Profile - Evyn Cooper
Buford, Georgia athlete Evyn Cooper made a return visit to Georgia Tech for the Miami game. Cooper came away impressed with the visit but still plans to wait until after the season to make his decision.
Cooper described the night game experience as fantastic. Evyn and a few friends that are his teammates too, also had a chance to talk with the players and students before the game. “It was great talking to the students. It gives you a different perspective of Georgia Tech.” Cooper and his friends are looking forward to their next visit.
Evyn also got together with some of the other recruits and talked about their commitment to Tech. Evyn also got to experience the post-game celebration in the locker room. “They were jacked up for a while but then they said it was time to get ready for the next game. I can tell this team is real tight with one another and taking it one game at a time.”
The coaches got together with Cooper to let him know how much they wanted him at Tech. Evyn met with Coach Ted Roof, Coach Mike Sewak, Coach Lamar Owens, and Coach Buzz Preston. “Coach Roof is really recruiting me hard. They are still looking at me to play either side of the ball, the best place for me to get on the field the quickest.”
The game had a big effect on Cooper but he still wants to keep his recruitment open. He also plans to take more visits. “The game was a big experience as far as visits go and it did have a positive effect on me."
Cooper still has a short list of schools that he is considering. “Purdue, Louisville, Temple, and Georgia Tech are ones I want to visit." Cooper plans to return to Tech for the Clemson game. He’ll also be going to see Temple play UCF. A Purdue visit is another possibility.
The main concern right now for Evyn is his senior season. “We have a real good chance to be state champions again and that is what we all are focusing on at Buford right now.” When the season is over, Evyn will concentrate on making his decision. "I feel after the season is the best time to focus on my own situation."
