Treasure Coast ATH Copeland Picks up Two More

Treasure Coast ATH/QB/WR Travares Copeland has been tearing up the combine circuit and continues to rack up offers since being named MVP at the Orlando combine. The 5'11, 175 pound prospect recently picked up two new offers, bringing his total to eight.

Travares Copeland is a 5-foot-11, 175 pound ATH/QB/WR at Treasure Coast. He plays QB, but is also being projected as either WR or CB at the next level after tearing it up in combines and 7on7's. He worked out at WR at the Orlando MVP camp and was simply unstoppable and earned the Overall MVP of the camp. The 3-star prospect has been reaping the benefits and just added two more schools to his list of offers, bringing his total up to eight offers and more may be on the way.

"I have two new offers, Wake Forest and Western Kentucky," said Copeland. "Western Kentucky wants me for QB, and I'm not sure Wake Forest. They just offered me and I didn't get to talk to them yet. ."

With the two recent offers, the stand-out athlete now has 8 offers as Wake and WKU joined USF, Kentucky, Gerogia State, Louisville, West Virginia and FIU, as schools extending scholarships.

"I'm glad WKU has faith in me at QB," said Copeland. "And it's just perfect to pick up two more offers. I think Vanderbilt may be close to offering."

As a junior Copeland played QB and finished with 1045 yards passing and 12 touchdowns while rushing for 287 yards with two scores, but his athleticism and versatility have colleges recruiting him at several different positions. WKU and Georgia State have offered as a quarterback, with all others offering at wide receiver with USF recruiting him as a receiver and cornerback.

"Um, I prefer quarterback," said Copeland. "But I'll play wide receiver as quick as a heartbeat."

Copeland said he doesn't have any leaders at this time, but did say that several schools are recruiting him the hardest.

"USF, West Virginia, FIU, and Kentucky are recruiting me the hardest," said Copeland. "I talk the most with USF, FIU and Kentucky."

Copeland said that he's been talking with USF and Kentucky the longest and is starting to create relationships with several of the coaches.

"Yes with USF, FIU and Kentucky," said Copeland. "They keep in touch with me often."

The Treasure Coast prospect has only taking one visit and that was to USF for their junior day and said he stays in contact with them

"USF tells me that their ready for me, and that's it's a good home for me," said Copeland. "I like how they handle things. The coaches are great and down to earth."

Copeland hasn't taken any recent visits this spring while showing out on the combine circuit, but plans on being busy this summer.

"I haven't the chance to take many visits," said Copeland. "This summer I'm going to visit every big college,"
