It's been am exciting few weeks for Shreveport (La.) Calvary Baptist receiver Khiry Cooper. As a center fielder for his school's baseball team, he took home the state title with his teammates this past weekend. On the recruiting front, he's added an offer from a Big 12 school.
"It feels pretty good," Cooper said. "It was a close game.
"With recruiting, that's going pretty good too. I had an LSU coach come by yesterday to the school. Then I got an offer from Nebraska earlier this week, so it's going pretty well."

The new offer from Nebraska is now on the table along with ones from Arkansas, Louisiana Tech, and Tulsa. Cooper says he's not ready to name any favorites.
This summer, he has camp plans including stops at LSU, Florida, Florida State and baseball camps. Cooper adds that he'd like to play both sports in college.
"I like baseball a little more than football actually," Cooper said. "I'm not sure what my options are. People have been saying I might be drafted, but I'm probably just going to attend college anyway."
Schools such as LSU, Nebraska, and Arkansas have all talked with Cooper about being able to play both sports. He says that he'll make his commitment and choose a school later on this fall.
"It will probably be sometime during the season," he said about a commitment. "I'll do it when I have all of my offers and I know about everything."
