The recruiting saga of Dalvin Cook took another interesting turn Wednesday as the Florida commitment told Rivals.com he has signed financial aid agreements with Florida State and Miami.
On Thursday, Cook signed one with UF as well.
The grant-in-aid agreement, adopted by the NCAA in October, allows Division I schools to sign early enrollees such as Cook to scholarship papers.
The agreement gives Cook a guaranteed scholarship and, more importantly, unlimited contact with coaches. Schools can also acknowledge the signee publicly, which Miami has done.
However, a financial aid agreement does not bind a prospect to a school like a letter of intent, and midyear graduates can sign multiple agreements.
Last week Cook called Florida State his leader and scheduled an official visit with the Hurricanes, and these latest developments are another sign of just how shaky his pledge is with the Gators. He still claims to be committed to Florida, which The Sun reported Tuesday, but his recent actions suggest otherwise.
The Under Armour All-American plans to make a final decision Dec. 14 at the Class 6A state championship game.
