ABOUT COOPER
Among the Top 10 prospects in Pennsylvania (247Sports.com), Cooper comes to Penn State after winning back-to-back PIAA AAA state titles (2013 and 2014) at Archbishop Wood High School. Cooper and teammate Ryan Bates join the Nittany Lions after helping lead Archbishop Wood to a combined 28-2 overall mark during the last two seasons. Cooper was rated a three-star prospect by all four major recruiting services: ESPN, 247Sports.com, Rivals.com and Scout.com. Cooper was named first-team Pennsylvania Football News Class AAA All-State after recording 149 tackles, seven sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries in 2014. As a tight end, Cooper had 320 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. In 2013, the Warminster native made 152 stops. Cooper also competes on the wrestling team.

FROM COOPER'S HEAD COACH STEVE DEVLIN
"Jake was a four-year starter for me and played in four state championship games. Jake is a born leader. When Jake walks into a room the whole room changes. On the field he is tough, smart and fast. He is a student of the game and his best is still ahead for him."
