Arizona commit DeVaughn Cooper conflicted following ASU visit

A high production player on Narbonne's state championship team, Devaughn Cooper is still unsure who will get his signature on signing day.

Fresh off an official visit to Arizona State this weekend, University of Arizona wide receiver commit DeVaughn Cooper is unsure of which college he'll be signing with on Wednesday's National Letter of Intent Day. 

Cooper, a 5-foot-10, 175 pound wide receiver at Narbonne High School in Harbor City, California, has been committed to Arizona since July. He visited Syracuse earlier this month, a school that has high school teammate Sean Riley in its 2016 class. Then he visited Tempe on an official visit to ASU that concluded Sunday. 

All three schools are under consideration and Cooper said he's conflicted about what he's going to do. 

"It's going to be difficult," Cooper said. "It's kind of hard to answer it. I'm not really sure. Every community was nice and every school was nice (of the three). I like all the options. But I'm not really sure what I'm going to do."

Cooper said he was able to get a better feel for the ASU program and its coaching staff as well as how he'd be used in the offensive scheme. 

"The campus stood out," he said. "It was a nice campus. The coaches just told me to choose whatever school I think is the best fit for me. I'm glad I made the trip."

Currently, Cooper is hoping he'll have his mind made up ahead of Wednesday's start of the signing period. 

"I'm going to choose probably Tuesday night," Cooper said. "I'm not sure if I'll tell the coaches then or on Wednesday."

Cooper was a prominent member of Narbonne's 14-2 CIF State Division I-A Championship last season, which followed on the heels of a Los Angeles City-Section title. He led the team with 67 catches for 1,280 yards and 19 touchdowns.
