Top RB Prospect Cook Out for Noles' Spring Practice
"I've good got news and bad news. Which one do you want first?"
"The good news!"
"You received your BCS National Championship rings last night and they're freakin' awesome."
"YES! We've been waiting forever to get these babies."
"Also, the prized gem of your 2014 recruiting class hurt himself and won't be able to practice this spring."
Two things: I'm obviously a huge nerd. It's also the offseason.
Yes, Florida State did finally get its long-awaited championship rings last night. But it also suffered a small (hopefully) setback when five-star running back (No. 2 in the country at his position) Dalvin Cook recently tore his labrum falling up stairs in the weight room.
“He had a tremendous offseason, he acted like he’d been there for three years,” Fisher said, according to the Orlando Sentinel. “It’s a shame, but he’ll get to be in every meeting. That way he can have the surgery now and will have over three months of rehab and will be full go in the fall.”
Cook, who rushed for 1,452 yards and 21 touchdowns during his junior season in high school, chose the Seminoles over his hometown Miami Hurricanes. His highly sought-after talent allowed him to immediately vie for playing time this spring, fighting for position with rising senior Karlos Williams, and sophomores Mario Pender and Ryan Green.
Florida State will start its spring session on Wednesday.
