The UF women's basketball camp over the weekend proved beneficial to more than just the athletes involved.

Coach Amanda Butler received her third commitment of the 2012 class on Sunday when Clarksville High School (Adams, Tenn.) shooting guard Chandler Cooper gave her pledge to the program.

Cooper became the third Clarksdale team member to pledge to an SEC school, following teammates Jessy Ward (Mississippi State) and Bashaara Graves (Tennessee).

The 5-foot, 11-inch Cooper earned a reputation as a sharpshooter for the Lady Wildcats. The daughter of a local high school coach, Cooper puts up at least 200 shots a day and has risen from an unranked prospect to ESPN's No. 30 athlete in the class in just three years.
