Defensive end Brandon Cooper, while firmly committed to Mississippi State, continues to receive recruiting interest from several schools.
"Iowa State and New Mexico are the ones that are still on me hard," said Brandon. "Both have offered scholarships. I have thought about (officially) visiting Iowa State."
But one school stays on him harder than any of the other schools, Mississippi State.
"I talk to (MSU assistant) Coach (Brick) Haley every week," said Brandon, who is expected to play defensive end at MSU. "The other schools call me consistently, but not weekly anymore. Coach Haley calls to see how we are doing over here. How me, (cornerback) Marcus (Washington), (offensive lineman) Chris (Herrera) and (offensive lineman) Dimitri (Lott) are doing."
Marcus and Chris are also committed to MSU, while Dimitri, who is a soft verbal to Texas Tech, is also seriously considering MSU.
