In his 2012 debut with Miami Central, the Rockets fell, 35-3.

"My team tried to utilize me a lot. I tried to be big in the return game, tried to set up the offense. Coach is trying to use me a lot this year," Cook said, last Friday night.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound prospect attended the Clemson game against Auburn on Saturday in the Georgia Dome.

It may not be his final Clemson game of the season.

"I'll go up there for a couple of games," Cook said.

There are no plans in place for which weekends he plans to head up to Tigertown.

"Coach Dabo [Swinney] and I haven't set it up yet. We're trying to get there," he said.

At Clemson, Cook sees an opportunity for earn early playing time.

"I could get up there early and play. They could utilize me at receiver, give it to me out of the backfield," he said.

Several schools remain in pursuit, despite his commitment to the Tigers. Florida and Florida State, along with Ohio State, are the main ones, right now.

"Everybody, you know how that goes. I told them that I'm all in," Cook said.

Florida is pushing him the hardest.

"It's a speed program. They say I'd fit in," Cook said.

As a sophomore, Cook had 90 carries for 900 yards and nine touchdowns. Top Stories
