Camm Cooper a 2018 quarterback at Lehi (Utah) High School, visited Arizona State this week and gave the experience a very positive review.
"I had a great time," Cooper said. "I've been in Arizona before for baseball but this was my first time really seeing the ASU campus and I loved it. They are totally redoing their facilities and we got to see all of that first hand and what it's going to be like when it's finished and it's going to be great. I also liked the rest of the campus and everything about the area."
Cooper, who has family friends in the Phoenix-area, came away from the visit with a lot of confidence that ASU is a school he will strongly consider if offered a scholarship.
"Getting to talk with coach Graham and listening to his vision for the program and everything they've already accomplished is pretty impressive," he said. "I really liked that. Then I was able to sit with (offensive coordinator) Chip Lindsey for some time and we were just talking football. I think he wanted to see about my knowledge of the game and things like that. That was really fun. They seem like great guys and the types of coaches I would like to play for.
"One of the things coach Lindsey said is that he's going to come see me in the next few weeks. He said he's not going to offer any quarterbacks that he hasn't seen throw before and that makes sense. So he's going to come see me and a handful of other quarterbacks and then decide who he's going to offer."
BYU, Utah and UCLA are schools Cooper has already seen on unofficial visits. He's going to be making a trip to Seattle for an Elite-11 regional camp in the near future and will stop at Boise State and Washington to see those programs as well.
In 2015, Cooper started for a Lehi varsity squad that went 3-7. He reportedly completed 231 passes on 396 attempts for 2,563 yards and 22 touchdowns with 16 interceptions.
"It was a good experience getting to start as a sophomore," he said. "I thought I did well and plan to build off of that this season. I do want to try to make sure I'm making the right decisions with my throws and just keep developing and getting better."
