Washington Excited about Sooner Future
Oklahoma was able to beat out several other schools last month when they secured the commitment of Muleshoe (Texas) Muleshoe High defensive end Cooper Washington. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound three-star prospect chose the Sooners over several other suitors including Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Houston, Baylor and New Mexico State. When asked why he chose the Sooners, Washington had several reasons. "They have so much good tradition there. They have great coaches too. I got to meet several of their players over there and they told me they liked playing there and that they were having a lot of fun. Also, I feel like I can get a great education there," said Washington. Despite having had so many positive experiences during his visits to Oklahoma's campus, there was one moment that sealed the deal for the Muleshoe defender. "Coach Stoops let me hold his 2000 national championship ring and it just clicked in my head that I wanted to be a part of that program." As far as the strength of Washington's commitment, Sooner coaches and fans have nothing to worry about. "I am totally firm, 100 percent OU. I'm not taking any visits anywhere besides to Norman." He plans to return to Norman on June 1 to participate in the Sooners three-day football camp. Washington has spoken with the coaching staff and says he will more than likely redshirt. "I kind of want to redshirt. I want to have a year to get into the weight room and get bigger and stronger."
