Cooper — a 6-foot prospect from Marietta, Ga. — met with UK’s coaches earlier this week and already has scholarship offers from Florida, Tennessee, Auburn, Alabama, UCLA and several other top programs. 247Sports ranks him as the No. 19 overall player and No. 2 point guard in the 2020 class.
Kentucky extended a scholarship offer to the No. 1-ranked point guard in the class, Jeremy Roach, earlier this week.
Cooper averaged 22.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 7.1 assists in 21 Nike league games over the spring and summer. He was the league leader in assists and finished in the top 10 in points per game despite being a grade younger than most of the other top players on the circuit.
