"I visited Georgia this weekend and committed to them," said running back Michael Cooper. "It is close to home and my mom and sister really like them. I have been researching the Dawgs for a while and I really think they are turning the thing around. I just enjoyed everything and I can not wait to play for coach Richt."
Cooper is one of the South's hottest running back prospects. He rushed for 2,350 yards and 38 scores this season. Cooper, 6-1 and 215 pounds, plays for Sylvania (Ga.) Screven County. Cooper committed to Georgia over GT, Maryland, Florida, Clemson, and LSU.
