Running back Dalvin Cook (No. 22), who rushed for 1,501 yards and 23 touchdowns as a junior, continues to lead the way for Florida commits. Cook was previously committed to Clemson before making the switch to UF in early April.

The Clemson Tigers added another big piece to their defensive line Tuesday as ESPN 300 four-star defensive tackle Scott Pagano (Honolulu/Moanalua) committed to head coach Dabo Swinney. Pagano joins No. 1 overall player Robert Nkemdiche (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) and No. 6 defensive end Elijah Daniel (Avon, Ind./Avon) in the Tigers’ class.

It was something of a surprise announcement, as Pagano wasn’t truly considering Clemson until late last week. He, along with his mother and sister, took an eight-day trip to visit four schools in the Southeast, though Pagano was ready to cut one of the school visits.
