

    Also, FSU was on him pretty good trying hard to get in his ear for him to flip. Meanwhile, our staff made approx 1-2 visits down there (know we saw him once) in between the week of FSU game and Dec 16. Also, he has a great relationship with Trob and champ. Our staff preaches family, loyalty, trust and all those things. Trob is a major factor here for these guys down south and players love him. He said that he is not gonna call the schools before his announcement. It's one thing to troll fans. It's another altogether to completely disrespect Muschamp and Trob and I do not see that happening. His g/f loves the Gators and his buddies are commited to Florida. IF he does go somewhere else this will be the biggest troll job in recruiting history. This guy is coming to FLORIDA. Cant wait!

    Florida: 65%
    Florida State: 30%
    Miami: 5%

    That's my take. Won't be surprised if it's FSU, but I would be surprised if it's Miami.

    Cookception. He's trolling on so many levels now, he doesn't even know what reality is.

    I almost feel a little bad for the guy. With all the excessive Gator chomps this week, if he flips, he's going to go down in infamy. I really don't mind - it's his life and he can choose to go where he wishes, but if he's doing this for kicks, it says something quite unsavoury about his maturity, IMO.

    That's the thing. While it does bum me out, flipping to FSU is not the thing that really bothers me. It's going out of your way to disrespect Muschamp and T-Rob, what, just for attention? Very immature.

    Not to say that's the case (yet), but either he's going to honor his commitment or he's going to appear to be very immature.

    This really is a case of: If he comes here, great. It looks like we got a kid who is loyal and respected the situation. If we don't get him, then we're probably better off for it. I don't mean that in terms of the player that he is, but if he's doing all of this stuff just to screw with a bunch of coaches that spent countless hours trying to help him with his future, than I know that isn't the kind of guy I want on this team. It just isn't.

    Rest easy, Gator fans. The buck doesn't stop here with recruiting, so just enjoy this particular ride while it lasts.

    Said it 2 weeks ago and got called a troll... say it today and you have inside info. Life is about choices, some good, some not so good.
