RB Dalvin Cook Profile
Since committing to the Tigers in June, Cook's kept himself occupied with football.
"I've been working hard, staying in the weight room. Now, we're going through camp," he recently told CUTigers.
Miami Central is preparing for their Aug. 31 season opener at Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga.
"Every day, we try to make it like a game situation and go at it and things like that," Cook said.
He'll be matched up against several fellow Clemson commitments, Robert Nkemdiche, Wayne Gallman and David Kamara.
"I thought about it, going against some of my teammates. I'm just going to leave it all out on the field," Cook said.
He added, "It should be a good game. With some of the playmakers we have on our team, we should be able to pull the victory out."
Back in June during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp, Cook and Gallman were able to spend time with one another.
"We were trying to get to know each other better," Cook said.
A day after the Grayson and Miami Central game, Cook "most definitely" plans to attend Clemson's showdown with Auburn in the Georgia Dome.
Cook thinks sees big things for the Tigers in 2012.
"With them being a team with so many players coming back, they should be a good team. They should win the ACC this year again," he said.
As for his current team, Cook believes Miami Central will be back in the 6A state title after falling in last year's championship, 40-31 to Armwood.
"Losing that game, that brought some motivation. We can use that. Bring it up to some of the players. The last time we were out, we lost, so we've just got to work hard," Cook said.
Cook had 90 carries for 900 yards and nine touchdowns as a sophomore.
