Millbrook wide receiver Corey Cooper lives just ten minutes from the NC State campus so he knows what the Pack is all about.
Last year the 6-0, 185-pound wide out made several unofficial visits to NC State. He has built a good relationship with the coaching staff and admits he's feeling good about the Wolfpack.
"It's been a little while since I've visited but I've been there a bunch," Cooper said this week.
"I'm pretty comfortable with them. I've been able to meet all their coaches and I've really liked it a lot. We'll see what happens. Coach (Dana) Bible has been recruiting me and I feel good about him."
Cooper will be at NC State this weekend and he's anxious to reconnect with the coaches and see what they're saying now.
"I'm going there Saturday by myself," he said. "It's not for a junior day or anything. Our girls basketball team is in the state championship and that's at NC State. I'm going to go up there and look at the campus. I want to meet with the coaches and just watch the game."
Cooper has offers from NC State, North Carolina, Tennessee, Wake Forest South Carolina, Oklahoma State, Kentucky, Iowa State and Illinois. He expects that offer list to continue to grow.
One school that hasn't offered is a school he would love to hear from.
"I like Clemson a lot," he admitted. "I've been a fan of them but I didn't get offered by them. I just love Clemson. I've never visited but I just love the colors and a bunch of other recruits I talk to always say they love Clemson. I've loved them since I was little. They tell me it's a great place."
Cooper says he wouldn't mind putting recruiting behind him sometime over the summer. He wants to enjoy his senior year without the stress of the process.
"I probably want to make my decision before the season starts. I want to focus on being a better leader, getting my academics down and trying to win a state championship," he said.
This past fall Cooper accounted for 400 receiving yards with six touchdowns.
