#68 William Cooper
Position: Offensive Line
Previous College: None
Status: On Scholarship
William Cooper Jr. (b. Feb. 7, 1990) redshirted in Bill Snyder's second "first" season (2009) and played only sparingly last season as a reserve offensive lineman. He projects into a similar capacity this year.
Although there has been some talk of Cooper playing left tackle, his body type seems more like that of a guard to me.
I currently have him penciled in as the third-string left guard. He was not in the two-deep during spring practice.
Had William Lawson stuck around, he might have been a better fit at left tackle.
In a pinch, I suppose Zach Hanson could slide back over, but it seems more likely that one of the incoming freshmen potentially could challenge for that third-string spot if Cooper doesn't.
Hopefully, our top two tackles will stay healthy all season and we won't ever need to find out.
