"Clemson, LSU, Georgia, USC, Florida State, Florida, Alabama, and some other schools have offered me," Dalvin Cook told Scout. "I am not sure exactly how many I have, but my coach probably knows. I know I have a lot though."
And he should.
Cook is an elite athlete with speed to burn out of Miami Central High School. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound rising junior is using those offers as motivation.
"It feels good to be getting the attention I am getting in recruiting and I am working hard to take advantage of it. I am working hard everyday to get better and I think I am doing all I can to be the best I can be."
If the offers and personal goals do not drive him enough, then his teammate will.
"Playing with an elite guy like Joseph Yearby (2014 RB committed to Florida State) only makes me better on and off the field. He is a powerful back, I am a fast back, and we help each other a lot."
Yearby is committed to an in-state school early on and Cook could be committed in the near future too.
"Clemson is my leader and I will be up there soon (there now). I will be there for their camp and I really see myself fitting well there. I like their offense, I like how they do things, and I am excited about getting up there.
"After Clemson, Georgia is number two, and I may visit them in July too. They really produce running backs, they know how to get running backs into the NFL, and I like their program too.
"I could make a decision this summer. I want to get up to Clemson to check it out, see a couple of schools, and just see what happens."
Cook is an athlete that can do so much on the football and he will help any school he chooses on the next level. He could play defensive back on the next level if he wanted, but he really wants the ball in his hands.
"I am a game-changer and that is what I feel makes me special in the backfield," said the future Scout300 prospect. "If it is fourth down and we need 22 yards to get a first down, I want the ball because I feel I can get us those yards. I just get the ball and go. I do not mess around, but I feel I just make a lot of plays."
Stay tuned to Scout for the latest on one of the top overall prospects in the state of Florida.
Could Cook commit early?
