Mesquite’s Alex Cooper, one of the area’s top QBs last year, will seek basketball scholarship
Mesquite’s Alex Cooper, one of the Dallas area’s top quarterbacks last season, has thrown his last pass.
“I’m going basketball,” he said Wednesday.
Cooper, who was named the District 12-5A MVP last season after throwing for 3,242 yards and 30 touchdowns, was lightly recruited as a quarterback. But Cooper (6-0, 170) is No. 60 on TexasHoops.com’s list of the state’s top basketball recruits.
The point guard, who is averaging 17.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game, said he’ll sign in April, when the next signing period begins for basketball.
