Dalvin Cook flips to Florida

Dalvin Cook flips to Florida

Dalvin Cook visited Florida last week and came back Saturday for the spring game. The former Clemson running back commit had been liking Florida more and more and decided to officially commit to the Gators Saturday afternoon. The 5-foot-11, 197-pound back breaks it down here.

Dalvin Cook had a great Saturday at Florida with his dad, uncle, and brother. After the scrimmage, Cook went to eat with his family before returning to talk to Head Coach Will Muschamp. While in Muschamp's office, the Miami Central (Miami, FL) star officially committed to the Gators.

"He sat down with me, my dad, my brother and my uncle. He just kept it real with me, he said they want me at the school and it'd be the best fit for me. The last time I came up, I felt that vibe myself. This time, I just pulled the trigger," Cook said.

"I'm very excited, I'm very excited."

Cook said he talked to his family about committing to Florida at lunch before meeting with Coach Muschamp.

"I told my uncle, ‘I feel it, I'm going to do it.'" And he said to do what's best for me," he said.

The four-star running back sees Florida as the perfect fit for him and thinks he can be a difference-maker for the Gators.

"They're changing their offense to a pro-style. I feel like that's the best to help me get ready for the NFL and it will help me in the future," he said.

"I'm going to be able to bring something that the program needed as a home-run-hitter back. That's something that Florida needed and I think I can be that guy."

Cook formerly committed to Clemson before flipping to Florida, but he said this time it's different.

"It's solid, I think that will be it for my recruiting," he said.

"I'm all about the Gators now."
