2014 Miami Central running back Dalvin Cook flipped his commitment to Florida after a visit to their spring game Saturday.

The 4-star prospect, rated No. 22 overall by Rivals, committed to Clemson almost 10 months ago, but after recent visits to Gainesville, Fla., changed his position.

He told 247Sports' Florida team site he will not take any more visits.

Clemson's 2014 class now stands at four, led by five-star quarterback Deshaun Watson (Gainesville HS, Ga.), along with tight end Cannon Smith (Hammond School, S.C.), running back Jae'lon Oglesby (Daniel HS, S.C.) and offensive lineman Taylor Hearn (Williston Elko HS, S.C.).

Oh well! Wish you the best young man! At least we have some time to get back out there and land another prospect...definitely don't want anyone here who doesn't want to be! Go Tigers!

reckon he took a hard look at our casual approach to recruiting O-Line ???

This has been rumored for awhile. Who knows, he may flip 5 times before signing day. The "U" is just down the road from this young man, and Al Golden seems to be doing things the right way there. I wouldn't be surprised to see him at Miami when all is said and done.

So what! You can't take a kid seriously about anything, much less where they plan on spending the next 4 years. Until a kid is 18 years old and signs on the line, a commitment, whether verbal or written is useless. I sure do hope there's another 4 star running back out there that likes us. I would hate to think this kid changing his mind would cause us to drop our fooball program. Who cares what he flipped on or anything else for that matter! I do wish him well, although. No hard feelings toward him.

We now seem to have entered the world of loosing valuable commitments. I know this is just how recruiting goes when you are competing for the very best players in the country but we've got to figure this out. We have lost too many high quality players to UF lately. I know we are the guy on the outside but Clemson is a superior school to UF any day of the week and we need to show these recruits this fact. Perhaps the best thing we can do is win a few national championships and reestablish ourselves as the dominant football powerhouse we were in the 80's. We need more RB depth and we are going to need more speed. I thought Cook was going to be a perfect fit. Oh well, back to the drawing board. I hope our guys are not sleeping on Deshaun Watson. He is the jewel of that recruiting class. We need him most of all.
