James Cook, No. 3 RB In 2018, Announces Commitment

A top running back recruit is off the board.

One of the top running backs in the country revealed his college choice on Thursday night.

James Cook, a 4-star running back from Florida, took to Twitter to unveil his decision.

According to 247Sports' Composite Rankings, Cook is the No. 3 running back in the 2018 recruiting class and the No. 5 player from the state of Florida.

He had offers from some of the nation's top programs.

Cook, the younger brother of former Florida State star Dalvin Cook, decommitted from the Seminoles this summer.

It's a huge get for Kirby Smart and company, and now the team has two of the top three running backs in the country from the 2018 class. 5-star running back Zamir White committed earlier this year, as did the nation's No. 1 overall recruit, quarterback Justin Fields.
