Woodlands High School defensive end Michael Cooper might need a couple of 5 Hour Energy drinks this…
Familiar Program First To Offer Cooper
Going into his senior season, The Woodlands (TX) defensive end Michael Cooper had somewhat of a blueprint on how to handle things in football recruiting. Back in February of this year, Michael's older brother Perry Cooper signed a letter of intent to play football at a Division I school. Now it seems like the UNLV program wants to turn things into a family affair. "Michael (Cooper) got his first offer from UNLV at the junior day/spring game," Keith Cooper, Michael's father said. "He is excited." And it seems like the ball will keep on rolling. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Cooper has made visits to plenty of programs across the country and it is starting to pay off. Of course with the Running Rebels program, not much of an introduction was needed. In fact the idea of playing with his older brother had him thinking. "UNLV was great. I had already talked with the coaches before when they were here recruiting my big bro," Michael Cooper said. "I think it would be pretty cool to play with my brother on the next level." Next program on the list set for a visit is Arizona State. As a junior, Cooper finished 2009 with 14 tackles and five quarterback hurries. He was used mainly on passing downs to apply the quarterback pressure.
