He’s the No. 66 weak side defensive end and the No. 20 overall player in the state of Mississippi for the class of 2021, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
Cooper chose the Bulldogs over offers from Colorado, Illinois, Ole Miss, Minnesota, Memphis and Tennessee, amongst others.
His pledge rounds out an outstanding recruiting class for Mississippi State. Mike Leach has the No. 25 class in the country and the 9 class in the SEC, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
That class is led by nine players from the state of Mississippi.
The Bulldogs also signed two other players on the defensive line in this cycle: 3-star defensive end Deonte Anderson and 3-star defensive end Tre’Von Marshall.
