In July of last year, Cody Green decided he would transfer from Nebraska to Tulsa.
Now, nine months later, the quarterback will have a very familiar face on the sidelines in 2012.
Tulsa World is reporting that former Nebraska wide receiver Khiry Cooper has decided to transfer the Golden Hurricanes. Cooper was in attendance at the school’s spring game this past weekend.
Cooper, who also played baseball at the school, had decided to transfer from the Cornhuskers last month.
During his four years at Nebraska, Cooper totaled 21 receptions for 140 yards and one touchdown. Cooper will graduate from NU in May, meaning the fifth-year senior will be eligible to play immediately if he enrolls in a grad program not offered at his former school.
And, speaking of Cooper’s former/soon-to-be current teammate, Green Monday was named Tulsa’s starting QB Monday afternoon. Green will be in his first year as the Hurricanes’ starter as he sat out the 2011 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.
