At 6'8" and weighing nearly 300 pounds, Will Copa is a big target on the field. Schools have begun to taken notice of him and make him a target.

Offers have arrived from San Diego State, Central Arkansas, and Texas State along with interest from Boise State, Minnesota, Missouri, Tulsa and UTSA.

"All the schools are coming the same, it's started a couple weeks ago and its been going really fast."

The offensive tackle from Westlake High School in Austin, Texas admitted that one school might have a leg up in his recruitment. "Tulsa could have an advantage because I could play with my brother for a year," Copa said.

San Diego State has been one of the schools that has contacted Copa frequently, "They were very upfront. No smoke and mirrors. They told me how it because they're confident in their school."

"I want to visit (SDSU), but nothing is planned yet."

Copa has been busy working on his all around skillset so far this offseason, "Basically for me my quickness is important and my fast twitch so I'm fast getting off the ball," Copa said. "I'm just working on getting lower and my hip flexibility. My pass blocking is the strongest part of my game."

Last year, the Westlake Chaparrals finished the season at 10-5 losing in the Texas State semi-finals to Cedar Hill, falling just short of the chance to play at Cowboys Stadium for the state title. They return several key pieces this season and Copa is determined to change the result, "We want to win district, and ultimately go and win state."

Copa is still several months away from making a college decision, "I'm gonna take some official visits. I'll decide either after senior year or during the season, but I'll probably visit my number 1 school during our bye week."

"My decision is gonna be mostly about academics because I'm there to get an education, I just happen to have the chance to play football."
