After his official visit to Florida State this weekend, James Cook said that his decision will come down to the two schools he has been committed to at one time: FSU and Georgia.

The four-star running back, ranked as the No. 31 player in the 2018 recruiting class, No. 3 running back and No. 6 player from the state of Florida, is set to make his decision Wednesday night and participate in the early signing period.

Cook, who FSU fans may know as the younger brother of Dalvin Cook, committed first to FSU back in March of 2016 shortly after visiting Tallahassee for Junior Day. After staying committed for over a year, Cook opened his recruitment again in July of this year, decommitting from FSU after the Seminoles signed three running backs in their 2017 recruiting class.

In October, Cook committed to Georgia after taking his official visit there in September and has had little action in his recruitment since. However, the hiring of Willie Taggart and his hiring of Telly Lockette, who was the head coach at Cook’s high school, Miami Central, from 2008-2012, coaching the likes of Devonta Freeman and James’ brother Dalvin, convinced him to take a visit.

Cook’s decision to take an official visit to FSU this weekend, his first OV since September, was a last-minute choice.

“I just wanted to give them an opportunity to redeem themselves,” Cook said of FSU and its new coaching staff. “We’ll see on [Wednesday].”
