Plant receiver Tristan Cooper has orally committed to Tulane following an official visit over the weekend, he announced Monday via his Twitter account.
The 6-foot, 180-pound senior will sign a letter of intent with the Green Wave during Plant’s national signing day ceremony Wednesday afternoon.
The Cooper family has connections in Louisiana. Ron Cooper worked as a defensive backs coach at LSU from 2009-2011 before moving the family to Tampa to work with the Bucs. Tristan Cooper was an all-district receiver and cornerback at University Lab High School in Baton Rouge before transferring to Plant before his senior year.
In his only season at Plant, Cooper finished with 21 receptions for 470 yards and four touchdowns. His best game came against Robinson in the regular-season finale, when he caught five passes for 127 yards in a 26-24 win.
Cooper, son of USF defensive backs and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers assistant coach Ron Cooper, picked Tulane over Ball State, Florida Atlantic, Middle Tennessee State, Penn and a number of other schools.
