Miami (Fla.) Northwestern wide receiver Amari Cooper traveled to Florida State to participate in the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp. The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder left Tallahassee with another offer to his name.
"Before I went to the camp Eddie Gran was always telling me I had a scholarship there, but after the camp I sat down with Coach Jimbo (Fisher) and he was telling me how much they would love to have me and how much it would mean to them if I went to their school," Cooper said.
Cooper said that he believes the Seminoles 'definitely' want him as a wide receiver. During the camp, he worked with the wide receivers and enjoyed the competition he went against.

"Camp was very intense," Cooper said. "It was fun. I got a chance to spend time with the receivers coach (Lawrence Dawsey) and I got a good vibe up there. Coach Dawsey was real cool. He was fun to be around."
While Cooper just had an opportunity to meet Coach Dawsey at Florida State, he has been in regular contact with a member of the staff for months.
"I have been talking with Coach Gran for a while now," Cooper said. "He has just been telling me since I first got in contact with him that I had a chance to be a Seminole, even before he offered me. He has always wanted me to make sure I kept in contact with them."
With his offer list nearly into double-digits, Cooper said that five of the schools that have pulled the trigger have separated themselves from everybody else.
"I now have nine offers," Cooper said. "Florida State is part of my top five. I'd say my top five are Florida State, Miami, Ohio State, West Virginia, and Wake Forest. Florida State and Miami are at the top. I like the tradition there (at Miami), everybody wants to be a part of that."
At this time, Cooper claims no timetable for making a decision.
