Kentucky joins an offer list of Auburn, Tennessee, Florida and UCLA for the elite junior prospect. Cooper is a consensus top-25 player, with every major recruiting service listing him as a five-star.
This summer, Cooper averaged 28.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 8.6 assists and 1.8 steals per game at Peach Jam for Athletes of Tomorrow.
