Syracuse Athletics confirmed the news Thursday morning. Cooper had been out of practice recently with an upper body injury.
Another candidate to play there could be freshman Ervin Philips, who seems to have the skill set necessary to thrive in that spot.
A wide receiver group that appeared to be deeper than any other position on the roster is now down Cooper, incoming freshman K.J. Williams who did not qualify academically, and the aforementioned players recovering from injury.
While the injured players should return as the ailments are not considered serious, Cooper leaving the program could open up another scholarship for the 2015 recruiting class.
