"He's a shooter," Sanford coach Stan Waterman told Scout.com. "He's complete and very athletic."
Cooney's also well-traveled. "We were at the Carrier Dome last weekend for the game against Notre Dame," Waterman said. "It was my first time there and they had 30,000 (fans) it was ridiculous."
In addition to the Orangemen, Cooney's visited Wake Forest and Villanova. Waterman indicated early offers from ‘Cuse, Wake, Maryland, Notre Dame, Villanova and St. Joseph's.
"He works hard and he's a gym rat. He's got a great feel and he understands the game. He's got to work on defending and we're just trying to add something to his game. This year he's getting to the rim and finishing on the break. He can play one or two."
