Stats: Copeland enrolled at West Virginia last fall and quickly adjusted to the move to wideout, as he played as a true freshman, and made two starts against Kansas State and TCU.

Commit Date: Feb 4, 2013
Recruiting Scene: Copeland announced his decision to transfer from West Virginia in November, but couldn't focus on his recruitment until January because he was waiting on his transcripts.
He had planned to take visits to South Florida and Florida Atlantic along with NC State, but committed to the Wolfpack coaches shortly after his early-February visit.
Why NC State? "When I went to North Carolina State I paid attention to coach Doeren's character, and I picked up a vibe that he was genuine, and I can trust him. Plus, I really like the school, the facilities are great, and the players were real. I can see myself being there for the next three or four years."
Picked NC State Over: South Florida and Florida Atlantic... considered offers from West Virginia, Rutgers, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, South Florida, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, and Wake Forest out of high school
