Dalvin Cook: “I’m solid to Florida”

Florida commitment Dalvin Cook (5-11, 192, Miami, FL Central) was in Tallahassee to visit Florida State for the second of his official visits. While you never want a commitment taking visits, particularly to your arch-rival, Cook claims a “good” visit hasn’t swayed his commitment to the Gators.

“I’m 100% committed to Florida,” Cook said. “The visit to Florida State was good but I’m tired from the weekend.”

The fact that Cook was in Tallahassee isn’t a great sign but while he was at Florida State he talked to a familiar voice that Florida fans should like.

“I actually talked to coach T-Rob while I was in Tallahassee for my official to Florida State,” Cook said. “Everything is good with us and he knew I wanted to take my visits.”

When asked if he would return to Tallahassee for another visit Cook responded with “No, I’m not going back to Florida State for a visit.”

While Cook doesn’t have plans to visit Florida State again he will, in fact, see the Seminoles play again this year, only this time in Gainesville.

“I will visit Florida for the FSU game,” Cook said. “It will be an unofficial visit. I have already been up to Florida so many times so I don’t know if I will take an official to Florida or not. I will just visit unofficially a couple of times probably.”

This weekend when Florida takes on Georgia in the unofficial “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party,” prospects will be watching including Cook who has some thoughts on the game.

“Florida has got to get it done,” Cook said. “ I would probably spread the ball out a little and open up the offense like from the shotgun. I would throw the ball early and get the playmakers involved early in the game. Georgia has been down lately so I think it will be a defensive game this weekend.”
