We joke about fluff pieces but him trying to calm the boards nerves about losing that kid by saying hey we just need to win here!From oneof the Illinois 247 insiders who believes Cooper will ultimately stay home -
Response: He told them the Illinois assumption is overblown and that he loves Miami. Straight from his mouth.
I do think he’ll visit there and elsewhere. I also don’t think the Illinois talk came for no reason. And many people around Trinity and Illinois have said for the last few months that Mookie will ultimately go to Illinois if they win this year. This is a reasons illinois thinks it might be best if he waits to announce because the reaction to him liking Illinois and people questioning why gets overwhelming for him.
I’m not changing my CB fwiw because i think this is going to be a long play that could be a roller coaster ride.
Mookie will be ours as long as we recruit him
