Pair of signees closing on qualifying

A pair of Canes signees are closing on qualifying.

RB Graig Cooper says he needs an 18 on the ACT to qualify. He currently has a 17.

"I take it again the second weekend of June," he said. "I'm confident, I know I can get it. I also took the test a couple of weeks ago but didn't get my results back yet."
