USC was the leader for WR Corey Cooper of Raleigh back in early April. But he visited Louisville and later committed to the Cardinals in July.
"I visited Louisville and at the time I thought it was a beautiful place and the coaches were unbelievable," Cooper said. "But Louisville is too far. It's 10 hours away."
So, Cooper decommitted from Louisville last week. Saturday he talked with USC recruiters Joe Robinson and GA Mangus and learned his offer is still on the table.
"They were about to go into a meeting so we'll talk more this week," Cooper said. "We just talked about my visit and they said they would love to have me. They don't have any receiver commitments so if I commit I would be the first."
Cooper will take an official visit to USC and it likely will take place on the Gamecocks' major recruiting weekend of January 18th. He said he will also look at North Carolina, NC State, East Carolina and Wake Forest and will visit each of them. He does not have a favorite at this point.
Cooper finished his career as his school's all time leading receiver. This season he said he had about 500 yards receiving and 7 touchdowns.
