Camm Cooper piled up a bunch of yardage as a junior last season and, this spring, has racked up a ton of mileage.
After a recent string of college visits, the four-star quarterback from Lehi, Utah, hit the road again this past week, visiting Georgia and Tennessee for the first time during the recruiting process. He kicked off the southern swing by landing a big-time offer from the Bulldogs and told Scout.com that both SEC programs are in serious contention following successful stops.
"It was great meeting with coach (Jim) Chaney at Georgia and hear about his past," Cooper told Scout.com. "I think all eight of the past guys he's coached are playing in the NFL, so that's really huge for me and what I'm looking for. I want to be developed and that's a coach that could do that for me.
"Right now, they've got a pro-style offense and only have two guys on scholarship in Jake Fromm and Jacob Eason, so if I'd go there I'd already be up there on the depth chart with a chance to compete. I've been talking to coach Chaney off and on, and he's told me for a long time they're real interested so it was cool to get out there. Coach Chaney told me he's planning to come out to Utah in May, so I'm looking forward to that. We'll see if I can get back out there, depending on other trips and my schedule."
From there, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound prospect was able to get out to see what the Volunteers had in store and he wasn't disappointed.
"I really loved that visit," Cooper said of Tennessee. "It's the best of the best there and the fans are great. Being in that stadium was something cool to be a part of. They had like 40,000 fans there for a spring game in the rain, so it was crazy to see. It looks like they're taking two quarterbacks this year and they've told me they're looking for a pure passer. They've said I'm the most accurate passer they've seen on film after watching everybody. I'm a thrower than can run, not a runner that can throw, and they feel that's a good fit for their offense.
"Coach (Mike) Canales is coming out to see me here Tuesday and it's huge to know that even though we were just together, he'll come out to see me practice. Obviously we won't be able to talk but it's great just knowing he'll be there to watch me."
Cooper also visited Arizona State, Boise State and Washington State recently. He said the Cougars are expected to swing through Utah this coming week as well. He doesn't have a timeframe for a decision yet but knows he'd like to get it done by the end of the summer. Louisville and Mississippi are two others that could potentially draw looks in the coming months.
Cooper, who is up to 16 scholarship offers, completed 64 percent of his pass attempts for 4,059 yards and 38 touchdowns in 12 games as a junior last season, and has earned an invitation to the prestigious Elite 11 Finals this summer.
