After plenty of talk that he could head back to his one-time Florida State commitment, James Cook is sticking with the Georgia Bulldogs:
He’s the younger brother of Dalvin Cook and he had taken a surprise visit to Florida State. This came despite being committed to Georgia since October. He decommitted from Florida State after a year of being committed to the Seminoles.
New head coach Willie Taggart’s hire of Telly Lockette was expected to factor into Cook’s decision, but he stuck with the Bulldogs in the end.
The 5-foot-11, 181-pound Cook is ranked as the No. 3 running back in the country, the No. 6 recruit in the state of Florida and the No. 18 overall recruit in the country according to Rivals. He also has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Miami, Michigan, LSU, Penn State and USC among plenty of others.
