Cooper comes in from the cold, commits to GamecocksSPORTSTALK / March 29, 2023
Former Dorman High School guard Ta’Lon Cooper (6’4″) has committed to South Carolina following his exit from Minnesota. Cooper announced his pledge on Twitter Wednesday morning. Cooper won two state championships under Thomas Ryan at Dorman before committing to Morehead State out of high school. Cooper played at Morehead State for three seasons before transferring to Minnesota. Last season with the Gophers, Cooper averaged 9.8 points and 6.3 assists per game while shooting nearly 38% from the 3-point line.
Cooper had recently taken an official visit to USC and gave a positive review following the trip, “The coaching staff and the players that I met were all good people. The facility is really nice. Nothing like coming back home and playing in front of the home crowd. It’s only an hour away. Everything about the visit was great.”
Cooper’s 6.8 assists per game placed him seventh in the country last season.
