Florida coach Will Muschamp and assistant Brian White traveled to Miami on Thursday to watch running back commitment Dalvin Cook in action.
The Under Armour All-American made their trip well worth it.
Cook ran for 162 yards and three touchdowns on just nine carries as Central shutout Coral Reef, 49-0. But that was just his official statline.
The 5-foot-11, 192-pounder also had three scores called back in the first quarter — a 90-yard punt return and touchdown runs of 68 and 46 yards.
Cook took an official visit to Texas over the weekend but told The Sun he is still “100 percent” committed to the Gators following the trip.
