Plyler on Cooper: "At the Shrine Bowl I was shocked in that he is so much tougher and aggressive than I would have thought. At the shrine bowl he played safety and really played well in space. His cover skills were better than I thought. Now I can I see him being one of the stars of this class at either safety or outside linebacker. His really nice, religious kid that you can tell he had some really positive influences in Lake City growing up."
