Mickey Plyler on Cooper: Cooper came into Clemson's camp and lit it up a couple of years ago. He is a good athlete but make no mistake he is a pass-first guy. Cooper can move around and make plays with his feet but he is a passer. I think the first day he is on campus he is better than all Clemson quarterbacks not named Watson or Bryant.
Reminds Plyler of: Maybe Tajh Boyd
Clemson offered on 3/27/14 and he committed on 10/12/14.
