RB Sets UM Visit

Graig Cooper has been running wild on opposing defenses so far this season. He's rushed for over 1,300 yards and 15 touchdowns.

"I wanted to have a big senior year and so far it's been happening that way," Cooper said. "Teams try to stack up and take me out but it hasn't happened. I've been having lots of fun."

The Memphis (Tn.) Melrose star running back continues to get recruited heavily by programs all around the South.

"My phone seems to never stop ringing at night," he said. "If it's not one coach, it's another. They're doing a good job of keeping in close contact, that's for sure."

Two teams, however, seem to be making more of an effort than the others at this point.

"I'd have to say Mississippi and Oklahoma State are coming at me the hardest," he said. "They both started on me early on and they never let up. I like both of them a lot and I'll be taking visits to both of them."

There are others still on the list, including the University of Miami.

"Miami's still calling each week," he said. "I enjoy talking to them. Anytime a school with that kind of tradition is talking to you, you better listen. I've been there before and (Tyrone) Moss is having a good year. I think I'm going to Miami in the middle of December (for a visit). I may also check out Alabama."

Graig Cooper, a full academic qualifier, said he expects to take all of his visits before making a final decision.

"I'm just waiting it out," he said. "I wanna make sure I make the best choice. I wanna focus on helping our team through the playoffs and then take some visits. I might not decide until signing day."
