Clemson's loyalty stands out to Cook

Clemson picked up a commitment from Dalvin Cook in the summer of 2012 and this elite back talks about that commitment, if he is looking around, and more here.

Dalvin Cook took a trip to Clemson last summer and he decided on that visit that he wanted to be a Tiger. Schools have continued to recruit Cook since then, so where does he stand now?

"I am still committed to Clemson," Cook told Scout. "I am solid to to them and I plan on getting back up there sometime soon."

When asked what is keeping him solid to the Tigers, Cook said, "It is all about their loyalty to me and my bond with the coaches there. I like how they have kept recruiting me, how they still want me, and how the coaches recruit me. I feel good about my commitment to Clemson."

Cook sounds like a strong Clemson commitment right now, but he will likely visit some other schools before he signs his letter of intent.

"I am probably going to take some official visits. You only get to do this one time and I want to get out and see some different places. I did not get to any college games last season, so I have not been out that much. I just want to take a few visits, but Clemson is the school for me right now," said the 5-foot-11, 190 pound play-maker out of Miami Central (Fla.).

Two schools that could get a visit from the Scout100 prospect are Florida and Louisville. He has interest in each.

"Florida is all about speed and I like that. They are looking for play-makers, I like their style, and they are a top program.

"I am looking at Louisville because I like Charlie Strong and I know a lot of players on his team. They have a lot of guys from my area, they have guys from my school, and I want to give them a look."

Cook is being pursued by schools across the country because of his speed. He helped Miami Central win a state title in 2012 with 1,500 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns on the ground. He is a big play waiting to happen.

"I have speed and that is my biggest strength. I feel I can past anyone and if I have a little gap to run through, then I feel I can make something happen. Schools like my speed, they always talk about that with me."

Cook is currently the No. 10 running back in the country. Top Stories
