Keanon Cooper Takes First Official Visit
"My visit went good," said Keanon Cooper from Dallas, Texas. "I really enjoyed it there. Everything was good. The players treated me good. The coaching staff and the fans showed me a lot of love." "Overall I have been very impressed with Minnesota. They were the first team to come after me. I like the facilities and everything. They have a nice weight room and are building more facilities. They are doing a lot with the program, and I might want to be a part of it." "We got up there Friday night. We went out to eat at the Capitol Grill. I got the biggest steak I have ever seen. That night we went out on the town to the various clubs and to a party. I got a good feel of everything." "Saturday we attended the game against Ohio State. It was a good experience. They played really hard. It was a good game. They showed a lot of heart at the beginning of the game against a top 10 team. A couple of things went wrong. They could have given Ohio State a scare." "That night we went out downtown. It was fun hanging out with the players. My player host was a guy from Mesquite-Horn [Josh Chatman]. He showed me a good time." "The coaches told me how I would fit in and would have a good chance to play early. They told me I would be a good addition to the team, and they wanted me." When asked of other scheduled visits Cooper replied, "I have not set anything up. I plan to go up to Michigan when they play Purdue. I don't know of any other visits, and I don't have any favorites right now." Cooper has recorded two interceptions, one sack and a fumble recovery while playing linebacker for his senior season. Dallas-Skyline is 3-1 and will travel Friday night to Mesquite-Horn.
