Cook likes Hogs run-game

Dalvin Cook is committed to Florida but has been taking his official visits. This weekend, the four-star running back visited Arkansas to see the Hogs welcome Auburn. Auburn took the win, but Cook still left Fayetteville impressed. Get the latest on the Miami (Fla.) Miami Central standout here.

Dalvin Cook enjoyed his visit to Arkansas and was especially impressed with the way they use their running backs in the game.

"Even though they lost, they're rushed for like 250-yards. The turnovers really messed them up, but they controlled the whole game. From my perspective, they give the running backs the ball and let the running backs determine the game," he said.

"I thought they gave me something to think about with how they give the running backs the ball and how their offense is really coming along with the new coaches from Wisconsin and how they used Montee Ball there and all of that."

The South Florida standout spent some time with some other South Florida guys on the Arkansas roster: Alex Collins, Denver Kirkland, and De'Andre Coley, who was Cook's host. Coley had a lot of good things to say about the program and where it's headed.

"He was just telling me it's a great place, they take care of their guys. They're in the process of being built up from the new coaches and it's a program that's going to be good in the future," he said.

Cook was also able to speak with the Razorbacks coaches.

"I got to talk to all the coaches, and everybody gave me a different message, but I really got to spend the most time with my position coach (Joel Thomas) and we just went over some plays that would be best for me and we watched film," Cook said.

Cook says his pledge to Florida is solid right now. He was able to catch some highlights of the Gators in their loss to Georgia yesterday.

"I just feel like they got behind early and the offense got going a little late and they couldn't get back in the game," he said.

"I just feel like we gotta get more offensive plays in to get the playmakers the ball. On the defensive side of the ball, we're good."

Cook still plans to take his official visit to Florida last.
