The last Utah QB to head to Pullman was Luke Falk. We all know how that turned out. Now, the WSU staff is hoping to make a move on 3-star signal caller Camm Cooper.out of Lehi, about 30 minutes south of Salt Lake City.
A 6-4, 185-pounder, Cooper, a lefty, holds double-digit offers, but told CF.C he’s got a great thing going with the Cougars.
“I last spoke with them on Sunday,” he said. “We’ve (he and Leach) spoken multiple times. He’s been telling me how perfect I am for the offense and team.”
Cooper, who just finished competing in The Opening L.A. Regional, has racked up offers from WSU, Arizona State, Oregon State, Tennessee, Boise State, Colorado State, Hawaii, Kansas, Nevada and others.
More offers could follow, with Cooper the top-rated QB at the L.A. regional. "The strong armed lefty impresses us more and more every time out," Scout.com national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins said this week.
Where does WSU stand in the mix? How high is his interest in the Cougars?
“Very high,” Cooper said. “If I had a top three, they would be in it.”
Cooper, who threw for 4,059 yards and 38 touchdowns last season as a junior at Lehi High, went on to make it clear he has not narrowed down his list of schools and that he’s fully open with his recruitment. However, he did add that he’s a big fan of what Leach is getting done in Pullman.
He added that WSU, Tennessee, Arizona State and Boise State are among the teams he’s most interested in right now.
“I love their offense,” Cooper said of Wazzu. “Throwing is what I do best and I definitely could improve with their coaching. Adding the offense into that, I feel like really good things could happen.”
As for an unofficial visit to the Palouse? Cooper is planning on making the trip when he’s on his spring break.
“I’m coming up soon,” he said. “ I want to see how things are run and sit through meetings to get a feel for the offense, staff and players. I also want to see the campus.”
Leach naturally likes to land his QBs early on, they’re the straw that stirs the drink for a recruiting class. Will Cooper be the one to lead WSU’s 2018 class? Time will tell, but it sure sounds like he’s high on the Cougars right now.
