Why NC State?  “I chose NC State because it felt like home.  The city of Raleigh, the coaching staff... I’ve been on the phone with them probably two hours a day here recently just getting to know them more and more. 

“I have a really good relationship with the coaches -- coach Garrison and coach Doeren.”

Who Did He Pick NC State Over? Syracuse, Richmond, Charlotte

IPS Take On Cooper- The Pack has had a lot of success recently recruiting players with the makeup and recruiting profile of Cooper... think Tony Adams, Josh Fedd-Jackson, and Zach Allen.  Cooper is a clone of all three of those former multi-year Wolfpack starters.

Extremely physical with heavy hands, Cooper is dynamite in the run game, and he should slot in nicely at right guard.  He is also proficient in pass blocking, and while he doesn’t have the physical upside to justify a high recruiting ranking, Cooper certainly has a high floor as a prospect.

Allen, Adams, and Fedd-Jackson weren’t tabbed as elite recruits, but all three players were valuable contributors.  Look for Cooper to potentially do the same.
