Cooper readying for January visits

LB Cedrick Cooper (6-2 204) of Lithonia, GA has taken an official visit to Arkansas. He has January official visits set with NC State on the 14th, USC on the 21st and Ole Miss on the 28th.

He's undecided about taking a fifth official visit. Clemson has been one of the other schools he's been considering.

Cooper said he talked recently with USC recruiter Lorenzo Ward, and Ward made a visit by his school before the holiday break.

Cooper does not have a current favorite. "I want to go somewhere where I'm going to play," Cooper said. "They all have basiically the same of what I'm looking for."
