Four-star tight end Octavious Cooley saw his high school season come to a close over the weekend after participating in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star game in Hattiesburg, Miss., and he’ll now focus his attention on official visits.
That should include a quartet of SEC programs.
“I’m most definitely going to take an official visit to Alabama, LSU and Mississippi State,” Cooley told SEC Country. “And to Ole Miss, of course.”
Cooley, who has been committed to the Rebels since last December, said each of three aforementioned schools continue to pursue him despite his commitment to Ole Miss.
“I’ll keep them in mind,” Cooley said of the three programs. “They’re always going to stay in mind.”
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound senior from Laurel, Miss., maintained Ole Miss remains at the top of his list and he has no intention of wavering on his commitment. He’s unofficially visited Oxford a handful of times since he announced his pledge.
As a senior, Cooley recorded 46 receptions for 1,062 yards and nine touchdowns, according to stats from 247Sports.com.
He is rated as the No. 8 prospect in Mississippi.
