Dynamic athlete Dalvin Cook committed to Clemson early on, but that hasn't stopped schools from recruiting him. The big play tailback has done a little bit of everything for the Miami (Fla.) Central Rockets who head into their bye week 3-2.

He is in the process of setting up an unofficial visit with head coach Dabo Swinney and is trying to get there to take in the gameday atmosphere.
Although, he appears solid in his pledge calling Clemson his "dream offer" and citing "the family environment" as one of the reasons he pulled the trigger, Swinney has his work cut out for him as Florida, Florida State, and Louisville are still pursuing him. All three schools are trying to make a push with the 2014 star.
The Tigers offense and the way utilize their backs in all phases of the game is something that stands out to Cook. He remarked, "I watched C.J. Spiller a lot when they played Miami and I liked how they got him the ball."
Clemson is getting an excellent athlete that is a threat to score on offense, defense, and special teams. He has Spiller-like ability and looks to follow in the same footsteps as the former Tiger standout.
