Arizona is starting to fill up the 2016 recruiting class and one of the players left on the board is Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne wide receiver DeVaughn Cooper, who visited Arizona this past weekend.
“The Arizona visit was a lot of fun and it was everything I was hoping that it would be,” Cooper said. “The campus was really nice and when I got to talk to the coaches it got even better.
"They are definitely fans of my skills and think that I can get even better. I liked everything they said to me.”
Arizona’s offense intrigues Cooper.
“I’m looking for a fast paced offense that puts up a lot of points and plays a lot of receivers and puts the guys in space and lets them turn up field," he said.
“There are things I really need to work on, like my route running, my hands and my strength. I’ve gotten a lot better at all that stuff, but right now my natural ability kind of carries me.
"I’m a hard worker though. I’m on the field or in the weight room at all times, so I I’m going to be as good as possible come college time.”
Another school with a prolific offense also interests Cooper.
“Washington State has offered me too," Cooper said. "What receiver wouldn’t want to play in an offense that throws the ball as much as they do? I want to look at them more as well.”
Plus, Cooper has all the time in the world to make a decision.
“I don’t have any idea when I will make that decision," he said. "There is no rush at all though. I’m not going to shut everything down now that teams are starting to look at me.”
