Cooper adding offers, takes trip

After receiving a scholarship offer early on in his junior season from Arkansas, Shreveport (La.) Calvary Baptist receiver Khiry Cooper has added several more.
The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder says that Louisiana Tech and Tulsa have both offered up to this point. He continues to receive mail from other schools such as Florida, LSU, Alabama, Clemson, Kansas State, Nebraska, and others. He also has an early top four.
"My favorite right now would probably be between Florida, Arkansas, LSU, and Tulsa," Cooper said. "Tulsa, I like the area in Oklahoma and I used to live there in Tulsa. Florida, I also have family there and I just love the area. I like LSU because it's close and it feels like home.
"I just liked being at Arkansas, it felt like a second home."
The latest trip for Cooper was to an in-state school this past weekend.
"Actually, it was this past Sunday, I went to LSU," Cooper said. "That went pretty good. I talked with their new receivers coach and he showed me around. He told me they'd be recruiting me hard and I think they're going to come watch me in May."
Between his sophomore and junior seasons, Cooper has put together more than 1,000 receiving yards and 26 touchdowns. He says this year he's working hard to win a state championship and working on both baseball and football, two sports he plans to play in college.
For now, he's not rushing a commitment.
"Probably, right now, I feel I'm probably going to wait," he said. "That's how I'm feeling right now, but I'm just taking things as they come."
