PULLMAN – Washington State is in the enviable position of returning a multi-year All-Conference starter at quarterback, a capable backup and has a highly-regarded recruit set to join the Cougars in the fall.
So of course Mike Leach and his staff are already preparing for what comes next.
WSU hosted Cammon Cooper, a four-star quarterback recruit, during Thursday’s spring football practice. Cooper and some family members came to WSU on their own dime for an unofficial visit as part of an extensive college tour they are taking this spring.
The Lehi, Utah product has plenty of options, with a number of highly-regarded programs offering to pay for his schooling. So far Cooper has visited Boise State and WSU, and also holds scholarship offers from Arizona State, UCLA, Tennessee and Louisville.
Cooper will be a senior this upcoming season at Lehi High, where he has started the past two seasons. Last year he led the Pioneers to an 8-4 record while throwing for more than 4,000 yards and completing more than 63 percent of his passes.
