Syracuse, NY — Syracuse Football wide receiver Devon Cooper will play his final game in an orange jersey.
Cooper plans to pursue an NFL career after playing in the Pinstripe Bowl, he shared on Twitter Saturday.
Cooper, who has played seven seasons of college football since 2016, had no qualifications left. He stopped at the University of Arizona and the University of Texas at El Paso before settling on SU.
“This college trip was unforgettable,” Cooper wrote on Twitter. “The many obstacles I faced in graduating from three Division I colleges were very difficult. This journey has taught me countless lessons. A child without a child has grown, matured, and experienced many things across the country.”
Cooper has totaled 50 career receptions for Orange so far for 575 total yards and 3 touchdowns. After Courtney Jackson enters the transfer portal and lands in Arkansas, he becomes the most senior receiver to appear in the Pinstripe Bowl in Syracuse.
Cooper is the fifth SU player to officially declare for the 2023 NFL Draft, following teammates Chris Elmore, Garrett Williams, Sean Tucker and Matthew Bergeron. He is the only person in the group to appear in SU’s bowl games.
Syracuse will face Minnesota in the Pinstripe Bowl on December 29th at 2pm.
