The first half of the contact period is in the books, and Florida staff saw several notable recruits over the past week.
None were more important than running back commit Dalvin Cook, who has signed financial aid agreements with UF, FSU and UM. He planned to make a final decision this weekend but has pushed it back to the Under Armour All-America Game.
Following his team’s playoff victory Saturday, Cook told the Miami Herald he hasn’t decommitted because “Florida is still in my heart right now. I’m still a Gator and that’s my school.”
The UF coaches also visited the following commits — quarterback Will Grier, athlete J.C. Jackson, receiver Ermon Lane, tight end DeAndre Goolsby, offensive lineman Nolan Kelleher, defensive tackle Khairi Clark and cornerbacks Duke Dawson, Chris Lammons and Quincy Wilson.
