Name: Devaughn Cooper
Weight: 180 lbs.
Class: Redshirt Senior
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
High School: Narbonne
2021 stats: Cooper caught 21 passes for 199 yards in 11 games and also played on special teams. He trailed only Courtney Jackson in receptions.
2022 projections: Cooper best fits into the short to mid-range passing game, maybe getting some snaps lined up in the slot. The departure of Taj Harris opened up more chances for him to contribute in low-yardage situations. He and Jackson should get plenty of looks early while Shrader tests his arm and waits for a chance to throw the deep ball. Devaughn is still looking for his first touchdown with the Orange; he only has one in his college career.
How’d he get here?: Originally declined playing for the Syracuse Orange and went to Arizona. After three years there, he transferred to UT-El Paso, then before the 2021 season, he transferred again and walked-on with SU.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Rated 3 stars in high school

Interesting nugget o’interest: If Narbonne sounds familiar, it’s the same high school that former Orange wide out Sean Riley went too. The two receivers actually toured the SU campus together years ago.
Let’s get a look at ya: He’s got hands!
