PULLMAN – The pipeline from Utah to Washington State’s offensive backfield won’t end with Luke Falk. Four-star quarterback recruit Cammon Cooper announced on Sunday that he intends to play for the Cougars and continue the Beehive State’s presence in the Air Raid offense.
Cooper announced his decision on his Twitter account.
Cooper plays for Lehi High in Lehi, Utah, and is regarded as a four-star quarterback by Scout.com, which ranks him the No. 25 QB recruit in the class of 2018. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Cooper is also regarded as the ninth-best quarterback prospect in the West. His commitment continues a trend of solid QB recruiting in recent years under Mike Leach, who last year signed four-star QB Connor Neville out of Wilsonville, Oregon.
Schools such as Arizona State, Georgia, Tennessee and Mississippi reportedly offered scholarships to Cooper. As a junior, Cooper completed 64 percent of his passes for more than 4,000 yards, and tossed 38 touchdowns in 12 games.
Cooper is the sixth known recruit to commit to joining WSU’s 2018 recruiting class.
