“It was the right place for me,” Cooper told Noles247.com.
He made this commitment public with a post and a post on Twitter, which you can find below.
“Above all, I would like to thank God for all that He has done for me. Also, my mom personally, to be there with me throughout my birth. Also my family, another reason why I work hard, “Cooper wrote in his commitment note. “I would also like to thank my coaches and teammates who made this trip with me and who pushed me to train and be in class to be the best. I want to thank all of the college coaches for taking the time and recruiting me. That being said, I would like to say that I am 100% committed to Florida State University. “

The 6-foot-1, 181-pound defensive back named a top six earlier in the week. FSU was joined in this group by Louisville, Michigan, Penn State, South Carolina and Texas.
“FSU is a great school. Deion (Sanders) played it and he’s my idol. (Jalen) Ramsey, etc., all the big guys. Someday I’ll be great, “said Cooper as he named his top six.
Cooper told Noles247.com that his relationship with Sanders, who is from the Fort Myers area, played a role in his decision. He talks to Sanders and leans on him for advice. Sanders’ past success at FSU was also attractive.
He also added that with the closure of recruitment visits until September, the fact that he saw FSU made the decision with which he felt comfortable.
He visited the Seminoles in January for a junior day. It was donated by FSU last July after attending Seminoles’ late summer recruiting event.
The 247Sports.com composite ranking considers Cooper to be the nation’s # 271 and the corner # 18. It is ranked lower by 247Sports.com, as the nation’s No. 32 corner and corner star hope.
247Sports.com analyst Andrew Ivins compares him to Carlton Davis.
” A long frame that always seems to grow. Promising scope. Comfortable blanket for men. Can catch a scrum catcher and turn his hips over to run with them. Not the fastest when it comes to lateral movement, but it has a certain closing speed. Strong ball skills and instincts. Could play some security if needed. The type of prospect who has his best football ahead of him. Should eventually become a starter of a Power 5 program. Possibility to play on Sunday,Ivins wrote in his assessment.
It is the 11th current engagement of FSU.
