"Nothing much," answered the 6-0, 177-pound and speedy Cooper. "I'm just trying to get better working out."
Already owning scholarship offers from Oklahoma State and TCU, Baylor, Texas A&M, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Utah have all jumped in recruiting Cooper with both feet. He has said he will take his official visits.
"I'll come whenever they want me to come," said Cooper, who hinted that he will take his recruiting into the fall and maybe beyond.
One thing he did do this summer was make one camp. "I made the Oklahoma State camp in Athens (at Trinity Valley Junior College)," said Cooper. "It was a good camp and Coach (Joe DeForest, the safeties coach, I learned a lot from him. He is a pretty good coach."
Last season he rushed for 1,192 yards on 140 carries for an average of 8.5 yards a carry and 18 touchdowns. He also caught three passes for 52 yards and another score.
On defense he totaled 75 tackles (35 unassisted) with six interceptions and three fumble recoveries. Not done by a long shot, Cooper returned six punts for 143 yards and a 23.8 yard average. Schools quit punting the ball to him. On kickoffs it took them a little longer to learn as he had eight returns for 337 yards and a 42.1 yard average per return.
As a sophomore Cooper ran for 402 yards and 12 touchdowns while picking off three passes and returning one interception for a score.
Cooper said he feels that Arp has a chance to be better this season.
"I think we will be better than the last couple of years," said Cooper enthusiastically. "Yes, I'll play both ways, running back and a little wide receiver. Then I'll play safety on defense."
