Pharoh Cooper will play his final game at South Carolina on Saturday.

The junior receiver will enter the NFL draft this spring, his father told The State newspaper in Columbia.

“He wants to ride the wave at its high point,” Glen Cooper, Pharoh’s father, told The State.

An All-SEC selection in 2014, Cooper entered the season as an All-American candidate. But sub-par quarterback play and South Carolina’s overall team struggles have hampered his year.

Cooper has caught 134 passes for 2,077 yards in his career along with 523 rushing yards and 118 rushing yards.

The 5-foot-11, 207-pound receiver is a mid-round NFL prospect according to some draft analysts, though many have not posted detailed evaluations of him. How he performs in workouts such as the NFL Combine should influence his stock arguably than most prospects.

Cooper’s absence will make it even tougher for a new coach. He would’ve been the team’s best offensive player next season.
