UA assistant Mario Cristobal watched 5-star Miami (Fla.) Central RB Dalvin Cook on Saturday. Afterwards, 247Sports' Luke Stampini caught up with the UF commitment to see where he stands with recruiting-

We are just as loaded at RB as Bama IMO.
do people not watch alabama? i mean, we're only on national tv every week. we average about 3 mentions per/day on college football live. surely fans of other schools would have stumbled across our team at some point.
It's really sad. Rivals fans really have no idea how deep and talented our roster is. They are the same ones that say Bama is going to lose 2-3 games each year "just because they have to fall off sometime."
Really shows just how huge Mario Cristobol has been for us. He's all over Florida and recruits seem to love him.
Also shows why we're letting the Barn get Roc Thomas IMO. We must feel good about this guy.
Dee Hart 2.0?
This article is really funny in a way...hand picking another 5 star running back from Florida and the Gators...yawn

I think Cook is a very explosive, fast athlete which is confirmed by a 10.92 F.A.T. He's a better athlete but Roc Thomas is a better RB IMO.
Speed-Cook: He has 4.38, 10.92 homerun speed
Agility- Thomas: More natural runner that doesn't lose as much speed when changing directions. Cook seems to decelerate a bit when changing direction.
Versatility: Cook: Probably more capable of motioning into the slot or even playing some DB.
Interesting to see what transpires with the 2014 RB recruiting. Have a feeling the staff may go for the RB that is the best complement to the RBs already on the roster. Cook and Thomas are both mesomorph body-types with a good bit of lean muscle mass. If I had to fathom, I'd say Thomas has a slightly more stout build and would be able to add weight easier without it impacting his speed & agility. Both are great RB prospects in slightly different ways. Think both could excel at Bama.

If you haven't watched his film, do yourself a favor and check it out. Super explosive football player.
Measurables are only part of the equation of a prospect. If it were that simple you and many others would be employed as college scouts. Roc could run a 4.19 40 and not elevate his status in the UA staff's eyes. " Can he" vs " Can and will he" is what separates the wheat from the chaff in recruiting evaluations.

More like Alvin Kamara.
I'd love to get Cook on board with playing DB and full time return man. Unleash those open field moves and speed. His DB film excites me more than his RB film. He's a talent no doubt but watch his WRs on a lot of plays. They are demolishing the corners opening up the outside. Not to take anything away from him BUT that isn't going to translate to a SEC style of running.
You'll never achieve great things until you believe that's what's supposed to happen
